“Before I signed up for the antenatal classes at Dwi, I was rather apprehensive and even paranoid at times about how I was going to handle my labour and although I was fairly confident I'd survive the experience I still figured I would require some serious sedation to help get the baby out of me :) After my sessions with Rakhi, I certainly became more confident and was more prepared mentally and physically for labour and quite contrary to what I had imagined; I was able to get through labour without any epidural... I think of that as being rather commendable but that was only because the breathing techniques I had learned from Rakhi really distracted me during labour... I was focusing on getting my breathing right that strangely enough I was able to block out the pain! So thank you Rakhi!”
