We had a new Mum called Megan on the same day as Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to Archie - and thanks to our lovely midwives at CRH our Megan managed the perfect natural birth.
Our Megan had little baby Wilbur - who nearly a week over due like Archie - in our birthing pool with proud Dad Nick at her side on the same day Meghan and Harry welcomed their baby boy.
The couple, from Wyke, already have two daughters Daisy and Florence and their previous birth experience at CRH made CRH Birth Centre their automatic choice for Wilbur. He made his arrival late on Monday weighing 7lbs 7oz.
Our Megan, added: “ I wanted a midwife-led birth as I wanted it to be homely and not medicalised if possible. It’s a lovely atmosphere and my husband could sleep over with us. After the experience when my daughter was born there I knew I wanted to be in CRH Birth Centre.
“ The pool is amazing in terms of pain relief. I had been on a TENS machine but once in the pool it was incredible. I just became more focussed once I was in there and the whole experience was amazing.”
She said she had seen the Royal announcement on their Instagram page and at that time didn’t know she was having baby boy. “After two girls he is a lovely surprise and very much welcome.”
And how did proud Dad Nick respond? Photocall to the world, like Harry?
Megan laughed: “ Ha, no. He just about made it to Costa. “
The Trust’s Head of Midwifery, Joyce Ayre, said: “ Our congratulations to “our” Megan and Nick and a big welcome to baby Wilbur. A new arrival is always a lovely, special time for our parents – and all of us here - and we thank them for their kind words about our midwives and their birthing experience."
