I found Bron when I was half way through my pregnancy as a first time mum and was seeking her support for my partner at our birth and she gave him the confidence to go beyond what we ever imagined he would be involved in the birth of our baby girl and she supported me through the most powerful birthing experience I could ask for.
We had done Calm Birth (Karen from Fit For Birth) so knew Bron would complete our birth team perfectly. She went above and beyond through my pregnancy connecting with us on a level where we were just so excited to share our birth day with her. She made me feel confident, empowered and excited for the birth of our first baby.
I get so excited telling our birth story and how amazing Bron was. My due date was getting close and I would talk to Bron most days just telling her how I was feeling and checking in and it was so reassuring to have her advice and guidance during this time. My birth day had arrived and its one of my happiest days yet. My entire labour was 8hrs in total from first contractions to holding my baby girl in my arms. I felt calm and relaxed labouring at home through most of my labour with Bron there for support and advising us when the time was right to make our way to hospital. It was reassuring knowing Bron was there to guide us to the hospital and to our birth suite, liaising with hospital staff, respected my birth plan and letting me stay focused and in the zone.
I was able to have a drug and intervention free labour and birth that I had wished for and Bron gave my partner the confidence to get involved in the delivery of our baby girl which is the proudest moment of his life. Bron captured the most amazing images of the moments during my birth that I didn't get to see and to be able to look back on these memories are priceless..
Bron stayed with us until we checked into maternity suite, made sure we had been fed, had ice and heat packs, made my partners bed up and got us settled in before leaving. She also visited the next night to drop off my encapsulated placenta and debrief on our birth or anything we needed to discuss which was amazing.
If you are wanting to experience a positive and empowering birth like we did we would recommend having Bron as your Doula. Thank you Bron for empowering us to have the calm birth that we wanted and going above and beyond all our expectations.
