My crazy labour and birth could not have been such a positive experience without hypnobirthing

Bee's Birth Story 
 
Our beautiful daughter was born 6 weeks ago via emergency caesarian, at 41 weeks. At first I was so excited to share my story as it was such a positive experience for us, but as I came back to this page and read of all the wonderful hypnobirth stories I started feeling like a bit of a failure as my birth was anything but "minimal intervention". But today I thought stuff it, my crazy labour and birth could not have been such a positive experience without hypnobirthing and I wanted to show my gratitude for that!
 
I experienced "Failure to Progress" during labour, I have seen the term "Failure to Wait" thrown around and I think it's unfair to assume this is always the case. This was my first birth and I was going through my local Birth Centre. At 39, this was my only chance to do this with the age cut off being 40 and I was so so excited. Instead, I went through 24 hours of early labour to get to 3cm before having a stretch and sweep. 14 hours later...

I am so proud of myself, my body, and my baby girl and thankful for the hypnobirthing experience.

Jacqueline's Birth story.
 
After a caserean with my 2.5 yr old daughter, I really wanted a VBAC. And I'm so happy to announce that through hypnobirthing and empowering myself with knowledge I was able to get it.
 
My waters broke at 2:30pm. I breathed through the surges t hone untill 6pm ad we haded into hospital listening to the tracks on the way. Once there my husband set up the defuse and music and read aloud the affirmation during surges which made a huge difference as they got stronger.
 
I got to 12:30am and surges had slowed down to 2 per 10mins and I was starting to struggle, I found out later I was 8cm dilated but at the time felt I couldn't keep going, so I had an epidural at 1 am and rested until 3:30 (I was feeling a bit disappointed at this time as I originally didn't want an epidural but remembered I need to go with whatever turn it takes). with a small amount of induction drug to get me fully dilated, I was Fully dilated by 3am, the epidural wore...

Caroline's Birth Story 

I wanted to quickly share my birth story with you, we had a wonderful, positive and empowering experience thanks to this education.  

I did the Hypnobirthing course over 4 weeks in February and March this year with Renee Bradfield in Perth, Western Australia. The information in the course was fantastic and my husband and I left feeling educated and empowered to make decisions about what we wanted for the birth of our daughter.

We were all set to have a water birth at the Family Birthing Centre, a purpose-built section of the hospital for a low-risk water birth, but Olivia was overdue and we had missed the cut-off of 41 weeks and 3 days. We prepared ourselves to give birth in the main hospital suite, without the water and were a bit disappointed to have missed out but happy to take the change in our stride.

We spent nine hours in the hospital the day before I went into labour, the doctors were pushing to induce us due to concerns about how long the...

I highly encourage you to find a good support network, do a hypnobirthing or calm birth course

“I DID IT AND SO CAN YOU!!!”

Zoe's Birth Story 

Baby Willow

Feb 2021

Bunbury Hospital

VBAC!

 

Previous birth: In 2018 I was booked to be induced at 41+2 but thankfully went into labour naturally that morning at 3am. I planned to have a drug/intervention free birth with KEMH birth centre but ended up being rushed to the main hospital ending in emergency c/s. Baby was posterior and could not get in a good position. I didn’t know about 'spinning babies' & exercises that can move bub so I didn’t progress ‘quick enough’. My waters were broken after about 16 hours. There was mec in my waters so they rushed me with bells & whistles to KEMH main hospital. The pain was in unbearable!  This was so traumatic for me, being ran through a hospital on a hospital bed completely naked & losing blood everywhere! I literally wanted to die & was screaming asking for my life to end. It was such a horrible experience. Once in the main...

Dana's Birth Story

Hi! I am excited to share my birth story with you all! 

It has been almost 2 months since the birth of my hypnobub, Nikita! It was an amazing labour and birth experience, and it’s all thanks to the hypnobubs course! 
 
A little background information to start with: My first child was born in January 2019. I wanted a natural labour and birth and I did some light research going in, but never really committed to an actual course. I laboured 8 hours at home before I couldn’t talk through surges. After only being at the hospital for 2 hours (and 4cm upon arrival), my surges were getting really intense. I had some young nurses that while very nice, were a bit inexperienced. I asked them if they thought I could have made any kind of progress in such a short time and they told me that it was unlikely since it was the first labour. I figured they were probably right so I thought I had many more hours of this intensity left (not realizing I was...

