Dear Ellie:

Just a quick note to let you know that I had my baby (Lia Isobel). The labor was wonderful. I labored for about 9 hours (2 hours of pushing), but with the hypnosis, I did not need any medication. I listened to the Rainbow Relaxation tape throughout the labor and Neil guided me through several of the other exercises you taught us (the sleep breathing, the glove). I was incredibly calm during even the most intense contractions. It was a beautiful experience.

Thank you for your help.
