Our client's waterbirth testimonials:
"The Waterbirth Class was so informative and the videos
were amazing! I can't wait
for my birth!!!
"The best word I can think of to describe my birth in water is SOFT. Everything was so soft ... the warm water, your voice, your touch, the color of the pool, my baby's velvety skin,
my breath, the music."
"I didn't have to "work" at relaxing ... it just happened
as I melted into the warm water."
"It was as though I was
floating in a womb ... safe
and secure ... almost like
being born again myself."
"The pain level decreased ... almost in half when I entered the pool. It was like I had
been given an epidural ... only
I was free to move and float and be fully in my labor."
"Being in the pool provided me with a sense of protection from the outside world and what felt like a variety of interruptions. Everyone in the room became more quiet and reverent when I entered the water. I loved that.
"I never imagined I would be able to describe my birth as AWESOME! I feel so blessed! Thank you Patti for guiding me to my dream birth!"
"After sinking into the water, my contractions went from feeling like a pyramid to feeling round, like an ice-cream scoop. The water softened everything and made my labor feel much more manageable."
"I am pregnant with my 2nd baby and will be hoping for another waterbirth. There are no words that can describe how much better I felt while laboring in the water vs. in the hospital bed. We hope you will be our doula again Patti. We can't imagine our birth without you ... and the birthing tub!
"Your class was so interesting and helped to really increase my
confidence in my desire to labor and birth in water. Now we want to experience the "Ice Journey"! Thank you! Debbie
