Nilsha's story

A tale of two labours! Precipitous (very fast) second birth

Season 1, episode 8
47 min / Published

In this week's episode Nilsha tells the story of both her births... and boy is it a tale of two labours!!

I loved both her stories, and Nilsha had a positive experience with both babies, but they couldn't really have been more different.

Her first birth had a long early phase of labour (or as I describe it with my clients, she was in the "first room" from a long time). She has so much wisdom to share about keeping calm and positive. It's very inspirational how much faith Nilsha had her in body and how she coped with, and I meant totally bossed, those many hours at home - with random little hospital stay to contend with too.

And then you'll love her description of her second birth. I don't want to spoil it but let's just say it was quite a surprise compared to the first. If you want evidence babies don't read textbooks, then this is it!
