Emma & Andrews experience of Active Birth Workshop 2015
You had clearly put a lot of time and effort into making it a really valuable learning experience for us. We both feel really positive and excited about the forthcoming birth of our baby and we feel more relaxed about it and more prepared to work well together in labour. This is as a direct result of your workshop.
"We loved the 'hands on' element of the workshop-practising breathing together,the visualisation exercise,showing how to massage and practising different positions to get into"
Emma & Andrew
I had my son at 13:09 on 19th may, he surprised me by arriving early in the end! My waters broke on 17th but labour didn't start on its own. I had an induction with epidural and ventouse help at the end as he got a bit distressed. I'm still v proud to have pushed him out and I'm the only one of my friends who's had a baby over 40 who has delivered vaginally.
We had a great 6 hrs at the start of the induction when we used dance, yoga, Buddhist chanting and bubble blowing to manage the pain. Later on I used vocalisation "ah" and squeezing a stress ball and my partner joined in with both.
Thanks v much for the classes Arlene!
Wanted to share that I was blessed with my baby girl on 20th may at 4:23 am.
The whole experience was something I can never forget. It was not just special but also something that made me realize as to how strong a women can be .
All your words & learning from simple breathing techniques to how birthing came naturally to a woman was something I did recall & practice during my labour & birth.
Once my water broke in less than 5 hours I delivered my baby. It was a normal delivery with no tear at all.
The midwives there told me how lucky I was as a first time mom to have such a short labour and that without a tear.
I told them my luck just got stronger with the birth of my baby. Having said that I give it to my active pregnancy, yoga, walks along with my willpower & determination all though that made me go through a short labour & a non complicated birth.
I can't thank you enough for what you taught me but also for the wonderful person that you are.
I booked a Aromatouch session with Arlene because I was feeling very run down, tired and exhausted.
She used 8 doTERRA CPTG essential oils on my back and feet in a technique which makes you feel very calm relaxed and pampered.
I came away feeling refreshed. I could feel the oils working and I slept very well that night. Urzsula 2014
