FIRST TIME MUM FEELING CONFIDENT & IN CONTROL!
Updated: Sep 6
Hi Emma! Wanted to reach out and say thank you.
Discovering your Instagram page by pure fate in my third trimester was a game changer for me.
I delivered our first baby girl, Elsie, Thursday 10th March 2022 at 8lbs 12oz with no pain relief at all until we arrived at the birth centre to discover I was already 9cm dilated and baby girl was on her way! Your recommendation for the wave comb was also a game changer.
We live 45 mins from our birth centre and the comb was a godsend for the car ride! I literally kept your voice in my head to get through the surges - FFFF, kept my jaw loose and KICO position to birth. Your Flash Cards helped me too! I had a moment of self doubt which looking back now must have been my transition phase.
As my body went into the final stages of labour I have never felt more at peace with my body and its capabilities. Elsie was out in less than 45 minutes once I was in the birth pool.
You changed my birth experience for me 100000% and I felt confident at all the later stages of pregnancy to decline interventions and trust my body to birth a baby the perfect size for me, exactly when the time was right for me to do so.
I look forward to sharing my own positive birth experience with friends now and let them know birth is beautiful, peaceful and a magical journey to be celebrated and not feared.
Charlotte, David and baby Elsie 💕 P.S 41 weeks + 1 day of perfection!
