Sweet little Oliver.

Hi Annie,

Just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know we have had a little boy, called Oliver. He was born at 3.10 am on Tuesday 2nd July and both Amy and Oliver are doing brilliantly.

Amy wanted me to let you know that the hypnobirthing worked amazingly. Amy was in labour for only 5 hours, 40 mins. Amy spent 4 hours at home using her relaxation and breathing techniques, all of which went really well. She especially found that humming during her surges helped greatly.

When we arrive at the hospital 20 mins later, the midwife was amazed to find that Amy was fully dilated and an hour later we had our little miracle.

Amy managed the whole labour without any form of pain relief and truly believes that this is all down to your sessions.

Oliver was born alert and responsive, scoring 10/10 on the apgar test and ever since he has been calm and relaxed.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you again for giving Amy, Oliver and I such a lovely start to our little family and we very much look forward to seeing you again at the coffee morning.

Many thanks Laurence, Amy and Oliver

And my reply?

Thank you so much for your beautiful e.mail. My heart sang and did a little
dance when I read it!! And then I smiled when I read what the midwives had
said!! I am over the moon for you all that you had your perfect birth.It has been
all down to you guys for committing and practising all the hypnobirthing
techniques-all I do is show you how. You should be so PROUD of yourselves.Anniexx
