lucas born at buderim hospital on 3 june 2016
I just want to say a massive thank you for your words of wisdom and support throughout pregnancy yoga!
I had the joy of an intervention and drug free water birth Friday 3 June, 15 days 'overdue'. Lucas Hayes Alexander arrived at 8:20am weighing 4.35kg and 54cm long.
I trusted my intuition and opted not to be induced and had 3 acupuncture sessions at Andrea Bicket's. Not only did yoga help me physically through my labour but mentally as well. I found some of the affirmations you would reinforce through class really helped, specifically 'I'm strong, my baby is strong' and 'slow down'. My 8 hour was over with so quickly and easily because my mind was strong and focused. As you thought, labour was 'easier' than my pregnancy.
I'm so very grateful to have been surrounded by such positive influences throughout pregnancy who helped me achieve the birth I wanted. This includes you and the wonderful women your classes attract! Thank you again! 💐
