If you are considering doing Charlene’s hypnobirthing course or using her as you doula – DO IT! She is an incredibly special person to help you on your journey to meeting to your baby. I did Charlene’s hypnobirthing course which helped me release fear and gave me so much confidence in my ability to birth my baby naturally. I also used Charlene as my doula which is one of the best decisions I ever made.
She is such a gentle and nurturing person and so knowledgeable in all aspects of pregnancy, birth and looking after your newborn. She was so genuinely caring and always available for me when I needed her. She went above and beyond! I had some complications towards the end of my pregnancy which put me on bed rest and it was a really tough time for me.
Charlene would pop in with homemade tinctures and homeopathic things and give me foot rub or pre-natal massage. She would whats app me often just to check in and see how I was doing. She was such an incredible support. Then at the actual birth she set a lovely atmosphere – she dimmed the bright hospital lights and put fairy lights around the room, she helped me through my surges and supported me and my husband beautifully when things weren’t going according to plan. He was so grateful to have her there!!
After the birth she gave me many wise words and a lot of emotional support as well as practical tips for looking after my newborn. I can’t speak highly enough of this lovely lady. If you have the opportunity to do a course with her or use her as your doula, do it! You won’t regret it ☺
