I purchased your program two and a half years ago from the US when I was 3 months pregnant with my first boy, and I later gave birth to my sweet 8 lbs 1 oz hypnobub. I had an amazing experience with a natural hospital birth, but I knew that there were things I would do differently the second time around.
On December 11th 2020, now in England and pregnant with my second, I woke up around 8:30 am and started to feel surges. We had decided on a home birth since Covid regulations would not have allowed my husband to be present in the hospital delivery room. The atmosphere in the room was amazing: we diffused essential oils, played Christmas music, along with my hypnobirthing tracks, and my two year old sat close by, somewhat aware of what was going on.
I breathed through my surges and did my visualisations, confident that my body was progressing well with the labour.
My midwife arrived with a student midwife around 1 pm and after checking my vitals and baby vitals, she told...
This message is long overdue as we brought our sweet Norah into the world on July 4th. First, I want to start off by thanking you for making Hypnobubs. I cannot imagine what my birth would have been like without the mindset I had thanks to you, my nurses and midwife, my husband ,Christopher, and our little girl Norah.
At 3:30am on July 4th my water broke. I wasn’t quite positive it was my water so I laid still in bed for a little bit until I decided to switch sides I was laying on. This is when I knew, as I started to feel like I was peeing myself.
I rolled over to Christopher and woke him up. I said “Babe, babe, I think it’s my water.” He sprung up so fast! I just continued to lay there in bed while he gathered up our things to put in the car. I finally decided to get up. I had an infection in which I would need to come in as soon as my water ruptured, the doctor had told me. I wanted to labor at home as much as possible but the one...
Hope you had a lovely Christmas!
I just wanted to share my birth story and Hypnobirthing journey with you as it was such a positive experience for me and hopefully will help new mums out there too.
From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to research and educate myself and my husband as best as possible on my birth preferences and rights as a birthing woman. I always wanted a calm and safe birth with minimal to no medical intervention if possible.
I purchased the Hypnobirthing Australia online course at around 28 weeks pregnant, as I live in Melbourne and was unable to have face to face classes due to Covid-19 restrictions. The online program was so well set out and easy to follow. Melissa’s classes helped me to feel so informed and educated for my birth and the team of midwives at the hospital knew about Hypnobirthing and supported me in all of my decisions!
My waters broke at 6:30pm on a Thursday night and my husband and I did our best to just stay...
