We stood on the stairs and I rubbed her back and waited for the next contraction. It was a BIGGIE!
Slo-o-wly but surely, we came down the stairs into the lounge where her Hubby had laid down a blanket and pillows. ‘M’ lay down and the next contraction came quickly followed by a baby boy!
Her hubby was on the doorstep asking the ambulancemen where they were. They told us to clear baby’s airways and wrap him up well.
All the mammy could say was, “The carpet, the carpet!” lol
It was just a wonderful experience and I was honoured to have been a part of it.
I woke the next morning and thought it was all a dream!
