How are you?
I just wanted to touch base and let you know that we had a beautiful baby girl! Thank you for everything that you taught us it made such a difference and we had a perfect birth!! Her name is Aaliyah Grace, born 7 pound 9 on Saturday the 26th October at 8:07 pm
Labour started at 1am Saturday morning nothing too serious surges about 10 mins apart just enough to keep me awake. At about 8 am they stretched out to about half an hour or so until 2pm when they became stronger and I got into the zone. I was still laughing and having fun with our son Kai at 5pm ” so much more relaxed then I thought I would be! At 7pm I was a little unsure whether to go to the hospital or not but surges were about 3 mins apart so we decided to leave as I wanted a water birth and the bath takes an hour to fill. We made it to the birth centre in time for me to have a surge in the car park, one in the elevator, one in the hallway, one by the bed in the room and one on the toilet. I didn’t want to say that I thought the baby was coming just in case I was wrong so I thought maybe I just needed to go to the toilet as soon as a sat down my waters broke which is when I had the surge on the toilet then I stood up as soon as it had finished and I felt a big pressure and she was born! Just in time for Brendon to catch her she was nearly born in the toilet and I not once had to push! No tearing or grazes and a healthy mummy and baby ” I feel amazing. Brendon did such a great job he remembered everything that he had to he joked that she knew I wanted a water birth and saw the water in the toilet and thought that was her cue haha.
Thank you again, I have a few pregnant friends and I will be definitely recommending your course!
Lots of love xxxxxxxxxxxx
