These comments have been kindly sent to us after attending Daisy Birthing classes in Bedford since we started providing the unique gently yoga inspired active birth classes. Names have been changed to protect their privacy where requested.
Sat here admiring my gorgeous boy and just wanted to say a huge thanks for the Daisy birthing classes.
I was a bit worried that cos I had to be induced by drip I would be pinned to a bed, but my midwife was great and agreed that I could be in the positions I chose - even if it meant a lot of repositioning of baby's heart monitor!
I felt so prepared for what was to come, got on with my daisy breathing and used gas and air to get from 4cm to fully, along with the daisy birthing music! Delivery was long and hard and I thought it would never end, but managed to dispatch of the gas and air and beared down to deliver harry, kneeling down but with one foot on the floor so my pelvis was 30% bigger!
Thank you again - the classes were so beneficial and put me firmly in the zone. Looking forward to the daisy baby classes at the end of march.
Love Anna and baby Harry x" Bedford March 2012
I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU!!! The Daisy Birthing classes were fantastic and helped my birth to be 'easy'!!
Just to update you. I went into labour gently on Friday and managed to stay busy all day Saturday (swimming, shopping, walks, eating etc) finally went into hospital at 11.30pm on Saturday night and Elizabeth was born at ten to one on Sunday morning, in the pool. I used a Tens machine until I got into the birthing pool and 'breathed' her out without even having gas an air! To my complete shock it was the best labour I could have ever imagined, and our little girl is perfect - 6lbs 11oz and we we're both home and happy by 11.30am Sunday morning.
We're looking forward to meeting up with you and all the other mums and babies at Daisy Babies. Lots of love Jenny x, Bedford 2012
A huge Thank you to Susie at Daisy Babies,
I honestly believe I would not have made it through my four days of
"early labour" so calmly & enjoyed the pool birth I had hoped for
without the sessions I thoroughly enjoyed with Susie & friends at
Daisy Birthing Yoga,
I can't wait to bring Thomas along to Baby Yoga! Big Thanks from him too Susie! Lucy x, Bedford 2012
I listened to the Daisy Birthing CD all the way through my labour and used the positions and breathing techniques which were invaluable. Daisy Birthing was by far the most valuable classes I did in pregnancy. Susie was fantastic, friendly &welcoming. She had a lovely calm approach and was an amazing teacher. I could not have got through the birth without her. Cary and Pippa x Bedford June 2012
Daisy Birthing helped me calm down and learn to breath correctly. The classes helped me to deal with labour and it was great that we often stopped to ask questions. Susie was very knowledgable. Sarah and Darcy x Bedford July 2012
Susie is brilliant, relaxed and knowledgeable but also taking time to explain why we did what we did in class. I would love CD with Susie's voice on for relaxation at home Gill and Matthew x Bedford July 2012
Daisy Birthing classes gave me confidence and helped me relax. I also made some great friends which gave me extra support. Susie is very personable, knowledgeable and puts everyone at ease. I highly recommend these classes for any woman who wants a natural birth and who wants to feel more relaxed and in control of her labour Alex and Abi x July 2012
"Susie was superb, she has a lovely manner and took the time to get to know each of us and understand
our individual concerns. The atmosphere is class was really relaxed and
allowed me to relax and ask questions. I have recommended these classes
to all my pregnant friends for that personal experience from someone
that genuinely cares about everyone in her classes and is there to
support and reassure them all" Bridget and Luke, September 2012
