happy family after natural birth of babyDear Katherine,

We thought we’d let you know that Meena gave birth to a beautiful baby boy very early this morning.  She started having regular surges from about 10.00 p.m. Thursday night, we made it to the hospital by 12.30 a.m. when Meena was 8cm dilated and she gave birth at 1.18 a.m. Friday morning.

While some of the ease of this birth may be put down to it being Meena’s second, there is no doubt that the hypnobirthing methodology help create a positive environment that made everything so much easier.  We listened to your CD every night as we went to sleep for the past few months and I’d say that put us both in such a positive frame of mind that everything went just as we planned, drug free and short.  On top of that, Meena was at home having lunch by 12.30 p.m. Friday and would have been out sooner if we didn’t have to wait to have the hearing test done.

We can’t thank you enough and, although we had already begun singing your praises before the birth, we will certainly be doing so after!

Thanks again and we hope to catch up with you soon.

Steve, Meena and a yet to be named beautiful boy.

Hi Katherine,

We can’t thankyou enough for giving us the tools to have such a wonderful birthing experience and being able to welcome Benjamin Shyamal James into the world.

There was so much I needed to get through mentally after having Lily and hoped that hypnobirthing would be what I needed, it was exactally that and more!

Both Steve and I enjoyed listening to the CD’s each night, most of the time I was so relaxed I can’t remember the end to any of the CD’s….  I spent a little time each day in the polar bear position and Lily also loved being on the yoga mat with me!

We would be more than happy for you to use our story, and of course we would love to catch up with you very soon, please let us know when you are in Annandale over the next couple of weeks, we would love you to meet Ben.

I hope that you have heard from the other two couples from our classes, they were both due a couple of weeks ago, I would love to hear how they went.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
