Welcome to belly flower,
nurturing you through belly, birth & baby
"Hi Nat, Finally got few minutes to fill you in on how the birth went! So...was due to be induced on the 4th at 7am...but felt funny all day Monday and had mild pains about 10pm. But wasn't sure as I had a false alarm a fortnight before and just thought that's what it was. Slept on and off till 1am where the contractions were about 10min apart...still thinking this may not be it. Sat on a fit ball and rested on the side of the bed from 1am till bout 3ish they were getting closer together and quite strong...nothing like I thought they would be though. Once they hit around 6 min 7 min apart I woke hubby and said I think I had better call hospital. Left home at 4am got to hospital bout 4:30am had contraction in car park, at the door, inside the door, when I greeted nurses in the hall way and when I got to the labour ward. Sort of collapsed on the bed and said to the nurse I need to push.....she said hold on (that's easier said than done). Was fully dilated so began to push and about an hour and a half later out came our little girl. No drugs and only a few stitches only because she put her hand through as her head came out! I felt absolutely fantastic after the birth (that's sounds strange, but I'm sure you can relate!) Had a shower and walked out of the labour room by a bout 7ish. My husband was absolutely amazed...after last time I was wheeled out on a bed after about 5 hours of having our first daughter!
So everything I had learnt from your classes helped and prepared me 100% in having such a fantastic birth experience! So thanks once again.....you may be seeing me in the future if we decide to go for number 3!!"

"Just wanted to affirm that your yoga class was instrumental in making this labour so very different from my first.
I gave birth after only 6 hours of labour - 1 and a half at the hospital and three looooong pushes with deeeeeep breathing.
No drugs at all and went home the next day feeling great. I am very grateful to you for sharing your knowledge and insight.
