The Birth of Elias Bradshaw


So this is quite a side-step from the usual wedding content on this site. A very personal post of a difficult time that took a while – five years in the making in fact.

It was a difficult end to a difficult journey. Laura was initially induced but a couple of days into the induction Elias’ heart rate repeatedly dropped so an emergency Caesarean was the best course of action. The procedure had to happen so quickly that we didn’t even make it out of the anaesthetic room.

You can read more about our journey and find out more about this side of our lives over on Laura’s Instagram and her website/podcast Just Bad Luck.

He was born on the 28th September 2022 and these photos are from the first month or so of his life… all’s well that ends well!

Welcome Elias.
