One contraction, two babies
Share your labour of love
What was your labour like? We asked Kiwi mums to share their experiences. Kathy Whitehead made short work of hers.
Most of you are going to hate me.
I awoke on Friday morning to find my waters were leaking.
I went shopping and had a shower.
I rang the maternity ward to let them know they would be seeing me later in the day and was promptly ordered to get myself in there, as I was a high risk pregnancy (twins, with one breach) and needed to be monitored.
I had just been checked over by the doctor when I finally felt a contraction.
That was it.
I was pushing and both twins were born naturally a few minutes later.
I would do labour for anyone.
