Quentin’s First Pictures

Here are some of Quentin’s first baby pictures. My birth story is written here. These were taken at the National Maternity Hospital on Holles Street in Dublin, Ireland. These pictures were taken within 1 hour of the birth.

The midwife’s name was Grace. She was the only person other than my husband in the room with us. She delivered, checked the baby and cleaned up. It was nice having only one additional person at the birth. She was such a good midwife! She even visited me at my home before the birth during my pre-natal check-ups and she visited me after the baby was born! It was wonderful. I wish I would’ve taken her back to the USA!

  1. What a lovely story, thanks for posting it with all the details. I just found out I’m pregnant and I see myself in the situation of choosing where to give birth. I’m living in Ireland and I was thinking in going to Holles St. too. If you don’t mind that I ask, where you a public or semi-private/private patient? Choices can be so overwhelming when we don’t know exactly what we will need. Thanks again for sharing your story. All the best to you and your family.
