Hi Louise,

Just wanted to let you know that we welcomed our beautiful little girl, Nia into the world.
I saw my midwife for my planned visit and she thought I was experiencing surges but said not to get excited as it could be days before things got really going. By now surges were every 7 minutes. Went home and set up room with lights, played my wise hippo tracks and found forward leaning to be very relaxing. The breathing techniques got me through and I took 2 Paracetamol. We got to Luton and Dunstable by 9 and after being checked found I had preeclampsia so went over to consultant ward (I had been hoping for a water birth) I was fully dilated and ready to go- our daughter arrived within an hour and a half!
It wasn’t the birth we envisaged but it was the right birth on the day and we felt we knew the questions we needed to ask.
Thank you so much, I felt totally relaxed throughout my final weeks of pregnancy and even though my surges were very strong towards the end (I believe I crawled up the corridor at the hospital!) I felt I was still in control when breathing through them. Mark was absolutely amazing and I could not have done it without him!

I will be recommending the wise hippo birthing program to everyone!

Message from dad Mark,

“Hi Louise, just thought I’d let you know that Clare delivered a gorgeous little girl at 10.30. She used the hypnobirthing techniques. By the time we got to the hospital she already fully dilated. All happened very quickly. Got to hospital at 8 so was a big surprise to be told that were ready to push. Didn’t even have a chance to set up the room or get the bags in from the car!”

Lots of love Clare, Mark & Nia Xxx
