Dr Simone Shaw is excited to announce the safe and healthy arrival of her third son, Frank who was born at 41 weeks at a healthy 3.925 kilograms (8.6 pounds), with a head circumference of 36.5 centimetres and 5o centimetres in length. Simone utilised self-hypnosis and breathing techniques to deliver her baby via water birth without the use of analgesics or medical intervention. Simone believes that women’s bodies have an innate wisdom to grow and birth their babies and can assist you throughout your pregnancy journey, birth of your baby and beyond. Simone is enjoying getting to know her newest little man during her maternity leave.
