Ivy [Jun. 8th, 2012|12:05 pm]
Tony Grist
Ivy Belle James was born at 6.20 this morning.  It was a rough road- everything Alice wanted to avoid- gas and air, epidural, forceps. Mother and daughter are bruised and battered but otherwise in good shape. There are pictures on Facebook. 

Ivy is beautiful. Yes, I know, everybody says that about their own, but the truth is some babies are, some aren't, and Ivy definitely is.

People always want to know a baby's weight- can't think why (neither can Alice) but I inquired anyway. Ivy comes in at 7lb 6 oz. 

I think I'll go pour myself a glass of wine.

Ivy really is a beautiful baby. Congratulations Grandad Tony and Grandma Ailz. You enjoy your glass of wine and I shall raise one for you all later this evening.
Lots of love

Well done both mother and daughter - definitely worth pouring yourself a snifter or two.

Congratulations! I am sorry she couldn´t have the natural birth, but the important thing is that they both are ok!

As long as she's here and all is well that's all that matters. I like her name very much! Congratulations to all! :)

Congratulations to you all.

These days they encourage women to do all these birthing plans, but I don't know why because labour can't really be planned. Elsewhere on LJ, I've just read a friend's account of how the home birth they had planned ended up rather more do-it-yourself than they intended. Labour progressed faster then expected and baby arrived before the midwives did! However, all was well, which is ultimately all that matters and I hope that Alice recovers quickly from the birth.

By the way, I'm delighted to see that the name Ivy is making a comeback. That was my mother's name and has been out of fashion for years. :)

Thanks.

Alice had very strong views about how the birth should go. She's even been writing a book about it. She hadn't calculated on this final plot twist.

Ivy's a great name. A 19th century name...
