Blood pressure...looked just great! (Ru squeezed the bulb for the midwife)
Boys looking on
Pull away shot of the whole lovely "clinic" room where
our practice sees all clients. So pretty and warm and open.
(small bathroom and waiting room just out of the frame
to the right)
Up the shirt and down the skirt to find the belly under it all
Midwife, feeling the baby...nice size, good reactive movement, and yes, head down!
Listening to that heartbeat, clear and strong
Ru, playing cars at our feet.
This is the sort of thing the boys do during most of the appointment
The midwives have the best toys!
I listen to Baby, very clear and strong.
Ru has a go...
....and Dee too...getting tips from the midwife about what he's supposed to be hearing, "Bum bum bum!"
And finally the Daddy/photographer takes a break to listen to his youngest child drum away.
Good times. So, that's what happens at a typical midwife appointment. Minus the part where we sit at the desk together and chat and laugh which isn't nearly so interesting in photos. Thanks for coming along!
