The Delivery of Hayden Pascal 10th April 2012
This was it guys.. The moment we had been waiting for… after a long 41weeks & 4days we were finally going to meet our little tummy love bug…
My Gas & Air was removed with force but I held on to the mouth piece & pretended it was still there – No going back now.
I had the midwife in front of me, student midwife the the right of her. My mum to the right of me & my boyfriend to the left of me. I cant really remember but I think there was another midwife in the room.
I told the midwife I felt the need to push. She said when you are ready start pushing. Because I would feel the contractions & they were monitoring the CTG monitor they told me when they were coming also.
I remember hearing
“Come on push you can do it”
“Through your bum, like you’re doing a poo”
“Come on Charlotte”
“Oooo I can see hair”
“Take it easy”
“You’re doing so well”
“OK here we go again”
“One, Two Three – PUSH”
I kept asking if the head was out.. I knew that once that bad boy was out the rest will be a piece of cake.
When pushing I had my fella holding up one leg, My mum holding the other while pushing my head down onto my chin… It was so hard trying to push with no energy! It felt like it was going on forever.
I gave a little whimper & said “I cant do it” The midwife said “Ah what do you mean you cant do it.. do you want me to get my big scissors?”
I shouted “NO!” looool
At that point I thought to myself… Its time to show the world I can do anything as long as I put my mind to it. All the pregnancy shows came flooding into my head – 16 & Pregnant and One Born every min UK & USA. I thought to myself … if they can do it I know I can!
The episode that stuck in my mind while pushing was Chelsea Houska from 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 – Weird I know but Ive seen it like 5million times lol
With that I gave a mega push & looked at the student midwifes face she was amazed & told me the head was out! I knew all I had to do was the shoulders and I would have my little boy in my arms.
With 2 more huge pushes he slid out & was placed on my chest.
I can remember him being slimy & warm! He gave the cutest cry EVER!! and I kissed him on his head. Looked at my fella who was in shock & my mum was in tears!
What an experience to say the least.
The midwife gave my fella the scissors to cut the cord all I remember is seconds later blood splattered everywhere from the cord … On me, him & both midwives lol
They took him away for the once over, gave me a shot in my leg to deliver the placenta & gave him a shot in his leg for the vitamin K.
He was passed to his daddy then passed to my mum who had a little cuddle.

They sitched me up because I had a 1st degree tear & then he was passed to me so I could have a proper look at my litte munchkin… He was so beautiful, I felt so blessed & so happy! Couldnt believe he was finally here & all ours!
