Max Sebastian Stewart Nabarro was born 05:59am on the 8th June 2020 weighing in at 3.15kg in a birthing bath at the spires midwife led unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. Ellen had arrived at the hospital around 3 hours before the birth and had a relatively short but tough labour and expertly managed pain through gas and air whilst channelling her natural body instincts and energy to deliver without any tearing. The bravery and fortitude was a privilege to witness, what a woman! Aided in no small part by Mandy, Ellen and baby Max are well and recovering. Max is feeding vigourously and is looking healthy but will stay until he can have a scan of his kidneys, Ellen is tired but happy.
Max was born to the sound of “begin by letting go”, a song by Etherwood.
