Getting the baby out was hellish. It might even have been worse for Lainey. It's all a very long tale which I might relay one night at the Horse and Groom, but for now it's enough to say that he's a he, was 9lb, we don't have a name yet but everyone is ecstatic. And at least two of us are enormously relieved.
