I came to Tracey and her Calmbirth course in my fourth pregnancy and as a midwife. So as far as birthing goes, I know the drill but wanted to try something new! After 3 previous inductions where I did NOT feel in control and could not take my "midwife hat" off I felt I had not been able to say I enjoyed any of my births and I wanted my last baby to be different.
Ideally I wanted to avoid induction but also knew it was a high possibility for me and I wanted to learn ways in which to just 'BE' and let my body take over without overthinking it all (my biggest issue). I also had used pain relief (gas, morphine and epidural) for ALL of my first 3 and really loved the idea of not doing this 4th time around.
Fast forward to the birth of my final baby, my wee boy. Yes another induction, but NO pain relief apart from some gas, and a completely different birth. I focused NOT on the midwife side of things, I let my beautiful midwife do her thing while I just focused on my own body and my baby. The birth went super fast and pear shaped but in a space where I could have easily completely lost it - I held it together.
I trusted my midwife and medical team and I trusted my body and my baby. This can only come down to Tracey and her techniques. She instilled in me, more than ever before, that I COULD do it. Even knowing as a midwife how it all works (I see it every day), I had not been able to get to a point with my first 3 in where I could relax and let things happen. Thank you Tracey so much. My final birth was the one I was waiting for. My body did it and I was able to be in the moment and STOP thinking. I highly recommend this course to anyone! You will not be disappointed.
