Teddy. Edward Constantine Wright. Born on Monday 16th May 2016 at 6.45pm weighing just 6lb 2oz. He was full term (well 4 days short of his due date). I was induced following leaking waters and reduced movements, and was in active labour for six hours after they broke my front waters. Gas and air got me through (and lots of yoga breathing, posing and trying to reassure myself “You’ve got this”). I must have guzzled down about two litres of Lucozade energy and eaten my body weight in jelly babies during that time in an attempt to “Keep my energy up!”
Elle Wright is a wife, mother, author and blogger. After the death of her son, Teddy, at three days old, Elle started writing to navigate her new life and as a way to feel purpose again. Her Feathering The Empty Nest blog is a way of finding light in darkness, positivity in times of desperation and, hopefully, making a few people laugh along the way.
