FTM, accidental home birth.

This is super long as I wrote it out to help me process it all.
 
On Friday morning I woke up and had what I thought was a small leak and a bloody show and thought I was in the early stages of labour! I saw my midwife that afternoon who checked my waters and advised they were not leaking and it was just my mucous plug and my cervix were still shut completely.
 
Throughout Saturday I lost more of my mucous plug and it seemed to be getting more watery, I was planning on following up with my midwife on Sunday to check again it wasn't my waters...
 
9:30pm I felt my first niggle but wasn't sure if it was just trapped wind ๐Ÿคฃ I tried to sleep but I just couldn’t and by 11pm I knew that it wasn't wind and probably not braxton hicks.
 
I left my husband in bed and went and watched Schitts Creek to keep those oxytocin hormones going and bounced on my gym ball. By 2am they were becoming obvious and I was bleeding a bit more so that’s when I called the...

I was able to keep my head thanks to all the techniques I learned despite the hectic circumstances .

Hypnobubs birth story.
 
Trigger warning: my birth had a number of special circumstances which led to some instrumental help and a distressed baby. This could be traumatic to some.
I wanted to share how I used my hypnobirthing tools to help me achieve my VBAC. It's a long one so strap in!
 
Tuesday the 10th Nov in the morning, I felt and heard 'POP' lying in bed and jumped up. A little gush of fluid came out and continued a steady trickle. The hospital asked me to come in to confirm waters had broken as I'd had no real surges yet. I told my husband to take the day off work and we had a pretty normal morning just getting ready for the day and packing the toddler off to Gramma's.
 
About 2 hours from waters breaking I had my first surge. They were well spaced apart, so on confirming it was my waters, the hospital sent me home and asked me to come back in 18 hours (10pm).
 
I went home and just listened to music, used my breathing and visualisations,...

The breathing definitely got me through but also the positive mind training

Positive birth story.
 
I decided to do hypnobirthing for my second as my first birth was quite traumatic.
A bit of backstory: my first birth was an induction at 40+10. I was 2cm dilated so my waters were artificially broken and contractions came on strong, I was not prepared for that. Used the gas, had morphine and 3 failed epidurals. I could still feel everything on the left side of my body. I was crazy out of my mind and lost all control. I was stuck on my back on the bed. Birthed after 18hrs on my back. Baby got stuck with shoulder dystocia, emergency called they got her out and she was sent to special care for a few hours. She was 3.4kg (8pound 4ounce). I was disconnected and my body was a war zone. I never wanted to do that again.
 
Fast forward 2years and I was pregnant with a little surprise. I knew I did not want a repeat of the first birth so started practicing hypnobirthing about half way. This time I got into the midwifery group practice and knew how...

I feel like I could do this all again because of the incredible hypnobirthing techniques that I armed myself with.

My Hypnobirth Story

Zara Maeve born 29/10/20 at 2:49am. 2856grams and 47cm long.

I decided to sign up to the hypnobirthing Australia course online early on in my pregnancy as I knew I wanted a calm and controlled birth experience (I had heard many good things about the course). I committed to listening to the MP3s regularly and practiced my breathing throughout my third trimester. I was feeling confident and ready going into the birth of my first bub.

My labour started just before 5pm last Wednesday with surges that felt like period pain. I had similar surges at 3am that morning but they disappeared and I didn’t feel any for the rest of the day until now, so I wasn’t sure if this was the real thing or false labour pains so I carried on with my evening.

I started cooking dinner around 5:30pm but I could feel that the intensity of my surges was definitely building and they were getting longer. Then I noticed I had lost some of mucus plug while I was pottering around in the...

It empowered me to make decisions and decline interventions I didn't think was necessary

I just wanted to share my experience with Hypnobirthing Australia. THANK YOU!!

I gave birth 3.5 months ago in the middle of the pandemic. We had planned a homebirth due to fear COVID-19 and at the time- not knowing how the virus was going to affect the hospital system in Australia. At 37 weeks - we made the decision to home birth with our group practice midwives. This was my second pregnancy. My first birth was through private obstetrics which failed us. A stressful delivery, no birth confidence which concluded in a NICU baby due to infant stress (meconium aspiration), and a domino effect of medical intervention including an epidural. This first birth left me with birth trauma, which impacted breastfeeding, and resulted in post-natal depression.


