New Mom Reports


We labored at home for six intense hours, went to the hos­pi­tal, and he was born forty min­utes lat­er. J did such a good job coach­ing the doc­tor asked, “Have you tak­en a birth prepa­ra­tion class?” We got a lot out of your class — thanks a mil­lion!!” — A, J & E

We both feel we had a beau­ti­ful birth sto­ry that was made up of well edu­cat­ed deci­sions.  From the entire birth team, even though it was not at all what we had envi­sioned. Thanks Ann for your instruc­tion and class that equipped us for such suc­cess!” — O.A .& S.Q.

We’re hap­py to report our baby was born on Sat­ur­day at 12:31 am…our exer­cise class­es were ESSENTIAL in the lat­er part of labor — the doc­tor and nurse described me as a “nat­ural” at push­ing, but I had to admit I’d been prac­tic­ing my c-curves twice a week!” — G.S.

We arrived at the hos­pi­tal at 8pm on Fri­day and I was 6 cm dilated…I deliv­ered by 1 am with­out pain meds.  It was an amaz­ing expe­ri­ence. You real­ly do focus inward.  I found sit­ting in the show­er hold­ing the sprayer to be help­ful.  Def­i­nitely try dif­fer­ent posi­tions.  I used the bar for when it can time to push.  Just know that there is an end in sight and just hold­ing your baby at the end is the most won­der­ful, amaz­ing feel­ing in the world!”  — P.E.
