The full story will follow but the short version is that my sister laboured for almost 24 hours to get fully dilated but he would not engage. Sam and Deborah then contracted an...

Hi Shantala Thanks for trying to help. We could of course decamp to near my sister but then I think that she'd feel duty bound to let us stay which would sort of defeat the object. We talked about going to a hotel nearby and just not telling her but we would have been there for a week already!!!! My...

Some days I simply cannot believe that it is happening to us and think that I will wake up and it will all have been a dream. Cannot believe that this i...
