Ella and Matt Mills from Deliciously Ella talk about their daughter Skye's birth
Katharine recently caught up with Matt and Ella Mills, from Deliciously Ella, for a KGHypnobirthing refresher course. They did the full course with Katharine before their daughter Skye was born. After giving birth, Ella described her experience on instagram, saying "I went totally into my own space during the birth, focusing on every sensation and visualising what was happening during it, thinking of each one as a wave. It’s a whole other level of surrendering and trusting your body totally, and we spent months focusing on letting go of fear, learning everything we could about birth, so that we felt as educated and informed about every step of the process and every decision along the way."
In this video Ella and Matt reflect on their experience and describe how the work and preparation before Skye arrived helped them feel prepared for labour and birth, as well as how empowering the process was. Understanding what was happening gave them a sense of security and allowed them enjoy a truly bonding experience.