It was all so beautiful and everything I had envisioned for my last birth.

My birth story

It all began last Saturday when I was induced (due to a few different reasons). I felt like I was having random on and off contractions all week and had a feeling I had started dilating.

I had the first set of gels at roughly 8.30-9.00pm, the midwife checked my cervix and could feel it hadn't dilated (so I was wrong thinking I had started dilating during the week) 
After about an hour I started to get slight contractions. I couldn't sleep so I laid in bed and continued to watch the ranch while Roland got some zz.

As time went on it felt like the surges were getting stronger but I wasn't sure if it was all in my head or if it was really happening.

The midwife came back at 2am and inserted the second gels. I had only dilated 1cm. Pretty much as soon as the second gels were inserted the surges really ramped up and already felt close together.

I didn't wake Roland up and walked around the room on my own for about an hour or so as the surges became quite full on. I decided...

Lily’s birth was the most empowering, transformative and amazing experience

Positive birth story! ✨ (sorry for the long post 🤪)
8 days ago on the 7/6/21 my baby girl Lily was born (on her due date!) at 4:13pm weighing 4.014kg.
 
After a very long posterior (34 hours) and traumatic first birth with my first born, I was adamant to get the water birth I dreamed of and I have hypnobirthing and my amazing support team to thank for it.
 
So here’s how my birth story went... I woke up on my due date feeling perfectly fine. It wasn’t till about 11:00am that I noticed some super mild period pain twinges. I ignored them and went about my day. By about 12:00pm midday they started feeling more crampy (still mild but slightly more painful) and I decided to time them. They were consistently coming and going every 3-5 mins and lasting 30-50 seconds. It was then I realised I might be in early labour.
 
By about 2:00pm I was having to breathe through my surges as they had picked up in intensity. I was most comfortable bending over the birth...

Oh, how a weekend changed everything by educating me!

I was made aware of hypnobirthing and did the weekend course when I was 34 weeks pregnant. I honestly thought I was too far into my pregnancy to do it but for me, this was the best thing I could've done.

Before the course, I was scared my anxiety would take over in labour and I didn't want an epidural as I wanted to be in control of my body. Oh, how a weekend changed everything by educating me! 
 
In the weeks leading up to the birth I read affirmations everyday, even making my visitors read one with me on the way out, and listened to calming music. I wrote a birth plan and visioned how I wanted my birth to be. My anxiety turned to excitement.
 
On 14th March, at 39+3 weeks, I had braxton hicks quite strong in the afternoon, I knew something was happening. At 5pm I started to feel tightening and cramping which was bearable. I rang the hospital about 9pm who advised me to take panadol and get some rest.
 
By morning the waves had gone but my show and plug had...

I was excited but calm and so happy I trusted our decisions and my body!

I attended the Hypnobirthing course with Simone Hackett from Peaceful Birthing and I wanted to share my incredibly positive birth story with you. I used hypnobirthing techniques during my labour and in the lead up to my birth and I felt well informed because of the information in the course. 
 
My waters broke on Monday 1st March at 39 weeks +1 which I was so relieved about as I had horrible back pain and was getting impatient.  I had been drinking raspberry leaf tea, eating dates, expressing, bouncing on an exercise ball and spending time on all 4's to try encourage labour to start. 
 
We went into hospital and whilst they were monitoring me, the baby's heart rate became high and they began preparing me for a caesarean section.  Just as I was about to be wheeled into theatre baby's heart rate went back to normal and the decision was made to continue monitoring me.  I was on the CTG machine for around 7 hours while they were getting the right...

It was incredibly informative and helped both me and my husband to feel informed about our choice

My name is Kate and I completed your hypnobirthing class online via zoom. 


It was incredibly informative and helped both me and my husband to feel informed about our choice and calm as the birth was approaching.


We had some reduced movement leading up to the birth and turned down two requests to have an induction as we wanted to give our little babe time to come on her own.
By the 3rd time we had been in, the doctor was strongly advising that we considered an induction. We went home and emailed our hypnobirthing practitioner for advice and decided we would book the induction.


We went into hospital to get induced and after two days of trying naturally bubs wasn’t coming so it was suggested that we have a c-section. At this time I was exhausted and was overwhelmed with emotions. The midwife was amazing and helped me to calm down. I went and discussed the options with my husband and mum, my two wonderful birth partners, and we decided that we wanted what was best for bub.

As...
