“At the start of 2014 I met you at a positive birth meet, the following month I met you again and as I left that day I knew that if the doula we had for our first pregnancy was not available, you would be perfect choice for our second pregnancy. As faith had it, you were the lady for the job. We met again at the end of May. Scott and I both had an instant connection and our birth journey with you began.
Our private hypnobirthing sessions were completed in the comfort of our home and you were so flexible with Myles, making it all the more enjoyable. Both Scott and I felt so relaxed and at ease in your presence, able to say and do whatever we needed. The education you gave us was invaluable, while also empowering on so many levels for both Scott and I.
You made yourself available whenever I had a question and we really felt like you valued us, helping to build the trust we needed in our birth environment. Our precious little angel Alyssa came sooner than expected, the night we were due to have our last hypnobirthing session, which had been cancelled as Scott and I had caught a cold a few days earlier and needed rest. Your presence at Alyssa’s birth was the support that both Scott and I both needed, a gentle reassuring voice that kept us moving in the right direction. Your bubbly smile and calm nature was just perfect for the birthing environment we had created. Some 6 and a half hours later, Alyssa was born in the water, in the comfort of our home.
When I think back to my labour and how you helped I remember laughing together, your light touch massage (and firmer massage that always seemed to come at just the right time), you reminding me to breath the two times I got off track, you pouring warm water over my back when I got into the birth pool (the most incredible feeling ever), you holding my hands when I had my needles before getting my stitches and seeing you clean out the birth pool afterwards. And after that beautiful night you were still in contact every couple of days to see how things were going and to answer more of my questions.
Your role in Alyssa’s birth was so valuable, more than words could really express. We were so blessed to have met you and been able to share our birth journey with you. The birthing mummas of Perth are so lucky to have you in their community. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
