My beautiful hypnobirth story and video!

Uncategorized Feb 08, 2017

Hi everyone! I'd love to share the hypnobubs birth story of our second baby boy, born at home on the 17th Dec 2016 at 3:16am, weighing 3.59kg & 53cm long 💙


During my first pregnancy, my membranes released at 39+5 & after 36 hours my surges still hadn't established so we agreed to an induction. After 10 hours of intense (9-10/10) surges I finally birthed our first son standing, into my husband's hands. It was an empowering experience but I did carry a lot of fear into that birth & I really hoped to avoid being induced next time & would love to birth at home if possible.

I found the hypnobubs course to be the best preparation in this second pregnancy. It took a lot of work for me to put societies fears about birth (& home birth especially) aside. Listening to the tracks & practicing the breathing & visualisation techniques before bed was so helpful in relaxing & letting my fears go!

So at 40+4 weeks, I woke up at 7am & immediately started having very mild (1-2/10) surges every 5 minutes that continued all day & into that evening. I was so happy my membranes were intact & my surges had started on their own, I was really enjoying them & visualised my cervix opening with each one. By 9pm I was pretty tired so decided to head to bed for a rest then at roughly 2am I noticed pain in my lower back even between surges so thought I'd see if a hot shower would help...well all of a sudden in the shower I had 3 much stronger surges on top of each other so I hopped out & then on the next surge my membranes released & I could feel my baby start to move down!

We quickly called our midwife, doula & photographer and they all arrived just 15 minutes before our baby boy was born! It is truly amazing what our bodies can do when we relax & breathe through our surges instead of resisting them. 

 All women need access to great childbirth education & Hypnobirthing. It makes all the difference!
