I followed the Gentle Birth Method for the nine months of my pregnancy. It was hard at first to stick to the diet but I managed to stay gluten, sugar and dairy free.
I’m sure this is what really helped me stay healthy throughout and made childbirth peaceful as I had hoped. We had decided to have a home birth and so being in optimal health was vital to me as going to hospital was not an option!
I visualised a morning birth and our daughter was born on a sunny Saturday morning – her due date! It was a gentle and peaceful birth. She came out with her hand on her head, sneezed, looked around and then seven minutes later the rest of her body was born.
