"Hey Wendy, just wanted to say a huge thank you from Peet and myself for your help and support with the hypnobirthing. My contractions started at around 9am on Sat morning and baby Margot was
finally born at 1:26am this morning... Which is a long, long time!
But the breathing techniques and visualisations as well as the relaxation tracks (we had them on the background) all really helped me to stay focused and calm. And the birthing affirmations really helped as well - at the pushing stage, which by that point I was absolutely shattered and finding it hard, remembering that I was designed to expand and birth the baby and that the baby was the right size for me, that was invaluable!
So thanks again. I think it really made it such a positive experience, filled with calmness and control. And that's real evident in how serene and alert Margot is!
One last thing: I forgot to mention how helpful Peet found the guide for dad's you included in the folder. He referred to it often and it really helped him to know what to do.
He said he found the hypnobirthing course made him feel like he could really practically help someone in labour - and he was an amazing support for me during the whole thing as a result."
