Six years on and I still fondly remember arriving at Helensville birthing centre after an emergency C-section with Avera. A very jaded, but blissfully happy little family. There was a 24 hour support system given by the staff- they ensured a successful latch, ease of pain, and a comfortable Co-sleep, it was beautiful. The staff empower not only mothers but also fathers with their knowledge and kindness. I recommend to all and will forever be grateful for the lessons, sleep and healing I received at the little sanctuary, Love from Lisa and Avera Anderson.
