The radiant Trilby-Roux Dewhurst mum to Eleanor (5) and twins, Walter and Lucinda (16 months). Eleanor's pregnancy was textbook uncomplicated. Toward the end of her labor, Trilby-Roux began to have difficulty and had to have an epidural with forceps assistance. She also broke her tail bone during the delivery, which made her recovery quite painful. Trilby-Roux didn't want intervention and had a hard time with things being so intrusive. Eleanor was healthy though and didn't have any issues breastfeeding. She had hoped for her next birth to be a home birth but wasn't comfortable having twins at home. She decided to find a provider in the private sector and after some searching, she found a doctor willing to respect her wishes for a natural, vaginal delivery. She was induced at 35 weeks because Lucinda had stopped growing, but was able to deliver without any medication. She found the experience very empowering and felt great physically. Her twins spent 4 weeks in the special care nursery to learn to feed and grow. Her first few weeks at home were tough as she got in a groove with breastfeeding. She had to feed then pump, then feed then pump, and found herself pretty much confined to her couch. Thankfully she had the full support of her husband of mum and was able to focus on the twins until she got the hang of feeding. Trilby-Roux says she talks the talk to her daughter about how amazing her body is and was happy to participate to show her that she can also walk the walk.
