I had an amazing birth experience and would love to share it with you all.

Natalie & Ryan Fit for Birth Testimonial

Natalie and Ryan

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.

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…

Our little bundle Meila Scarlett has decided to join us on the outside. After researching we decided we needed a doula to help us on our journey this time around, and we found the beautiful Nadja! I had felt contractions from 1am but since I had been having strong Braxton Hicks throughout my pregnancy I decided to just wait and see how things would pan out.

Kellee and Jon

When Jon and I found out we were pregnant, I knew I wanted to prepare myself for the birth.  A year prior, I had had emergency surgery for an ectopic pregnancy and this experience alone was the most traumatic event I had encountered in my adult life.  I visited three hospitals with very little assurance as to what was “wrong” with me, and why I was experiencing abdominal pain.

Nichaela

My first contraction was around 6 o’clock and then as I made Nixon’s dinner had a couple more and felt they had a little more intensity than the Braxton Hicks I had been experiencing. Trev arrived home and I thought a shower would help determine if they were the real thing. They got more intense in the shower. By this time I started getting some things together as I felt it was the real thing…

Despite spending 9 months researching every facet of natural childbirth and doing my best to be as prepared as possible (through reading, weekly yoga and attending the Calmbirth course) when the time came absolutely nothing went according to plan!

I was just looking at all the very anxious scared looking women in the group `{`hospital active birth class`}` thinking poor buggers..if only they could’ve been exposed to Calmbirth. One girl came up at the end to ask where we did the course because she said she couldn’t believe how relaxed we were! – Anna
