Introducing… Our newest family member

Phew! This week has certainly been an eventful one!


I’m over the moon to announce that our newest family member, Henry Rupert Harding (blog name to be confirmed), entered the world on Tuesday 23rd June 2015 at 14.31 BST after the most amazingly empowering and speedy labour at home. He weighed a chunky 8lb 7oz and wanted food almost immediately, so our hopes for his future career as a Michelin-starred Chef seem just. 

I can’t wait to share our wonderful Home Birth story with you all, but for now I’m taking a bit of time off from the world to savour these precious sacred days of newborn cuddles, establish breastfeeding, and to adjust to our life as a family of four.

Life is wonderful.
