    All I wanted was FOB there and he wasn't he really let me down.

    I was lucky enough to have my cousin there and she was wonderful I am so grateful she was there, she was the best support person I could ask for. She made sure I was drinking water, kept refilling the ice, put me in the shower when she thought I needed it, rocked with me ( I was told to rock side to side to get the baby down) Then when I was pushing she was pushing too.

    I know she did so much more then that but I really can't remember

    She really was amazing so much so that I think she should be a Doula

    My then partner was great. I laboured at home for 6 hours and 11 at hospital and he helped throughout. .

    At home he timed contractions and fussed over me. One thing that did annoy me was that he kept calling the hospital as he was worried about me. On the third call they told me to come in and get checked so ultimately I was happy he did it.

    Once at hospital he helped with drinks and held my hand. Helped me get up from kneeling and rubbed my back. My MIL was also there and she did back rubbing too.

    Oh and he was my voice when I could not speak. He told the midwives he would deck the ob if she came back in the room and spoke to me like that again. She had said something like I was not trying hard enough during pushing in a really not nice manner. We didn't see that ob again and a nice helpful one soon arrived. :-)

    He knows me better then anyone inthe world. I just hope he is strong enough to be firm when I'm in pain!!!
    I was the same, and wouldnt you know it he DID stick to our plan and not give in to me
    Im ultimately glad though, I love that I got to experience a traumatic labour with no painrelief, I feel empowered now to conquer ANYTHING!

    I don't remember much, I was kind of in a trance. i do remember DH holding up my head in the bath during my first labour. I think he got really tired cos it was really heavy.
    In my second labout which was posterior, I remember him talking to the midwive and asking if the blood and vomiting was normal, which she said it was, so that was comforting.
