I thought I better update you about our successful & safe labour and delivery of our baby girl. I would also like to thank you all for your support and education leading up to the day. We could not have asked for a better labour and more healthy and alert baby.
We welcomed our daughter into the world on Tuesday 17th February at 2.17am, a day earlier than her estimated \\\"due date\\\". Weighing 2.8082kgs & 49cm long.
The labour commenced on Monday morning at around 5 am starting with regular, 10 minute contractions.
Lily was born within an hour of getting to hospital. I did not get the GBS antibiotic injection , due to her being born so quickly after the waters broke. So excellent outcome.
I am proud to say that there was never a time I panicked, requested pain medication, abused my husband or asked someone to make it stop. I felt in control the whole time and calm & accepting of the process. It certainly hurt like hell at times, but all of my support leading up to the labour and helpful education certainly went a long way.
Lily cried out the moment her head came out & was lively from the get go.
I had no tearing or stitches, just some \\\"grazing\\\". I delivered the placenta on my own and did not need the injection.
We had a lovely supportive midwife as well, which made the process that much better.
Our daughter is very well, lively, strong and a crazy mad feeder. She has been sleeping well and a very good baby, so far.
I am happy to say I only had 2 Panadol for \\\"pain relief\\\" (what a joke) throughout the whole labour and took no pain relief after either.
So thank you all again, (especially around my final last attempt to get rid of my GBS bacteria).
I really appreciate all you input and I do feel like a real success story!
I just want to let you know that I have given birth to a beautiful baby girl yesterday, Amelia Laurie. Thank you very very much for all your help. It\\\\\\\'s not over exaggerating when I say I could not have done the preconception and pregnancy journey without you and all your health advice a support. Amelia is the picture of health.
Labour went well and Amelia was born in 5 hours!
Thank you very very much again Doreen
Thank you again Doreen - you have been the best naturopath I have ever seen.
I am SO much better than a few months ago. Also I worked a shift today. I haven\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t had the health/ energy/ motivation/ clear mind to work for about 5 years!
Although I still am not 100%, I definitely am feeling better.
Weight loss success story from a happy client today who has lost 32.2kg with us in 7 months!
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Thanks so much Doreen for getting my life back on track and helping me drop 32.2kg since June last year! I feel fantastic - more energy, less bloated as well as feeling more focused and motivated.
Your support and encouragement help be achieve my goals and improve my long term health. My starting weight was 125.4kg, today 93.2kg. I am so happy and appreciative!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"
I have been seeing Doreen for the past 2.5 years. Her knowledge and passion for helping her clients is second to none. I would highly recommend her! She has helped me through 2 pregnancies and I really appreciate the support she has given me before, during and afterwards.
You\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve meant a lot to me in my healing journey with Chronic fatigue. (I rave about you to any who are looking for a naturopath).
You\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re one of only two doctors who helped me out of so many. You have a rare quality found in doctors (..people..). you connect with people without ego/no nonsense, and from there, help people because you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re not blinded by this - you listen to people with precision to find the truth. I really appreciate you.
