Once again, I have found your program amazingly helpful in achieving my dream birth. This time, however, I have in particular found myself surprised by my own calm state after the birth with limited sleep under my belt. Recently, I have had an interesting couple of weeks with my baby, who has been hungry but reluctant to take a bottle or solids. This has been particularly stressful for me, having not been faced with such a situation before, but I have found myself calm and cool-headed not only with the baby but with the rest of the family.
To start from the start … My waters broke about 10 p.m.. I rang the hospital and went to bed. In the morning, I had breakfast, shower, cup of tea, then headed off to hospital at 9am. As is on cue, upon presentation at the maternity unit, things started to happen. I made myself comfortable and my partner and I read magazines and joked around for the next 1 ½ hrs. Then it was time to get down to the business of having a baby. Although I will admit it is hard work, our baby arrived at 12 noon. The words I would use to describe the last 1 ½ hrs would be calm and controlled. The birth was the best I have had.
Once again, we have a success story with both a calm birth and calm mother of 4. I really believe in your program and think the world would be a better place if everyone had a little bit of calmbirth® in their life!Yvette
