"I was able to follow my birth plan and have a natural birth, with the aid of some techniques you demonstrated to the class. I was in active labour for 3 hours, and experienced only minor 2nd degree tearing, which has pretty much healed already.
All in all it was a really beautiful experience. A hell of a lot more emotionally pulling than I expected, and incredibly hard to describe in words, but beautiful.
I just wanted to send this as a little thank you message to you for your brilliant class, I most definitely found that it helped and would not have had such a positive experience with the birth without your tutelage.
Also, without your class I never would have found out about the student midwife programme, which was such a relief. Mine ended up delivering my boy and being a really incredible support during the birth, but also the pregnancy and even now.
Thank you again for your help, and all the best!
