I am 35 weeks pregnant with our first child. A friend of mine referred me to Marie as I was experience lots of fears and anxieties about the impending labour and delivery of my baby.
I was frightened that I wasn’t going to be strong enough or able to cope with the pain. I was, oh so focussed on the pain. I was fearful that something would go wrong or the pain would be too immense. I had other fears I won’t mention. This blocked me from seeing anything positive about the labour and deliver. (I was excited about the end result). My mind however was blocked in a fog of fear and negative thoughts. I felt like I couldn’t help it!
So upon the recommendations of other local women and friends I made my first appointment to see Marie. I must be honest, I did make this appointment with not much hope as I was also feeling ashamed of admitting these fears and thoughts (particular ones I won’t mention) especially to a mother. I feared I might be judged as being silly or childish. Nope, I was wrong.
Marie is so welcoming, loving and warm. I felt so comfortable and relaxed with her. I truly admired and loved her genuinity, compassion and invested interest in my story, in my pregnancy and all the external factors.
Over our first three sessions I was amazed at the journey Marie took me on in discovering the origin of my fears, validate and then, with kindness, release these fears of mine. Oh my, what a heavy weight I had been carrying. I can’t explain the release and the relief of that being lifted. I no longer felt these fears.
Soon everything started making sense. I never knew that I didn’t fully understand myself…until Marie helped me learn how to understand myself…if that makes sense.
Marie guided me in learning how to identify my fears and explore how these fears (that I was unaware of) were blocking me. She then guided me on how to forgive, love and respect myself.
You know that saying “give yourself a break”? Well I learned how to give myself a break. I could then embrace my pregnancy so much more. Marie’s coaching allowed me to enjoy my pregnancy without fear through coaching, discovery, preparation, non-judgement, understanding and sharing her own life and birth experiences.
I now feel excited for my upcoming birthing experience. I look forward to practising the great breathing techniques and visualisations that Marie taught me. I have such a positive attitude now. I no longer hold any strong fears towards the labour and delivery of my beautiful baby.
Marie helped me to realise, that through releasing fear, I can and will have a wonderful birth.
No matter what your fears or anxieties are or whatever is blocking you from having a truly positive attitude towards the birth of your baby, please trust me when I tell you that Marie will help you.
Thank you dearly lovely Marie for giving me the best gift anyone could give me in pregnancy. You’ve helped me so much and I can’t thank you enough.
I’ll be in touch when my baby arrives in the world and I’ll be sure we will come visit you.
Love and Light
