“I didn’t panic like last time which was my big fear and not being able to believe in my body. It was all amazing.”

Hi Gemma, I wanted to say thank you so so so much for all of your help and wisdom and for being so amazing. Your enthusiasm for wanting to share Natal Hypnotherapy with people is really touching and meant a lot to me.

I wanted to let you know Luke James McGarry Phillips was born 19th Aug 4.04am 8lbs 6oz 53cm. We are both healthy and back home the same day. I listened to the cd in the car which helped me focus as contractions were 1.5 to 2 mins apart. I was in early labour for 5days then he turned his head and dropped then waters broke and he was born 1.5 hours later. The thought kept going through my head of how natural this is even though it was very intense and painful. I didn’t panic like last time which was my big fear and not being able to believe in my body. It was all amazing. There were complications but they didn’t have time to take me to the labour ward and I felt ok trusting them and my partner to listen to what was best. I am totally amazed by it all.

“I am totally amazed by it all.”

I did wonder there must be something stopping him from turning his head and perhaps should of asked for a scan after dilating for 5 days and nothing happening. Think that’s the instinct thing you talked about.

I wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help and generosity. xx
