Sally and Graeme resist the advice to have an induction based only on the identification of her baby’s size. Her caregivers were concerned about the risk of the baby’s shoulders getting stuck. Her labour starts spontaneously at 41 +2 weeks, and whilst it was a long labour, she manages with the incredible support of Graeme. He helps her to find comfort and coaches her along the way. We discuss how important it is for women to be free to move during labour – because they look for comfort, which supports the descent of the baby, and can reduce risk of baby getting stuck. Graeme shares how his preparation and doing the practices really helped him to know what to do on the day, and stay really present to Sally’s needs. Their son arrived at 4.44kg. An inspiring story for anyone who is worried about having a big baby.
