Kaylee Rae Hodge

Introducing Kaylee Rae Hodge.

We arrived at the Rotorua Hospital just before 11am on the morning of June 18, 2009. We were quickly shown to our room (room nine) in the perinatal ward of the hospital as the birthing ward was all full up.
After some initial consults from staff midwifes, the anesthialogist and the head surgeon for the day, we were quickly being whisked off to theatre to get prepped for surgery.
Kim was a real trouper and Graham, our midwife midhusband took loads of photos for us during the surgery.
Obviously we can’t share any of them with you due to this site being child friendly…

Will add some more info and photos later.
Gotta get back to the hospital.
