I would lik to announce the birth of my son Daniel John Wilson born this morning at 07:06 by emergency c-section
Both mother & baby are fine - NOW :(
At approx 2am this moring my partner suffered a sever asmtha attack whilst labouring, this was firther complicataed by the onset of a panick attack and an anxiety attack. This resulted in her being unable to breathe unaided, and her blood pressure being raised to dangerous levels & the baby was found to be in distress
She was rushed to theatre where the managed to stabalise her, but the baby was still in distress. The only solution was a c-section, but that could not be done at that time (approx 4am) due to the fact that hayley came close to further asthma attacks when lay on her back. It looked at one stage that I could lose either Hayley or Daniel or both.
Fortunately they found hayley to be 7cm dilated and the baby's heart was stable so they decided to wait and see if labour could proceed naturally. However, by 0630 the babys heart was in distress again, but hayley's breathing was stable so a c-section was performed
Daniel was born slightly groggy, and weighed 7lb 12oz but with an APGAR score of 1!! this increased to 9 within a few minutes after some immdetiate resus.
Hayley is now recovering in Oldham's High Dependency Unit overnight, whilst Daniel is in the neo-natal unit for obs.
A very traumatic day for all.
I'm bo****ed so am off for a kip for a few hours
in the mean time here is Daniel..
