Birth Stories No. 18: Gulya’s Active Birth

I gave birth to our daughter Cassandra on a Monday evening at the Whittington Birth Centre in October. Unlike our expectations of a ‘likely’ arrival post-EDD, Cassie arrived in week 39. Three days before Cassie’s birth, on Friday, I had my second reflexology session with Sophia Smith at the Active Birth Centre, which was wonderfully

Birth Story no. 16: Laura’s Hypnobirth

I gave birth to Henry on 2nd April at the birth centre at the Whittington, two days after my due date and 5 days before I’d been told I had to be induced (as they thought he was too small). He was born a very healthy 7lbs 3oz, and is absolutely perfect. The birth experience

I just wanted to let you know that we had a beautiful little girl on Friday night! She was a very HEALTHY 6.6lbs (!) and we managed to have an absolutely incredible home birth as planned despite a couple of difficulties along the way! We both want to say a huge thank you as we

Birth Stories No. 9: Natalie’s Active Water Birth

I wanted to thank you [Janet] for being such an amazing source of inspiration and insight over the last few months. Coming to your Tuesday evening pregnancy yoga class has been a complete treat and I am going to sorely miss you, your pelvis and woollen baby and placenta – and of course the girls.
