However, when we walked out of Laurie’s birth preparation consultancy, we were a team. Adrien had gotten a clear idea about his role and even a toolbox of tricks how to support me in labour. From then on, the uncertainty and nervousness I had felt anticipating our baby’s birth, had mostly turned into excitement.
The birth went very well, better than I had dared to hope. Two weeks ago, little Lukas came after only six hours of active labour, and it had been a natural birth without any intervention or complication. Lukas has had the best possible start in life and I recover very well. I think back of the birth as an adventure and I am profoundly awed by mother nature’s power dwelling in us. Thank you, Laurie, for having made this life experience so beautiful and empowering for us three.
