When pregnant with my second baby, I decided to have a home birth. In this video, I go through the pros and cons of home birth, how we made our decision to have our baby at home rather than at the hospital, and how my second labour differed to my first labour.
I also talk about my experience of shoulder dystocia and how that was managed by the midwives attending my home birth.

I’m Chloë. I live in London, UK, with my three boys, aged seven and under, and my boyfriend, Sam. And my absolute favourite thing in the world is documenting our family story through words, videos, and photos.
I started my blog when my firstborn was a baby. I was 25, and my whole world had changed with an unplanned pregnancy. I felt lonely and bored and was hoping a blog might help connect me with like-minded parents whilst also giving me a much needed creative focus.
Our sudden ascent into parenthood was messy, life with kids is messy, and so is the state of my head at the best of times- hence Sorry About The Mess.
Things are much more settled in our life now. I’ve gone on to have two more children, and you’ll mainly find me chatting about house renovations (we bought a fixer-upper), my motherhood experience so far, and plans for our upcoming wedding!
As well as blogging and vlogging, you can find me chatting away daily on Instagram.
The digital record, that’s for me, really. So I’ll be able to look back and recall every fibre of the happy moments, the everyday moments, and the big life events that make up our family story.
