Before I did the workshop I felt scared and I didn’t really know what to expect. I wasn’t sure how does the labor work, what was exactly going to happen to me and my body. I had heard lots of terrifying stories from people and from internet and that made me even more anxious and unsure. I knew about some pain relief methods and some medical procedures might be performed but not enough to make empowered decisions.

Now I understand every stage of giving birth. How it looks like, what causes it, how long it might take and what to do to help myself through it.

I also realize how important the emotional and psychological support is. Labour is not just a physical process and our state of mind and emotional wellbeing have an enormous impact on the birthing process.

And I really understand that Gravity and being active are my best friends during birth.

Overall I thought the Complete Birth Workshop was informative and interactive. There was a relaxed atmosphere and Eleanor is an amazing teacher!

I now feel empowered and full of positive energy.

I know now birth is not as terrifying as I thought before, and me and my partner can have a huge impact on what my experience will be like.

There is a lot I can do to improve my birth and now I actually can’t wait to do it already:-)

I know it is not going to be easy or pleasant but it will be one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
