Tell the doctor immediately if any of these serious side effects occur in the mother: irregular heartbeat, dizziness, lightheadedness, swelling, severe bleeding (after childbirth), seizures, headache, blurred vision, one-sided weakness. Tell your doctor immediately if any of these serious side effects occur in the newborn: irregular heartbeat, yellowing eyes or skin, bleeding in the eyes, seizures. An allergic reaction to this drug is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing.

I found that all of the breathing and relaxation techniques were really helpful during labour, especially when things started to get more intense.

Thank you so much, Naomi Beck

Because it was my first child, I wanted to be really well prepared for labour. The most valuable thing for me, about taking Elizabeth’s classes was that it removed ALL the fears that I had about childbirth. I was able to easily remain “calm and focused” throughout my labour. Rebecca Bone

Working with Elizabeth was a pleasure. Not only was she very pleasant to work with and extremely professional, Elizabeth has a strong command of her subject matter and makes learning enjoyable and effortless. Her video series has been well researched and delivered. I highly recommend her services, you will not be disappointed.

I'll never forget you - you brought my beautiful daughter in to this world, It was a very peaceful delivery (though at the hospital and induced) but my daughter is like a little buddha. she is so sensitive, compassionate, with empathy. I like to think your contribution to the start of her life made some impact on her approach to the world. Thank you.

I really enjoyed your online course. The partners guide is very eye opening.

It definitely has given me the information I needed to confidently support my wife in labour.

Thank you so much for this wonderful course.  I just delivered my baby a few days ago and had an excellent labour.  I went from 18+ hours for my first baby to only 3 hours this time around.  I found the information very helpful!
