"I was quite anxious about the whole birthing process and what it involved especially having had a previous Caesarean Section.  My Birth Buddy took it upon herself to make sure all my questions and concerns were addressed...  What actually blew me away was my Birth Buddy's attitude when labour set in... I saw a sister and a best friend in her, who stood by me through it all.  I drew strength from her positivity, words and most of all the overall support she provided.  Many thanks, keep up the good work".
