Working with Carla transformed my birth experience. The pre birth sessions were incredibly useful for both myself and my husband, as we did not really know what to expect. Carla takes time to understand you, and what you want from your birth process, and then helps you to work towards that goal. I felt prepared and ready for anything.
During the birth I felt calm and reassured that Carla was there to ‘translate’ between myself and the medical staff – she was an advocate for me and what I wanted/needed. She was also essential in making sure my husband was alright!! When we needed to deviate from the birth plan, Carla talked it through with me and made sure I was informed and happy about various decisions.
Once my baby was born, Carla was also essential in helping me to breast feed, bathe the baby, and just generally start transitioning into motherhood.
