Shelley delivered my son

Shelley delivered my son in December of 2018, we flew down to Melbourne from our home in Byron for all our pregnancy care and 6 weeks pre due date to wait for baby’s arrival. We are still so grateful to Shelley for supporting us to have the most incredible birth with all our wishes honoured throughout.
Now tuning in to refresh myself for baby number two.
