A big thank you to you as on Saturday morning i gave birth at 11.09 to a beautiful baby girl and had the most fantastic birth ever. I believe it's all down to your classes and the extra lesson you gave me installed a new confidence within. Maya Lily was born in the water at the White Horse Birthing centre weighing 7lb 8 oz. I really can't thank you enough as finally I have had the birth I have always wanted. Everything you taught me I remembered in labour, the positions to get in to dilate more, breathing and I listened to the cd 2 and a half times!!!!!!! Did i beat the 2nd stage time? I did it in 8/9 minutes!!!

I am so pleased that I did these classes. I only regret that they weren’t available in our area when I had my first daughter! They not only gave me much needed time to relax and focus on my growing baby, but helped to prepare me for a labour that I was very anxious about. My birth was definitely made easier using the techniques I had learnt and I am now taking part in the Baby classes! The biggest thing for me was feeling confident that I could have a natural birth with no assistance and that my baby would be passed straight to me (my first baby went straight to the neo-natal unit and I couldn’t hold her for some time). I used positive affirmations throughout and knew that my body was perfectly capable of having a baby. Tori was always friendly and light-hearted, while making sure we were all as comfortable and relaxed as possible. I really felt that she genuinely cared about each of our different needs and took time to ensure we all got the best from the class.

Since the first class I knew that I would attend them for as long as I could. I found them very relaxing and believed that I am able to control my body and lead it to the right direction during labour. The classes gave me confidence and strength and loads of practice in breathing and proper moves for each stage of the labour. I can proudly say that "My birth was easy", I was in different space and the music helped me to stay there. I knew exactly what to do and how to cope with contractions. I stayed calm and focused untill the very end and yes - I did remember how to breathe - as it was my constant worry :). I delivered my baby girl safely in the birthing pool within several hours and did not need any pain killers, just my husband presence. It was the best thing I have ever done and definitely could not do it without classes and Tori - my teacher, who presented them so well, I can not praise you enough. We will never forget the excitement and happiness we felt when we first met our beautiful daughter!

Thank you to Tori for giving me the positive birth experience that I was hoping for. The classes allowed me to take precious time out, in a very relaxed setting, to focus on myself and my growing baby. The classes have some easy practical advice that were tremendously helpful during my labour. The breathing techniques allowed me to labour without any pain relief. My beautiful daughter was born in a calm setting and the music used in the class and during the birth continues to soothe her to sleep now.
