I first got in touch with Melanie at Big Steps Little Feet when I was about 32 weeks pregnant. I was suffering with huge amounts of anxiety and worry around the birth of my second baby due to undiagnosed trauma in my first birth and post-natal period. Her 3 step re-wind programme had been recommended to me but I was worried and skeptical at first... (what were they going to do to my mind?!) But Melanie helped me feel so relaxed and at ease; she is like a breath of fresh air when it comes to birth. Melanie is warm, understanding, kind, supportive, funny and has become such a huge part of my life and this process of healing, I have absolutely loved our sessions together and feel a deep connection with her as a therapist and fellow mother.
I honestly cannot recommend the 3 step re-wind enough, I went from a panicked, anxious, guilt-ridden mum who TRULY felt that I couldn't birth this baby and couldn't face the post-natal period, to a calm, confident 37 week pregnant birthing QUEEN who is actually looking forward (yes, LOOKING FORWARD) to birthing this baby, and facing all the new challenges motherhood will throw at me. Every day I say how astounded I am about how much the process has helped me, it really is incredible and has been the best gift I could have given myself in this pregnancy. If you are suffering after a traumatic birth or post-natal period and feel it is effecting you, then please consider this process. I still have all the memories of the birth and after-wards but none of the anxiety and pain that went with it. Good luck mamas! You got this!
