He’s Here!


Huxley William Harold arrived yesterday, the 16th May, at 3.04pm. He was born via semi-emergency caesarian after four loooong days of contractions, a worrying period of decreased movements, heartbeat decelerations and a lot of monitoring. It’s been a long week.


We are both doing very well in hospital and will be here for a few more tests until Monday at the earliest whilst the Doctors determine whether or not he has inherited the same condition as Elfie. So far so positive.

He is pretty amazing.

  1. Congratulations Alice! He is amazing. Well done on pulling through a traumatic week. I’ve enjoyed your tweet commentary! I hope the next few days go smoothly and you and Hux are home safe soon.
