To start with, I will share an incredible experience I had with my mother.

I have always loved my mum and idolised her. But just like many teenagers, my mum and I had our issues when I was in my late teens. At 20 I moved all the way to the other side of the world (from Germany to Australia). But we always talked a lot and visited each other at least once a year. Despite the distance, we grew closer, mainly due to me growing out of my teenager silliness. So much so that I wanted her present at the births of my children.
The birth of my daughter was amazing. But nothing could have prepared us for what happened when my son was born. My labour was so mild that I didn’t realise how fast it was advancing and by the time we were getting ready to go to the birth centre, it was too late. My son was born on our loungeroom floor, into his grandmothers loving hands with his big sister looking on.
Later that day as we were processing what had just happened, my mum said: “Who would have thought 10 years ago that we would become such a great team, that I would act as your midwife”
Mum, I love you more than words can say. And THANK YOU for all you have done and continue to do for me and our whole family.
