Hi Gabrielle, I am a new mum of 11 days and just wanted to let you know how much your book, Labour of Love, assisted me in fulfilling my dream of having a natural birth for my first child (a son!)I stumbled across your book in a book shop early in my pregnancy and it immediately empowered me to feel confident about my impending birth experience. Even late in my pregnancy when I started to get the jitters, all I needed to do was refer back to your book to restore my confidence in my ability to birth my child naturally.(Not to mention reciting the birth affirmations that I stuck on the toilet door!) As a result, I gave birth completely naturally to my 3.145kg son on June 14 with the wonderful assistance of the midwives at Galliers Hospital in Armadale. I did not even need stitches!! I just wanted to let you know how much I credit my strength during childbirth to your book – the midwives commented they couldn’t believe I was smiling between contractions! I will certainly be giving your book to any of my friends who become pregnant in the future in the hope that they benefit from it as much as I did.
Assisted me in fulfilling my dream
