'Spontaneous labour in a normal woman is an event marked by a number of processes so complicated and so perfectly attuned to each other that any interference will only detract from the optimal character.
The only thing required from the bystander is that they show respect for this awe-inspiring
process by comlying with the first rule of medicine - nil nocere (do no harm)'
- Gerrit-Jan Kloosterman, Professor of Obstetrics, 1982
"I couldn't have birthed so well without Megan.
This pregnancy was my second and I yearned for a natural birth without drugs and interventions. I wanted this so much that I was doing everything that I could to prepare for it.
Megan was so supportive and encouraging in the lead up to my daughter's birth. Each time I had doubts or fears come in, Megan was able to remind me of how I wanted to birth. My mindset changed and I had all her positive information and mantras ready to pull out whenever I needed them.
The day came and we met Megan at the hospital after she had a great intuition to come as soon as we told her my water had broken. My surges increased fast and by the time we met Megan I was well in the second stage.
When everything became intense for me Megan talked to me, held my hands and gave me the reassurance and encouragement that I needed.
Whilst I was going with each intense surge, Megan was so calm, supporting and loving. She was there when I birthed my baby girl without interventions or drugs. This experience empowered me as a woman and a mother.
Megan you are so beautiful and we are forever grateful that you helped to bring my deepest wish to life."
So much love Beate, Luke and Sophie.
"I had a beautiful and joyful birth experience with my 4th child Bede. Megan was pivotal in every aspect because she embodies in her heart and soul, respect, love and skilful care for the art and practice of supporting families birth their babies.
I look at my son now, almost 11, and realise without doubt that the joy and gentleness by which he lives his life is a direct mirror of the calm and sure birthing space he was born into.
His first glimpse of the world whispered to him ‘you are safe, come into this wonder of life, little one’ and so he did. I am deeply grateful to Megan for lighting the way for him and for us, a beautiful beginning that will never end."

"Before our meeting with Megan I was anxious, two weeks overdue, worried and lacking confidence.
Afterwards I felt in control, relaxed, calm, grounded, powerful and confident.
It was so special that Megan involved Sam. It was great for him as he was worried about me and after our birthing session he felt confident that he was able to help me through our birthing experience.
Megan also helped my Mum in the exactly same way when she was in labour with my little brother Bradley, I find that really special."

"Megan's prenatal course, Light on Birth, was exactly what we needed to prepare for labour. Her gentleness and warm sense of humour made us relaxed and confident about birthing.
I absolutely loved the meditation that drew on the strength of all the women who have birthed before me, the maternal power that has existed for eternity. I used this visualisation during Labour to help me through transition. It was both powerful and empowering."
