God blessed us with a baby girl on 27th May, 2011. Due to a drastic drop in the amniotic fluid levels, I had to be induced into labour almost 3 weeks prior to my due date. After 24 hrs of waiting, I had no pain and hence my Dr. decided to go in for a C-section as it wasn’t safe for the baby to be in for long. By the grace of God, we both are doing absolutely fine. My husband and me would like to thank you for all the help and support we received from you.
I was mentally prepared for the C-section as I had understood clearly from your classes about the pros and cons of a C-section. Unlike my mother who was in panic the entire time about what would happen to me if I didn’t have a normal delivery, I was doing just fine. Sarfaraz, my husband was also more prepared and ready, rather than being worried as he too picked up a lot from your labour class. Had it not been for your labour class I don’t think he would have ever entered the labour room, and having him there standing next to me in the operation theatre was the most important thing for me then, as I didn’t want to go through the whole thing alone. He knew exactly what to expect and what to do and was a big support to me! He could handle my mood swings, anger and fear very well as he knew from the labour class what he was going to get from me.
I didnt have a chance to practice much of the breathing you taught us, but post partum has been great. I’ve learned so much from you, which has been so helpful during this entire journey. Thank you so much for everything.
