I got my VBAC

Hey Kat!!!! Steve and I attended your Calmbirth course on 19/20 June in the Southern Highlands…just wanted to let you know we had a SUCCESSFUL VBAC!!!! on the 2nd of July and we welcomed a little girl – Alana Mae – a healthy 3.1kg.

I had 1 1/2 days of latent labour, and utilised a lot of Calmbirth techniques…I got to early hours on the Friday and contacted my midi and she suggested staying at home as I didn’t sound too close, but within an hour I called again as I started to panic (forgot all my Calmbirth techniques!! Lol).

The Calm birth of Alexander

I cannot thank you enough as I believe attending your Calmbirth course and the support we got from the mpg program, were the reason to why we had such an amazing birth story.

Postpartum Bleeding – What to Expect

Vaginal bleeding (known as Lochia) is a normal part of giving birth, whether you have a vaginal birth or a Caesarean section birth. Lochia is made up of tissue, blood and mucous.

The bleeding is due to the placenta detaching from the wall of the uterus (after the birth of baby), where it was held in place by blood vessels that ran between the uterus and placenta. This leaves the blood vessels open, which causes the bleeding, whilst the uterus works hard to clamp them shut post birth and renew the lining of the uterus.

Right by my side

Around this time 4 years ago my waters broke so I thought I’d share with you all the story of my 3rd birth

The image was taken maybe a day or so before I went into labour, but I have always loved this photo as it reminds me of the nights my little girl stayed close by me until her brother arrived safely.
