I had a beautiful birth, such a wonderful memory and I know the majority of that was due to your teaching and support. I had only one paracetamol and a relatively short birth, after which was amazing. I used your tips and ensured I followed my bodies lead. The home practice mp3’s worked wonders in helping me get into my own birth zone. Thank you Jayne’
