During my labour Natalie was so reassuring, respected my wishes and assured me of her full support with my choices and decisions. Natalie was in regular contact with me during early labour, giving helpful suggestions to make my labour easier. When I went to hospital Natalie came to be with me and she didn't leave my side, giving me the strength to continue with my plans and to manage my contractions without pain relief, as I wished.
Natalie made sure I understood what was being offered and supported me in the decisions that I made for my care. For me, Natalie was a God send and I couldn't have asked for a better birthing partner.
