Testimonials from mothers
Loving Touch Preparation was a very enriching experience for us in our first pregnancy and we really wanted to go through the experience again for our second pregnancy. It was extremely important for us
A different kind of birth, the outcome of a very intense trip within myself… thank you for helping me opening some doors…
It is hard to find the right words to describe the happiness, courage, depth, emotions…that each visit to you brought in our lives. I would simply say thank you, but “with a great big one” as children would say. With love.
I want to say ‘Thank you’, but words don’t reflect the support and richness that you have given us through this approach, which is not only limited to birth but goes way beyond, and is of great benefit for the whole family. Since I can’t find the right words to give it justice, and tell you how much this work has given me and is still giving me today, I would simply say, as Leo, who was the first one to bring this in our lives (and as his little sister seems to believe, too): ‘it’s great’.
Thank you to have accompanied us in such a warm way whilst we were expecting our little girls. Most of all thank you for bringing light and for allowing us to go through this 9 months experience in consciousness and light, these births were a truly magic moment. We are looking forward to seeing you soon again to continue the ‘welcoming’ of our children.
I would like to add that I have the feeling that since we deepened this affective contact, this little child ahs had the possibility to affirm that he is already different from us. It’s impressive also how I have the feeling that he was immediately ready for this contact from the start, ready to interact with us. It allows me to discover his personality as he discovers mine, in a very secure and safe way for each of us. I agree with Jean-Paul : we don’t invent without him, we try to live reality with him, day by day, and of course we imagine, we invent, but in the ‘here and now’.
I am always touched and proud to feel that I can put all my love in my hands, like a flow that goes from my heart, from my soul to the palm of my hands and to the centre of my belly, to my baby. Feeling that this contact is efficient, appeasing, unifying and bonding for me, my baby and Alfonso, my loved ones… It’s reassuring. It’s also good to feel that this contact is soothing for the baby and for me. I can also give love to myself.

Loving Touch Preparation for Childbirth has been a very enriching experience for us and our baby for our first pregnancy and we really wanted to experience it again for our second child. It was really important for us. The Loving Touch Preparation for Childbirth of Clarence has allowed Frederic and I to have a very unique and affectionate time with our second baby. We have also integrated our first-born, Angelique, into it. This has been a way for her to bond with her brother before he was born. A special bond was created between Angélique and Clarence from the beginning of pregnancy.
Around the 31st week of pregnancy we went through some difficult and stressful times caused by multiple contractions. Since we stayed in contact and present with Clarence, we were able to be more confident and reassuring to him.
As the months went on, we felt that the affective bond was becoming stronger and stronger. Clarence very much appreciated our playing with him and we as well. He loved the contact that Frédéric, Angélique and I had with him.
What still further impressed us during this second experience was to feel how much our baby felt invited during his birth. The fact that he took such a part in his birth really proves it. In between pushes while I was relaxing, Clarence made strong movements with his head towards my perineum. He, too, was working very hard. Since birth, Clarence adores being in contact with the people around him and there is a deep presence in his eyes which charms everyone. Once again, we have been astonished to see how deep is the impression that we know him and he know us.
Testimonials from fathers
The guidance that you gave us around Valentine’s birth greatly contributed to our living her arrive in serenity, and probably also helped her to appear so at peace. Valentine is in top form, very bright and aware
Not knowing is a terrible anxiety. When someone answers my questions, it is much easier to evaluate the path to take… and to realize that, in reality, I am not the first one to take it. Thank you also to have given me a role in this status of father, which sometimes doesn’t feel so meaningful.
Thank you for this wonderful preparation for childbirth. Thanks to you, I learned to know my parents way before I got here. You taught them gestures and words that relax and appease me. I am a very bright and awake boy. My parents also thank you for everything.
Following a couple of friend’s advice, we began to follow a Loving Touch Preparation for Childbirth. We arrived to our first meeting completely ignorant and somewhat sceptical. It was a very surprising session, full of discoveries. First I discovered my body. Then I discovered the affective contacts we could have with our little guy, the games we could play with him and also a kind of language of the heart that the three of us developed, through the guidance of our practitioner. This approach brought us closer to our baby, especially Daniel, who became much more conscious of the presence of this little being, his child. We now have the impression that the two of us are going to bring our child into the world. We are very enthusiastic. Our friends were right, it’s fantastic!
Words are hard to find to express my feelings. The first thing that amazed me was to discover a “relational reality” between this baby and me. Before that there were these dreams, these desires, these projects, which were creating a reality “without the baby”, a relation where I was dominating everything… except that I was overwhelmed… Since this affective contact has been established with this “baby-person”, I am no longer in a relation without him. It is a relationship with him. This means that as a person, he can also influence the relationship according to his desire, his own moods. Certainly, that changes everything. There is now a real relationship between us, full of his little story (although already heir of a long prehistory) and myself, the adult, living this relationship in the “here and now” and no longer in the future. Without doubt, another impression is my joy to already be able to concretely tell him all the confidence that I have in his life, which is beginning. All my “solidarity” as his father, to communicate to him something GOOD, secure, confirming of his personal story which begins.
