“Learning Birth Without Fear techniques with Emilie was the single most important thing I did during my pregnancy to prepare. Following a complicated pregnancy and then facing child birth during the corona virus pandemic, what could have been a very scary and chaotic experience actually turned out to be something I felt completely in control of. I’ve never been good with pain, so had you asked me nine months ago how I thought my birthing experience would go, I would have said I’d expected it to be terrifying. But with the techniques Emilie showed us, particularly with the power of the breath, I felt so in control. I particularly liked the emphasis that was placed on the role of the birth partner. It meant that my partner Ed knew exactly what I wanted without me having to ask for it (which during labour, would have been quite difficult to vocalise) and it just felt like we really were working in sync. He used slow, steady, deep sounds and actions to lull me into a state of complete focus. I can genuinely say that because of the Birth Without Fear approach, my experience of child birth was extraordinary and it brings a smile to my face every time I think of it. Plus, now that I’ve entered motherhood, every time that I feel slightly daunted or overwhelmed by a new challenge, I remember how I conquered my fear of labour and I instantly start using the techniques to get me through the next hurdle…so it really is the gift that keeps on giving!” Jess, June 2020.
