Mother of one (born 2000s), from the Midlands

My labour was very quick, five hours between first contraction and birth. I remember going into myself, breathing deeply and although I could hear what was going on around me, I wasn't really involved in it.

My husband was with me throughout and he cut the cord when our daughter was born. He then sat and held her while I was "seen to". The thing I remember most is the look on his face as he gazed at her.
