The birth this time was rather faster - contractions started about the same time, 3am, and we went to hospital a bit later - just after 9am. Henry was an uncomplicated water birth all done in one midwife shift, and he and Chrissy were discharged and home by 4pm - much of the advantage of a home-birth, with the positives of hospital too. Much praise again for the JR team!
