Aoife you are an absolute wealth of knowledge! Back to Birth's classes were invaluable to myself and my partner throughout our pregnancy journey and into the newborn stages of our baby.
As first time parents, we benefited hugely from all 3 of the classes we completed with Back to Birth: Time to Shine, Baby Love and The Golden Hour.
Aoife could not have been more patient and thorough with us during our classes and we genuinely learned more than we ever thought we needed to know from her. We were prepared for everything from what to expect in the delivery room/operating theatre, to the very first feed and how to get ready for bringing our baby home from hospital, when the time came.
We are still referring to our Back to Birth notes on a daily basis and also take such peace in knowing that we can reach out to her anytime with questions that may arise. Although the birth of our baby came unexpectedly early and ended up being an emergency delivery, we were well equipped and able to navigate with ease as we had covered all bases in our Back to Birth classes.
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for your sheer professionalism, passion, love and laughs! I can't wait to recommend you to ALL of my friends/family that become parents in the future. You seriously helped us so much, I can't even explain!
Thank you again for EVERYTHING Aoife, you are a total angel and incredible at what you do.
“….Your Time to Shine course was invaluable to us and helped us go through the 24hours of labour with calm and confidence! Rumi is looking forward to cuddles…”
Thanks again Aoife. You made such a difference.
We are so very glad we got to meet you and learn from you. Your Time to Shine course was invaluable to us and helped us go through the 24hours of labour with calm and confidence!
Rumi is looking forward to cuddles with you one day! Thanks again!!
“…Aodhla Rose was born on…Both myself and Adrian are so grateful for all the advice, support and knowledge you shared with us before her birth. …”
I hope you are well.
Super excited to share our news with you…
Aodhla Rose was born on 11.08 at the 2.52pm weighing just over 3.1kg. 💕
Both myself and Adrian are so grateful for all the advice, support and knowledge you shared with us before her birth.
My labour was not the “natural” and smooth experience I had hoped for and many interventions were needed. Due to reduced movements and continuous growth concerns, I agreed to be induced which began on Wednesday evening. Labour was pretty intense after that and as I felt I was unable to remain calm and in control of the experience, I opted to have an epidural. Your classes and advice really helped us weigh up all our options, and I felt I made an informed decision based on all that we had discussed with you.
As my labour progressed, Aodhla’s heartrate continued to drop. Thankfully, I was still able to have a vaginal birth, but with the help of an episiotomy and forceps. Aodhla was born with the umbilical cord wrapped twice around her neck, suggested as being the reason for the reduced movements and dropping heart rate. After a brief skin-to-skin, Aodhla was noticeably struggling to breathe and was taken away. Our experience that followed was the most difficult time in our lives, one that we had never imagined to happen. Aodhla became very unwell, as did I, and Adrian remained the pillar of strength that we both needed. After a few hours, and once Aodhla was stabilised, she was transferred to NICU in the Royal Womens Parkville. Unfortunately, I had to stay in Sandringham and we were separated for two nights.
It’s impossible to express our awe and appreciation for the doctors, midwives and nurses that helped her and I make the most amazing recovery. After a few nights, she was brought back to me in Sandringham hospital and we then came home last week 🥰
I was so grateful to be able to send all the colostrum I had collected in the last few weeks of my pregnancy up to Parkville having completed Back to Birth's Golden Hour bundle with you. I have to thank you for your advice and encouragement to try antenatal expressing. I feel it also really helped the early breastfeeding stages, as I was able to confidently express when Aodhla was in ICU. Thankfully, we have had a very successful breastfeeding journey so far too. Your class really gave me so much confidence and knowledge that has been invaluable.
Although not the beautiful birth story I had hoped to share with you, we are so beyond grateful that our beautiful daughter is now in our arms every night. 💕
Thank you again for all you taught us both.
We just loved Back to Birth's full education series!
Aoife & Adrian
“… I hope you realise the positive impact you have on your patients, you are one in a million!! Thank you so much again , Aisling, Matt & Saoirse xx”
I just wanted to let you know our beautiful girl Saoirse has arrived.
We want to thank you so so much for your educational classes ‘Time to Shine’ and Baby Love.
You filled our minds with a wealth of knowledge and because of that I had a GREAT birth experience . Matt and I both remained calm and positive throughout the whole labour and on 20th May 2022 we welcomed our baby girl via c section. Even though my birth was classed as an 'emergency', we both still remained in control and positive as we knew we were in safe hands thanks to the hospital's doctors, midwives and our Back to Birth information.
I hope you realise the positive impact you have on your patients ; you are one in a million!! Thank you so much again ,
Aisling, Matt & Saoirse xx
“…Thank you so much for all your help and support along the way. It felt SO great going into it with all the preparation thanks to our Back to Twin Birth series…”
Meet our two baby girls. We went in last Wednesday and had my waters broken about 5pm, bounced on a ball for a while but ended up with the drip a bit later. Reached 10cm at about 09:30am the following day. Madeleine joined us at 11:45am via vacuum and Isabelle at 12:09.
Absolutely in love and cannot stop staring at them. Thank you so much for all your help and support along the way. It felt SO great going into it with all the preparation thanks to our Back to Twin Birth series and the information that you provided. Lucia x “
