helped us to become fully aware parents-to-be...
When I got pregnant, I knew that I wanted to live this experience in the most natural way. But this is not as simple as it sounds, especially in a world where birth has become to be more like a medical operation than a natural procedure. I needed someone to guide me through this amazing adventure. I was disappointed to discover that there are practically no midwives following pregnancies and labours in Turkey. Fortunately, a friend told me about Do-um. I spoke about it with my doctor, who encouraged me to join their classes. He agreed that I should be as much prepared as possible. At the beginning, what I was looking for was just a breathing technique to deal with the pains. This is what I had in mind concerning birth preparation courses. When my husband and I joind Do-um we discovered there was much more we ignored! We were happily surprised to find ourselves surrounded by serious and caring professionals who provided us with important information about all aspects of pregnancy and birth. They helped us to become fully aware parents-to-be and ready to deal with the miracle of life and we are greatful for this. I would also like to stress the importance of these courses particularly for my husband, who became the most motivated and involved partner, ready to support me all through the labour. Do-um helped us to become a team, which is extremely important. When the moment came, I felt ready. I went to the hospital with great excitement but without stress. And I did it!
