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.
Thank you from us all.
