I attended a positive birth meeting that Sam facilitated after being recommended by a friend. I am currently on my third pregnancy and after two instances of preeclampsia I have been very anxious this time around.
Sam was very understanding and gave me good practical advice as well as a sense of empowerment that I could trust my body. She lent me a book by AIMS entitled “Am I Allowed” (the title sums it up) and it was such an interesting and insightful read.
I can honestly say that since meeting Sam and the lovely women at that meeting I have been much more in control of my anxiety and have enjoyed the pregnancy more. I am very grateful to her and hope to engage with her more throughout the next few months.
