max born at buderim hospital, 17 June 2015
Sorry it's taken me so long to get in touch with you although I'm sure you can imagine how crazy the first few weeks are with a new Bub!! Joel and I would like to introduce to you the newest member of our little family!! Max Murray was born on 17 June at 7.00 am weighing 8 lbs 2 and 51.5 cm long.
We are overjoyed both with the journey and the end result. Our labour was exhausting (mentally and physically) and I don't think I could have ever been fully prepared but with a combo of your pregnancy yoga and our hypnobirthing training... Joel and I feel so incredibly proud of ourselves and how we handled the labour and birthplace of our little man.
I went into labour on the 16th around 7.00 pm and was in hospital by 1:30 am. The next few hours were a blur as I sank into the "zone" and Joel supported me through what was the most challenging thing I've ever experienced. But Max was born naturally (no drugs, nothing!!) and in water.
He was so calm and relaxed and is still very much a chilled out bubba. We want to thank you for your wisdom and support which I believe set both Joel and I up to be fully empowered and in the most control possible throughout the process.
I can say with certainty that my labour and birth was incredibly smooth because of the preparation and knowledge that I had thanks to Carrie. Hypnobirthing helped me have a calm, gentle birth that was short and as comfortable as birthing can be!! I am looking forward to the experience for our second child (in the future)!
We can't wait for you to meet our little guy!
