Harry Potter actress Jessie Cave has announced the birth of her son, Abraham ‘Bam’ Benjamin, after what she’s described as an ‘extreme’ labour.
Sharing an image to social media on Thursday of her nursing her newborn, the star – who played Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter franchise – shared that her son was born only 40 minutes after her water broke.
She wrote: ‘Abraham “Bam” Benjamin ❤️ Our baby boy was born in the early hours yesterday morning just 40 mins after my waters were broken. Slightly extreme but so were his kicks throughout the pregnancy!
‘This has been a very different experience to my first two births… much more humbling, terrifying and out of my control.’
Adding that little Bam was in the neo-natal unit of their hospital, she insisted he was a ‘strong boy’ and in the ‘safest place for him right now’.
Jessie continued: ‘The midwives (Magda & Daisy) and the doctors and neo natal nurses have been amazing (our first one to welcome us into the ward was named Rosaria and she was extremely comforting). Thank you for all the cosmic well wishes. ???
‘Thank you to @alfiebrowncomedian for being so wonderful (again) and taking this picture in the seconds after he was born and just moments before he was wheeled away out of our arms… honestly one of the hardest moments of my life…. hopefully he will be with us soon and it will be even more perfect ❤️.
‘And BIG LOVE AND RESPECT for all the mothers who’ve experienced the neonatal unit before us, along with us. ??????? #NHS.’Credit: Original article published here.
