“I had a wonderful water birth for Abigail. I distinctly remembered your words about sending love to the baby which I did during the peak of the intensity (only 14 minutes second stage) and this really helped me with the emotional side. I was emotionally much more ready to welcome my baby than in my first labour thanks to this. I sort of heard your voice at that point and earlier on with helping to dilate the cervix.
I was really pleased with my labour, definitely a positive experience and I managed without any pain relief. Did tear a bit but did not feel it and it was not tender afterwards… It was all so much calmer than my first labour.”
