A friend told me about her experience using hypnobirthing and having Bron as her Doula. Listening to her birth story I knew I wanted the same thing so when I found out I was pregnant I contacted Bron straight away. There were 3 things that we wanted for the birth of our baby.
1. A labour/birth that was calm and relaxing, where we were not rushed, overwhelmed or stressed.
2. Confidence leading up to labour/birth without fear and
3. A labour/birth where I felt in control of my options and where I could handle the discomfort of labour.
Having Bron involved delivered on all 3 of these. She was always available during pregnancy to answer questions, teach us practical techniques for labour/birth and help us prepare for the big day. I was unable to go into labour naturally (42 weeks) so needed to be induced using more than 1 method and although having to stay in hospital the night prior with no sleep, by having the preparation that Bron taught us and having her there, we were able to have the beautiful, calm labour we always wanted with no drugs. I could handle the discomfort of labour and I am so proud of myself and my husband. He knew exactly how to support me through it all through the teachings that Bron gave us. I ended up needing a caesarean in the end for the birth and I was able to calmly breathe through every contraction from the start of labour to when I was in theatre. No screaming, no feeling like I couldn’t handle it, no fear and no rushing – we felt in control the whole time thanks to Bron. She has made the birth of our first child an amazing one we will never forget. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your amazing support!
