Andy’s Birth Experience
In 2002 Andy experienced a great deal of intervention and a lot of fear during her labour with her beautiful 1st son Jack. The experience left her feeling dissatisfied about birth, she felt like she had failed in being able to bring him into the world without the epidural she wanted to avoid.
The medical intervention made her feel powerless when she “failed to progress” and she narrowly avoided an emergency caesarian. Andy found the whole experience really long, and ultimately she was left feeling very drugged and uncomfortable after the birth. Additionally, Andy was left without her baby for the first 2 days because of complications during the labour. That experience gave her determination for a better birth experience next time around. She was very fortunate to have her obstetrician, Dr Peter Jurcevic, when she became pregnant again.
In 2006 Andy gave birth to her 2nd child, Max. She used relaxation,active birth positions, medical care and her husbands encouragement through her labour and felt exhilarated and empowered by the birth experience. This birth was pain-free without the use of any drugs and she was able to deliver Max easily. It changed her view on birth entirely. It was experienced in a Private Hospital setting which is encouraging for women having their baby under the supervision of medical staff. Her birthing experience was life changing and her focus has shifted toward preparation for a positive birth experience and so she developed the benchmark NobleBirth Courses and Instant Downloads.
