"My first 3 babies were in the hospital with epidurals, which is what I had always wanted and planned for.  With Babies 2 and 3, the epidurals left me so dizzy, nauseated and shaky that I couldn't hold my babies for hours after. Not being able to enjoy those precious first moments really bothered me. So number 4, I decided to do a natural birth. But I was terrified!  Could I really do it?  What if something went wrong?  My husband was also nervous and not on board. I knew we needed help and guidance. I called Bridget. She came to my home, taught me what to expect, how to get through labor successfully, and addressed my fears. I felt so relieved and empowered when she left. I asked my husband if he would be willing to meet with her and see if he could do this me. I really wanted us to conquer this together and knew it could really strengthen us as a couple. He reluctantly agreed. Bridget was amazing. She was assertive and talked to him as if he were already committed. She taught him how to support me and what I would need. She somehow made him feel confident and even excited.  Something I had been trying to do for months, she managed to do in an hour.  And we did it!  With the support of my husband, I delivered our baby girl naturally in the hospital. It was such an amazing experience and really bonded us. I felt great right after. Thanks to Bridget, I finally got that first moment with my baby. It was beautiful to be completely in the moment and something I will cherish."
