Sometimes plans change due to special circumstances, and intervention is necessary. This birth story is a beautiful example of this. First-time parents Melissa and Bruce made an informed choice to consent to an induction. They were well prepared having attended my Hypnobirthing AustraliaTM classes, and hired me as their doula. (They also sampled the Bold Beautiful Birth program when I first launched it). They used all their tools throughout the induction process and had an absolutely amazing birth! It was beautiful witnessing how connected they were throughout the birth - Bruce was so in tune with how to quietly hold space for Melissa and was by her side at every moment.
Below are my favourite photos from their birth. A special thank you to Melissa for kindly allowing me to share these beautiful images. <3
