Sadly due to time constraints and lack of GSM & WiFi at Hull women's and children's Hospital, This post has been sometime coming...
Ruben Dade-Alexander Bissett was born at 12:17 on April 12th 2005. He weighed a mighty 9lb 12oz and was eventually delivered by Emergency caesarian 26 Hours after Jo was induced, and 32 Hours after her waters had broken.

I must say I have never been more proud of both of them! Jo stuck at things, even though they looked really rough, and managed to stick to her plan of avoiding Heavy Pain relief. The C-Section however did require a spinal (anesthetic directly into the spine via a big fat needle). Jo handled this incredibly well, taking into account her phobia of needles.
We'd like to say a GREAT BIG THANK to everybody involved and at the hospital!
More information and birth stories later.
