I’m so happy to introduce our little bundle of joy to you. Little Noah was born on October 11, 2014 at 1:55 pm. I gave birth at the Rosie Birth Centre in Cambridge and would totally decide to go there again. As I gave birth naturally without an epidural the pain was like hell – but having our little one on my chest for the first time definitely made up for it! My midwife back in Germany told me to concentrate on breathing – that helped me to survive the 14 hours. But even more supporting was my boyfriend – he supervised my breathing during every contraction and never left my side. I am so thankful for having the best partner I could ever ask for :) The first few weeks have been quite tough as Noah suffered from jaundice and I had really bad back pain. Luckily little one is healthy now and gaining a good amount of weight every week. My back is getting better but still hurts, let’s hope it heals soon. The nights are still really exhausting and I feel like an owl – only living during the night. Noah’s tummy often hurts and his rhythm is the opposite way around. So we’re currently working on a routine and trying to help him with his colics.
Even though I have less time for myself and a permanent lack of sleep, I absolutely love being a mum. Having a little baby is the greatest gift in the world and I am so grateful for that.
Now I send lots of hugs to all of you!
