Rocking my pelvis

Here is a testimony by one of my students who gave birth in January 2014. I like her style in French with some English in it. Please find the translation underneath if you don’t speak French

 

Voilà, on est 5 a la maison ! Ca fait un moment car Zak est né le 9 Janvier. Ca fait longtemps que je veux t’écrire, pour te remercier car je suis persuadée que sa naissance a été beaucoup influencée par tes enseignements. J’ai perdu les eaux sans beaucoup de contractions et, évidemment, au JR ils voulaient  déclencher. Je suis restée une nuit là-bas, avec une “induction” prévue à 7 heures du matin du 9. Je ne suis pas arrivée à dormir et à 3 am j’ai eu un déclic mental et j’ai commencé à bouger partout dans l’hôpital. Basically j’ai rocked my pelvis ‘till I was blue in the face, breathed and meditated et voilà..pas de déclenchement! Une fois le vrai travail commencé, Zak est né une heure et demi plus tard, avec beaucoup de sounding et zero pain relief!

Sans toi, Becky Walden et mindfulness meditation je crois que je n’aurais jamais pu faire ça…surtout le passage mental pendant la nuit pour éviter le déclenchement et la capacité de faire beacoup de ‘bon’ bruit au bon moment. Donc, un grand merci à toi!

Federica, UK, January 2014

Here we are five in the house! It’s been a while as Zak was born on the 9th of January. It’s been some time since I wanted to write to you to thank you, as I’m convinced that his birth has been influenced by your teachings. My waters broke without many contractions, and obviously at the JR they wanted to induce me. I spent the night over there, with an induction planned for 7 am in the morning of the 9th. I didn’t manage to go to sleep and by 3 am, I had a mental switch et I started to move all round the hospital. Basically I rocked my pelvis ‘till I was blue in the face, breathed and meditated and there we are… no induction! Once labour had started, Zak was born one hour and a half later with lots of sounding et zero pain relief!

 

Without you, Becky Walden and mindfulness meditation, I believe I could never had done that… especially the mental switch during the night to avoid induction and the ability to make a lot of “good” noise at the right time. So a big thank you!
