"This was our first pregnancy and, as can be imagined, we felt somewhat anxious about this incredible unknown. I had no idea what to expect in terms of bodily and mental experience. We participated in a delivery preparation course, which only left me more anxious. The rigorous, structured order of the lamaze breathing methods made me feel we, as a couple, should keep up with a pace which I couldn't fully relate. If he missed a beat, I got upset. If we didn't practice enough, I felt guilty. In the end, it just added more stress to an already intense equation. Working with you, I knew you could help us find a way to channel our communication as a couple in the most effective, natural way into the delivery room. Your work with each of us separately and with both of us together reminded me of our great, unique strength and made me remember that I already have all the answers. Your encouragement, experience and the space you opened for us (or reminded us of its existence) were invaluable. It made our experience together in the delivery room organic, natural and - surprisingly! - relaxed. I can't thank you enough!"
