Inhale Peace, Exhale Tension

In the early hours of Saturday, the team supported this incredible first time Mum as she birthed her baby girl at home in the pool. We love her positive affirmations – they reinforced her hypnobirthing techniques as her baby calmly arrived earthside. #Homebirthjusthappened

Welcome Home

The team had the pleasure of welcoming this Baby Girl this morning at #home in the #pool with her named midwife supporting her. It was this experienced mother’s 2nd Homebirth with the team. This beautiful cross stitch took her 260hrs to make (!) and made a lovely welcome for her baby daughter. #homebirthjusthappened
