Nearly every single birth story, review, feedback or conversation I have includes Floppy Face Floppy Fanny because it’s literally the mantra of LIFE!… and birth of course! A floppy fanny is needed to ensure we can birth efficiently, with lower chance of tears and intervention. Floppy Face = Floppy Fanny. It’s science babes!

“Hi lovely. My name is Amie and I’m from Sydney, Australia. I wanted to send you a little message to say a big thank you. Last Saturday I gave birth to my first child. A sweet angel named Angus. My friend told me about your page during my pregnancy and immediately I saw that your posts aligned so well to my ideal pregnancy and birth. “Floppy face, floppy fanny” stuck with me most specifically! I told my husband about this and we begin first using this phrase during perineal message in the lead up to birth. We completed a “calm birth” course and this little phrase tied in so perfectly with all the techniques we used from there! Continued… As can be the case, you can’t always have the “ideal pregnancy and birth”. My birth story is a long one (which I’d happily share if Instagram gave me more characters to message with haha) but the take home points and main reason for my message are… From your posts my husband reminded me “floppy face, floppy fanny” throughout my labour. From your posts I advocated for myself and asked people to stop and explain things when birthing got difficult and things needed escalating. From your posts I feel that I did everything in my power to use my body to bring our babe safely into this world… even if it meant I needed some help in the end. You’ll never know the impact you’ve had on the lives on myself, my husband and most importantly, Gus. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Keep doing what you’re doing 💛 Amie”

No matter who you are, what your past life or current life entails it’s safe to know that YOU can influence with the power of the mind and when you do, magical things really do start to happen!

Much love
