Just thought I’d let you know that our little Magnolia is here (Maggie!). My birth was an absolute dream thanks to all the Calmbirth practices. I was completely in the zone, meditating for 9 hours straight. I was swaying and moving around on my fit ball, in the shower and it was a very quiet, environment – no screaming, no fuss just pure focus on getting her here. I breathed, breathed and breathed. I had a little help from a tens machine and the hot shower, but no pain relief.
At one point Rehana had the theatre booked for C-section as Bub looked like she wouldn’t engage but I just worked on getting her down and before we knew it she was engaged and I was progressing! I had the birth I dreamed of and I know that’s because of all the wisdom you passed onto us, Ned especially found it a huge benefit as a birth partner.
Here are some pictures of Maggie, thank you soooo much again!!
