Eliza’s Arrival

I must start this by saying a big thankyou to our wonderful midwife Juliana for her help and gentle guidance during the birth of our beautiful daughter. I truly believe your calming influence and experience ensured a safe and beautiful birth that our little family will always cherish.

I engaged the services of Juliana when I found out I was pregnant with my third child. My first born I had gone with an obstetrician and although a good birth had felt it was quite rushed and had been given an episiotomy due to this. My second child I had wanted a home birth but was persuaded by family to attend a hospital my sister worked at. I had an excellent birth but due to aggressive management of the placenta I had a PPH among other stuff ups. I felt with my 3rd I wanted a nice and relaxed birth from start to finish with only interventions that were needed not just as a precaution. Unfortunately I was excluded at the birth centre I was booked into at 37 weeks. I was devastated but after speaking with Juliana I felt much more content as I knew I had excellent care from her regardless of where I would give birth. As it would happen our little girl was born very quickly at home in a very calm and relaxed environment. I was able to have a natural 3rd stage labour as I had requested and believe the confidence I had in Juliana really made such a difference. I had very minimal blood loss and felt fantastic. Soon after her birth our two children were able to hop into bed with me while I breastfed their little sister. It will always be a highlight that we all will remember.
