The Drew Jessica Hartell Birth Story

Well, it took a while, but here it is. From start to finish. The story of how Drew Jessica Hartell came into our world. Click on the video link on the right hand side of my BLOG page, just below the photo. It's 16 minutes long and just to warn you folks, it DOES contain a bit of gooeyness...in the form of my placenta. The student Midwife was keen to show Jerry what she had learnt and Jerry was keen to film it. And don't worry, there are no front bottoms in this film. Enjoy!


  1. hi, id like to say a BIG congratulations on the birth of ur lil girl, and wat an amazing video, im due to give birth anytime now to my second daughter. wish me luck, hope it was as easy as your labour! xx

  2. Hi,just watched your video. I'm due to give birth to my first little girl in June this year. I've been terrified but watching this has made me realise it can truly be a wonderful experience. I had tears rolling down my face at the end! Congrats she is gorgeous x

  3. Just watched your birth video as it was being discussed on babycentre.co.uk. Im expecting my first baby in 5 weeks and I sincerely hope my experience is as magical as yours was! I cried it was so moving. Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful daughter. Sam

  4. You lovely, lovely people, how lucky you are to have such a beautiful daughter! I am sat here crying (with happiness) after watching your video. Due in June to have baby number 2. Very scared, but you showed me how it can be done! Kate. x

  5. Well....... i have had to stop crying before being able to type this! I have just watched your beautiful video after following a link from babycentre.co.uk. I am sat here with 4 1/2 weeks to go, we are expecting Abigail May(Abi) on the 31st of May. A younger sister to Ollie who is 17 months. I just wanted to say thankyou for sharing this video, i am soooooo excited about her arriving now, you have brought back all my special memories of Ollie being born. I am sat here with braxton hicks and nausea so you never know she may be here sooner rather than later! Thanks again. xx
