Sofia’s Birth – Preparing the body, mind and spirit

Dear Nadine,

I just wanted to thank you with all my heart in front of the ladies that were at the She Births course with me that your course in conjunction with your meditations, your yoga classes and following the Dr Mowri Gotha Ayurvedic program prepared me for the greatest experience of my life!

By no means did I have an ‘orgasmic birth’ like the video we watched but it certainly was a blissful and gentle one. I channelled almost every word of your visualisations and I was amazed how much I remembered right down to using the ‘J’ breath when I was in my second stage. Throughout labour and the birth I set myself the mantra, ‘trust your body, you can do it’ and said it to myself for the entire 6 hours of the birthing from leaving home, in the car to the actually delivery.

Sofia and I had a 6 hr labour, no drugs (just the tens machine to help at home) and no stitches. I felt so empowered and proud of myself after my delivery that I felt like if I can do this, I can do anything.

It truly goes to show that if you prepare your body, mind and spirit the fear melts away and you can do it just like all the zillions of other women who have given birth before us, just like you said Nadine!

Enzo and I are over the moon and we have been blessed with a wonderfully calm baby.

I wish you all the best with your births and hope to see you soon with your new additions.

Lots of love and light, Andreina + Sofia
