what people are saying about Suzanne Swan

Gynette

I just wanted to say thank you for the yoga classes and the active birth workshop. Both of these helped give me and my husband the information, tools and confidence to have the kind of birthing experience I really wanted natural, drugfree, exhilarating, thorougjly satisfying. My girl was born with waters still intact, after an 8 hour labour, most of which we spent at home. She was born in the shower, where I was kneeling with my elbows on a swiss ball, my arms straight and hands holding onto a grab bar on the wall. In all, I spent 20 mins of the labour on the bed. The whole experience just blew me away, and the recovery has gone extremely well. Your classes played an important part in making us feel empowered to be clear and firm about what we wanted, which the hospital staff respected. In fact, they seemed to quite enjoy the experience. Thank you for helping my dream come true.

Just wanted to email and say thank you for all you taught my husband and I in active birth yoga and the workshop. We had a healthy baby girl, Evelyn (Evie) Jill Sullivan, on the 15/5 after an 18hr labour using lots of yoga positions (rebozo even featured) and no pharmacological pain relief. We both felt empowered and informed after the classes and the positive affirmations definitely helped me.
