Hayden Aaron arrived via c-section on 6/01/2012 at 8:45am.

Weight: 8lb4oz (3.77kgs)
Length: 54cm
Head Circ: 36cm

He is perfect with a full head of dark hair.

I lost several litres of blood due to the placenta praevia and required a balloon to be inserted into my uterus to help it contract. I have also had 2 blood transfusions over the past 2 days.

Asides from that I am feeling wonderful and am on cloud 9 to be holding my son! DH and I are completely besotted.

Will post full birth story when I get home.

Congratulations!!!! Long time coming but you got there in the end - well done! I too had heomorraged at birth with my second child, it takes a bit to recover from, and it's a struggle to breastfeed but it can be done. Have a read of my birthstory if you get a chance, it's on my blog under 'Rhys' birthstory'.

Can't wait to read your birthstory! Congrats again and take care of your little man :)

Much love, Desirée
