Our little guy Ari James is going so great with sleeping and feeding and we are absolutely smitten with him. I was induced 13 days early due to a pregnancy complication called Hellp Syndrome.
I can’t thank you enough Karen for the tools I learned in Calmbirth. They were vital in my labour and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
Mikaela and James
James and I had a baby girl on the 21st. It was a 6 hour labour. I ended up birthing her at home in the water at 9:46am. She was 8lb 7oz and 55cm long. The birth was amazing!
She is feeding really well and has already gained back her birth weight. Sleeps like a dream baby too. Thanks for everything!
We welcomed our little girl Ariya Leigh (pronounced a-rye-a) into the world 9pm on Monday night, about 4 days early! I had a feeling she might come early after I had an acupuncture treatment with Nadja on the Thursday… She mentioned that my pulse signaled some letting go and she wouldn’t be far off and that night I started losing my mucus plug…
Megan and Leroy
I have been home for week after giving birth to our little girl Tarala Violet on due date Monday the 12th October. My husband Leroy and I had an amazing birth experience and would love to share it with you all. Two days leading up to the birth I was experiencing some abdominal and lower back pain which I ignored as I had such an easy pregnancy…
The moment you were conceived as a female, your body-mind contained all the instructions it needed to know how to conceive, give birth to and nourish your baby.
Soften, open, relax, let go.
You are a strong birthing woman.
Every time you practice relaxation you produce calming, feel-good hormones. They flow via your bloodstream through your body, making you feel good. They also flow through your placenta, through the umbilical cord into your baby, teaching your baby how to be calm and peaceful. We all want a calm baby!
Always, always come back to your breath. In, and out. Soft and gentle.
Choose how you want to respond to every situation rather than reacting without thought. There’s always a moment before you act where you have a choice – how will I act now?
Just as your body knows how to conceive your baby and grow your baby, it knows how to birth your baby. It wouldn’t go to all the effort to grow your baby then not know how to get the baby out.
Your pelvis stretches open and the baby’s head moulds to become smaller. That’s how the baby fits through the birth canal.
Soft shoulders, soft face, soft jaw, soft pelvis.
Send a smile to your baby. Smiling produces feel-good hormones.
