Sharon struggling through labour.
Sharon in the bath. The warm water did a good job of reducing her discomfort, but she got chilled very quickly, which exhausted her far more than the labour had been.
Another bath photo, obviously suffering...
A nice reflective shot.
Sharon and Lex's first feed. Took him about an hour to find the nipple and latch on. These days they recommend letting the baby find the breast on it's own, and attach in its own time. Causes less problems, in most cases.
One of a sequence of shots, all of which are nice.
God life is hard!

And for all those other mum's out there who feel a bit ripped off that Shaz had a comparitively easy run, a shot of Sharon straight after the birth in which she looks a bit pale and drained. She did better than most, but it still knocked the stuffing out of her.
