What An Enlightening Weekend
Thank you very much for an enlightening weekend. I now feel confident, I have a clearer idea of what to expect, and really....feel ready for birth! My husband is also aware of a whole lot of things he did not know before, and he also now has an open mind to a lot of aspects of birth he was unaware of. As a result, we already feel closer together and more empowered. Your natural, wise and evidence-based approach made us feel very at ease and engaged in the subject. We came home and wrote our birth plan! So thank you very much! Truly worth it.
My husband and I attended your Hypnobirthing course at your home in October this year. Our baby was due on 1st December and I wanted to let you know that baby arrived 7 days early, on 24 November. We now have a beatiful baby boy called Harry who weighed at birth 6 lb 6 oz.
I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful birth and we all wanted to thank you as we are convinced that it was the hypnobirthing techniques that we learnt that helped us have the natural birth we really wanted.
I woke up at 6.00 am on the 24th with what I thought were surges and within an hour I was having surges every 5 minutes. We put on your CD and I used the breathing you had taught us until about 11am when I realised things were moving pretty quickly and so I got in to the birthing pool. Harry was born an hour later at 12.18. All done within 6 hours!
Chris was a great support reminding me of the visulations and breathing during the second stage when things required a bit more concentration!
I can honestly say that giving birth to Harry was a fabulous experience. He was born in a calm relaxed environment and at no stage did I feel out of control.
I admit I was a little sceptical when we decided to enroll on your course and on completing the course, whilst determined to practice the techniques and do my best to use them in labour, I had no idea that it would be so effective and make labour such a wonderful experience.
Harry is a very peaceful baby and I am sure that the way he came in to the world has contributed to that.
