This was really a last minute opportunity that we decided to take recommended by our doula Sam. Four courses over two weeks to hopefully have a calm and natural birth.
We met our teacher Sarah on that evening in Saffron Walden at her home, with three other couples, she baked very nice cakes and during three hours she talked passionately about giving birth naturally using hypnosis and deep relaxation techniques.
We finally found someone who really shares similar view on birthing as us that surely will help us to overcome the negative thoughts of the NHS people we met so far.
To secure our success, we will have to do our homework… We got a CD to listen everyday with the Rainbow relaxation and Affirmation, and a book to read. Over the coming weeks, I will listen to the Affirmation track in the car while going to work and doing my pelvic floor exercises. I will listen to the Rainbow relaxation hopefully before going to bed…
