Ellen and I want to introduce you to Emilia Mae, born Wednesday morning! Ellen and baby are both healthy and happy. The birth itself went very well…it happened quickly as she was a few days late and Ellen was able to get through without any medication! Your guidance was invaluable – without your help in learning our coping techniques it could have been a much different experience. The pressure techniques and tennis balls in a sock were a must, but even more important were the education and affirmations about the process that helped us make the right decisions along the way.
Thank you again for all the help you gave us, it certainly led to a confident childbirth!
