In today’s episode, I share with you my third birth. Although Jonathan and I had discussed having a third child, we had not made a final decision so it was a bit of a surprise when we discovered that I was pregnant. I was a bit nervous to tell Jono and I took some home pregnancy tests and watched as the lines got darker each day and it took a while to process. Ottie was conceived while we were on holiday in Fiji which is a nice thought as that’s where Jono is from. The running joke was that we bought an extra coconut home from the homeland.
There was no question for me that I wanted to give birth to my third baby back at the Mercy Birth Centre. I had both Niko and Louis there under the care of midwives. I was thrilled to find that I had been assigned Jo. Jo had been apart of my care team in both the boy's pregnancies.
