I first met Sandra when I was 5 months pregnant expecting my 3rd child. I was looking for someone to help me achieve what I did not manage to do with my first 2 children: having a peaceful birth, breastfeeding and avoiding baby blues.
At our first contact she didn’t talk much, she just listened to me. She is very open-minded and I liked her kind attitude. She suggested Hypnonatal to help me deal with my anxiety and encouraged my wish of a having a “natural” birth. My baby was in breech position so she helped me find a doctor who would agree to go for a natural delivery (quite difficult to find in Singapore). She read everything about breech and emailed me all the interesting stuff she could find. We met 4 or 5 times before the big day. We talked a lot about everything; she definitely has the best listening skills I ever met.
When the big day happened I was incredibly zen. She helped me deal with the contractions as I would never imagine I would be able to. My husband was very impressed and so glad she was here (until that day he was sceptical about the doula concept . Sandra showed me the right positions, put her magic hands on me, and when the foot of my baby suddenly slipped out (which was not suppose to happen!), she helped me stay calm. My baby finally arrived feet first, naturally and within less than 4 hours. Everything went perfectly well and I didn’t have any other painkiller than Sandra’s amazing support!
After such a wonderful birth I was definitely confident with myself and ready to face the breastfeeding challenges. After 3 months I am still breastfeeding my baby and I did not suffer of any kind of post partum depression. I am still in contact with Sandra, I regularly drop her emails with silly questions about baby’s problems, she always gives answers and good advice. Once again, thank you Sandra for everything!
