A four-week antenatal video program, training women and their birth partners to create calm, joyful births from anywhere in the world.
I'm not sure if you remember but we were emailing you over the new year and booked your course when I was only a couple of months pregnant as I was so excited about the thought of having a baby but TERRIFIED of giving birth. We started the course when I was around 20 weeks, snuggling down each week for the next video and both feeling so empowered and excited (!) for the birth. People would ask me how I was feeling as I approached the end and their faces would be total shock as I explained how much I LOOKED FORWARD to it! That's down to you guys. Thank you. On Saturday 15th August Minnie Marlow was born at home, in the water. My labour was 44 hours long (good times). I had my Calm Birth affirmations printed on the fireplace, the pool set up and lots of blankets and duvets around me. After many hours in labour I wasn't dilating. I didn't panic but I was tired. We found out that Minnie was back to back and the midwife decided I should get in the pool early and just rest. I had the "Ahhh" moment as I stepped in, popped a Calm Birth MP3 on and closed my eyes. 30 minutes later I jumped up ... "OH MY GOD! WHAT IS HAPPENING!" ..."YOU'RE CROWNING!" 40 minutes later Minnie was born :) No medical pain relief, no high pitched screaming, no fear. I just had two wonderful midwives, my amazing partner, my Mum and your powerful words. I cannot tell you how proud I am of myself and my new family... for everything we accomplished that day. Thank you both for everything xxx
