Our first baby, Jeremy, arrived at home less than 2 hours after labour started. Amelia made what could have been an emergency procedure seem calm and normal. When I bled excessively, Amelia came with me in the ambulance and reassured me throughout, remaining at the hospital until I was settled.
On becoming pregnant a second time, we engaged her immediately. Tom was premature so we had to have him in hospital but I turned to Amelia through labour and delivery.
When, a week later, he stopped breathing, we phoned Amelia straight after calling an ambulance; she arrived first and saved his life. Again she accompanied us to hospital, holding him in the ambulance when I was too scared to, and remained with us until well after he was ventilated and in an incubator.
Amelia called every day for the two weeks we were in intensive care and then resumed caring for us as normal when we came home. It was wrong of me to call her that awful Sunday, but you turn to someone you trust in a crisis and she was the first person I thought of to care for my baby
