On Tuesday the 2nd of September I was surprised by a message from Maddi saying that she believed she was in first stages of labour. I was so excited and also nervous for her. Waiting patiently throughout the day I knew that Maddi would be getting closer and closer. I received a phone call around dinner time to make my way into the hospital. Just before 7pm I arrived at the birthing unit.
I made my way to Maddi's room to find her surrounded by so many people that loved and cared for her
Tobi was amazing. Giving love when love was needed.
Before we knew it, baby Jaxx decided it was time to meet everyone. Maddi was doing such an amazing job.
Maddi's waters didn't break and Jaxx emerged still inside the membranes. The midwife had to physically cut the membranes with scissors.
Its a boy!! Jaxx Joseph Gore was born at 7:18pm
Tobi couldn't wait to meet his new little brother. Love at first sight.

As baby Jaxx was needing a little assistance in breathing, he was taken to have some oxygen and be monitored.
It wasn't long before Jaxx's oxygen levels were up to normal
First cuddles with Dad.
Unfortunately things didn't go to plan for Maddison and she needed to be taken into surgery shortly after Jaxx was born. So I popped back into the hospital a few days later to grab some bonding shots that we missed out on after the birth.
Time to go home little Jaxx
