I love a good birth story, and this one from my client Katie is a beauty. Katie had had two previous inductions and believed hat er body would never go in spontaneous labour. She had also had a very challeging time with her second baby arrival. Anxiety was high as she fast approached her due date with number baby number 3.
Katie dtatrted working with me just 6 weeks before her due date, she took my Birth Preparation for Overly Anxious Minds course and had the positive birth experience she had hoped for.

Hi Sarah,I hope your well!Our little Beatrix (9lbs 12oz) was born on Monday at 23.46 after going into hospital following waters breaking earlier that same same day at 3am.As you know my main desire was to avoid another induction as first 2 babies both went 14 days over so inducted were large as result and second pregnancy resulted in PPH both these factors made me very scared,terrified and extremely anxious as didn't want repeat similar experiences.Had been booked for a c section on 21st ( yesterday ) 12 days post dd, but am delighted and thrilled to say my body went Into spontaneous labour at 41+3 something which I'd convinced myself I was incapable of doing.Your course made me feel positive and helped me to prepare but most of all believe that no 2 birth experiences are the same which gave me huge comfort. Also that we can take back control to give us the confidence and empowerment to have a positive birth and that these do really exist. This experience could honestly not have been better and I feel that I'm beginning my next motherhood journey in a much stronger place both mentally and physically.I struggled with breast feeding with babies 1and2 but the course has again given me confidence to believe I can do it and again is a different experience, the breast feeding video and info was huge help and so far it's going very well!Breathing through contractions, was a big help and definititly helped me ease the discomfort. I won't lie I wasn't able to have positive affirmation after positive affirmation, when contractions came thick and fast although believing my body has all it needs to cope and to get through and every contraction gets me closer were a big help. I still remember saying I felt scared at one point, but all in all, everything came together.I'm so delighted and just wanted to say the biggest thanks! So pleased I stumbled across you and this course, and would certainly recommend.Thank you so very much!Katie and Beatrix! This picture is as she was handed to me, after delivery she's still attached . Xxxxxx
