Melissa Turner Birth Story – August 2010

melissa_turnerI began using the Gentle Birth Method about 3 months into my pregnancy and I believe I had the most amazing birth because of my dedication to this method.

I had a very peaceful water birth at The Family Birth Centre in Subiaco, I was in labour for 8 hours, spending about 3 hours in the bath pushing Owen out though it didn’t seem that long to me, he weighed 9 pounds 1 ounce, which was a massive surprise as I didn’t look that big and having such a good diet didn’t think my baby would be that large, even though he still came out without any intervention (you have to do the pre stretching!).
