I just wanted to let you know that I birthed my baby boy on Tuesday morning - drug free and found the hips squeezing exercise absolutely amazing during labour.  Thanks for showing it to us in class.
Dear Erika, On the 18th of April Darren and I welcomed our beautiful healthy baby boy into the world.  Labour was very long but I ended up having a uncomplicated natural birth with minimal tearing and I believe that the skills we learned at the workshop most definitely assisted with this. While at times I doubted myself and found myself overwhelmed with the pain we managed to use some of the techniques we learned, and more importantly I was able to trust my body and its ability to birth my baby.  Darren was also an amazing support throughout the whole process.  He had gained invaluable skills from the workshop to support me in the best possible way. We were left with a sense of accomplishment and pride and joy. I just wanted to thank you for passing on your knowledge, wisdom and encouragement with great warmth and enthusiasm during those two days - invaluable and I am so grateful we signed up.
