Just to let you know, Little Sophia was born at 5.32am 1st July weighing a healthy 7lb2oz. I had the totally natural, drug free labour and birth I hoped for and the only pain management I used was the breathing techniques taught to us in class. They enabled me to stay calm and collected enough to just follow what my body was telling me to do.
I managed my contractions at home by moving around on the ball and lots of hip rotations on all fours. When I felt I was losing control a bit I just remembered what you always say about ratio breathing, I was counting in for 4 and out for 8 and it just zoned me back in and really kept me going.
Thank you for passing on the valuable skills that had such a positive impact on my pregnancy and delivery journey. I will definitely be back to take part in some of your other classes! Wish all the girls the best of luck,
thank you again and I’ll see you soon, Lauren xxx
