Janu Grobelaar |BIRTH STORY

Janu Grobelaar | BIRTH STORY

It was around 4 AM on the morning of 31 January 2019 that I received word that it was time for Little Janu Grobelaar to be born… I made my way to Louis Leipoldt Mediclinic – nervous, excited and overjoyed that I get to witness the birth of a new life – and the birth of two parents…

On my way to the hospital I received a call from Mommy, Sunette, she was 10cm dilated and getting ready for baby Janu’s arrival. I got to the hospital and rushed to the delivery room. As I stepped into the room Sunette was already pushing, I was just in time!

The atmosphere in the room was calm – the mood was happy! Sunette was grinning from ear to ear between contractions. She was so ready to meet her little boy!

Janu was born at 5:35 AM. He was a healthy 3.39kg baby boy. Having waited for their miracle rainbow baby for a long time, watching Sunette and Heinrich become parents was such an amazing honour for me! The relief in Sunette’s eyes – finally holding her baby boy was so emotional and raw…   

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. – By Elizabeth Stone
