We honestly can't thank you enough for everything. We had the most empowering, beautiful birth of our little boy early yesterday morning by using all the incredible tools you taught to us. You gave us both the confidence to trust that my body & baby would work in harmony together.
My waters broke at home at 8 pm & surges were strong & fast almost immediately. Arrived at the hospital at 9 pm where Tav & I were left to labour in peace using your active birth skills & surge breathing. I was so silent between surges & made a big effort to relax my jaw during surges. I got in the bath around 1.30 am & by that point my body was involuntary pushing. His head was completely out for a couple of minutes between surges in the bath & his eyes were wide open looking around in the water.
I can't even explain the absolute rush that I felt as the rest of his body came out & I lifted him onto my chest born at 2.26 am.
We had uninterrupted skin to skin for a couple of hours before any checks were done, he latched 20 minutes after birth & was so alert & incredibly calm. I put that down to how your program really kept me so relaxed through my pregnancy. Discharged with a perfectly healthy & happy baby 6 hours later.
Carrie thank you so much for sharing your program with us. After such a traumatic first birth, this was such a healing experience. I sing your praises to everyone I can! I am still on a high from the entire experience.
Thank you again so very much.
All of love
Katelyn & Tav x
