Just a quick note to let you know that Luca was born naturally, Laurie was a wonderful birthing partner. We had a long pre-labour, but only 4 ½ hours in hospital prior to the birth – which was a really positive experience. Thanks so much for your integral input. We are delighted with the result and our gorgeous boy Luca.
Best wishes, Liz

Hi – I’m Jordie. My nanna, Di trained my mum in HypnoBirthing and it was ever so nice for me too. I even got to listen to really nice, gentle music while I was being birthed.
