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"

I'm very happy to let you know that Tabitha Ruby Bell was born on Saturday 13th December at 10.42am weighing 7.5lb and with lots of dark hair! She is utterly gorgeous and we can't stop staring at her!!
One of the midwives told Paul during labour that I was doing really well and that I must have been very well mentally prepared! I think I can put that down to your classes and all the visualisation/relaxation techniques that must have kicked in when I couldn't physically have the active birth I wanted.
So I just wanted to thank you for all your support and openness during the last few months, which I'm sure has resulted in this very chilled out gorgeous little thing snoozing on me now!
I wanted to say thanks for the classes, not only was the movement and breathing and relaxation hugely helpful to learn, also for the mental empowerment that women's bodies are made to do it and to trust them. Your doula story of how the lady stopped dilating on an environment of medical pressure encouraged me
to manage and enjoy as much of
Labour as I could at home, and also influenced me to chose a birthing centre and water pool. Also thanks to Jodie - if she hadn't mentioned the Barking birth centre in class
I wouldn't have been aware of it.
I hope she gets as wonderful experience in her second labour as I did.
Lots of love,
baby Hayder 7lbs 7.5oz born 2nd November 2014
"I had another cesarean section. But I feel more in control and have been able to breastfeed this baby more easily this time round. I am so grateful for that time to prepare for this birth, and all the work we did previously with breastfeeding has made this second experience so much easier" Kate, August 2015
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