My second pregnancy I was determined to have a completely different experience. And opted to have give birth through a group practice midwifery. At 37 weeks, I started the hypnobirthing course, as I had decided to home birth and knew I...

I didnโ€™t even make it to the birthing suite!

My little Hypnobub - Isla Mae
 
This was my second baby and second hypnobirth. Whilst this was a much quicker arrival to the world, it was still just as magical thanks to hypnobirthing.
 
My labour commenced with regular surges 2 mins apart at midday whilst I was playing at the park with my first hypnobub. We were relaxed and had the park to ourselves so we continued to play as I breathed through the surges. After about 30 mins and the surges continuing at a regular pace, I thought it was best to head home and get ready to meet baby #2.
 
I phoned my partner who met us at home and we had lunch together - the last time as a family of three. I started to breathe through the surges on my birth ball while listening to calm music in the background. It was a beautiful peaceful time at home and we all waited to welcome baby. My son kissed my belly and told me it “will be ok mum” and he went off to bed. I cried when I put him to bed as I knew this was the...

Had only really watched the introduction .. my waters broke at 1 pm

Short and sweet post from me as I’m a little busy now ๐Ÿ˜‚... (started out to be)
 
I purchased the Hypnobirthing online course on Saturday night in the hope to use my maternity leave wisely by educating and preparing myself for birth.
 
Had only really watched the introduction .. my waters broke at 1 pm on Monday and I gave birth to my 36week6dayer at 5:55pm.
 
Thankfully I had downloaded the app and played the first mp3 over and over again from my drive to the hospital all the way through delivery.

Positive Birth Story Ahead:
 
Before I start, I can say, without a doubt, Hypnobirthing works! How do I know? I did it! I was focused on a calm, easy birth and that’s what I experienced.
A bit of background: Going into this pregnancy I was a traumatised woman. I had a very complicated and dangerous labour and delivery experience with my first son that resulted in both physical and mental trauma that lasted for over a year. I received help for both but could never truly move past the experience when birth or new babies were mentioned. I often would experience active resentment towards other women who hadn’t hated their birth or new-Mum experience.
 
A few years later I desperately wanted another child, conceived and managed to block out the entire concept of birthing him until 26 weeks when I ended up in hospital with food poisoning. Just the mere experience of walking through the hospital doors gave me enormous PTSD, I started shaking and crying...

I put my hypnobirthing tracks on and was able to breath and relax my pelvic floor through my surges

I decided to do a hypnobirthing course which was online as part of my preparation for my labour and birth. I originally did it once by myself and then when it came closer to my EDD I completed it again with my husband which was amazing because he was able to support me so much more during my labour and birth. I also used an Epi-no to help with preparation for my perineum and to also help with understanding the sensation of crowning and be able to use my hypnobirthing breathing techniques to breathe during that time to prevent any tearing.
 
I was checked by my OB at 37/40 after I requested this and asked for a stretch and sweep every week from then as I knew he was not going to let me go past 40weeks gestation and I wanted to do my best to go into labour without an induction. He told me at 37 weeks I was 1cm dilated, 50% effaced and had bulging...

My hypnobirthing experience was the most empowering moment of my life!

**Birth story
My hypnobirthing experience was the most empowering moment of my life!
After wanting to avoid an induction this time I went into labour at 39 + 2. Being able to labour at home was amazing, I had all my affirmations set up around the house, was able to use the shower and the bath and i felt so comfortable and relaxed listening to the tracks (prompts for birthing was pretty much on repeat).
 
After labouring at home for about 10 hours we decided it was time to go to the hospital where I was only 4cm - however with each surge I could feel baby moving down and I knew things were progressing very quickly! Before I knew it I was in transition, I must admit I did lose control a bit at this stage and put my thongs on ready to walk out of the hospital (not sure where I was going to go ๐Ÿ˜…) I made it into the birthing suite just in time, my body naturally started pushing with each surge so I jumped on the bed on all 4s and in 7 mins I caught my baby boy Max! It was the most...
