“Working in an environment where there is an escalation in obstetric intervention including the use of epidurals and caesarian sections I have been very pleased to be able to see my patients undertake their births with significantly improved pain control and with less need for intervention at the end of delivery. Maternal and foetal outcomes are improved as a consequence and this is in no doubt due to the benefits gained from this preparation I cannot more strongly recommend this process and have been delighted with the way this is conducted through the NobleBirth program”
