Anita joins mums’ club

30 Nov 2010

Anita joins mums’ club Image

After organising many toddler play-groups at the Docklands’ Hub, Anita Paganoni has joined the mothers’ club.

The community hubs officer gave birth to Charlotte at Monash Medical Centre on October 12.  Charlotte was six weeks premature which meant Anita had only one day of her 12 months maternity leave before becoming a mum.

Anita finished work on Friday, October 8 and had the weekend to start preparing things at home.   But her waters broke at 2.30 am the following Tuesday morning.

“We rang the hospital and they said to come in,” Anita said.  “The hooked up a foetal monitor for a few hours but it wasn’t long until they said the baby was coming.”

Charlotte Edith Paganoni Shannon was born by Caesarean at 10.49am.  She was 2.8kg and spent time in special care before coming home.  

Charlotte is Anita and her partner Brett’s first child and, according to her parent, is a good girl … so far!

Anita is enjoying being a mum and says she is getting used to the lack of sleep and other “joys” that go with parenting.
