We wanted to say thank you so much for the course. Having Ellie in lockdown certainly left me with a lot of anxiety with our second pregnancy. Your course really helped make the birth a completely different experience to our first birth even though that wasn’t traumatic just didn’t feel prepared with what was about to happen. Despite learning the biology facts from the NCT course. Your course taught both me and James how to breathe and figure out what we wanted calmly.
We safely and very quickly welcomed Frankie Rose on the 22nd June. She was 3 days past her due date and we stuck with our decision of no sweep and that afternoon /early evening contractions started but I was able to breath through them and have dinner with Ellie, and James was able to get her to bed while I breathed through them and got nanna over to look after Ellie. By the time we got to the hospital and got checked I was 5-6cm dilated, then we moved to the labour suite and we where really lucky to get the same room Ellie was born in too. Within the hour Frankie was born and as it was so fast I just about managed to get a water birth and only used a small amount of gas and air after she had crowned.
Thank you so much for easing my anxiety and teaching us the skills to keep calm and controlled.
