Steph Lauren’s Birth Story

Hi Ann,

I hope you’re well. So pleased that you’re able to reopen today! I’m sorry I’ve been a bit quiet recently, but I’m afraid I won’t be able to attend your pregnancy classes anymore – Baby Oliver made his appearance on friday 27th!

Born with no issues at home in the pool just as I had dreamt of. Just wanted to message to thank you for all of your words of advice over the weeks leading up to his birth. For three long nights before his delivery I was having false labour pains (some worse than the real thing!) And was able to use loads of the breathing and ball techniques I’d learned with you to help manage the pain.

In the end, my active labour was only 4 hours long! The 3 midwives all commented that for a first timer this must mean baby was in the perfect position and I put a lot of that down to the techniques I learned with you.
He weighed 8lb6. The three of us are doing well and learning quickly.

Take care xxx

Best of luck with the reopening and hopefully I’ll see you again for another yoga session xx
