Hypnobirthing is the best!
Two weeks ago we welcomed our second hypnobub into the world and had a calm, natural 15 hour labour.
The baby was calm the whole time and I was told that the atmosphere in the room was so calm that no one could tell when I was having surges or not :)
I used all the breathing, visualisations and affirmations from the hypnobubs online course and felt really supported and relaxed.
We spent some time in early labour walking around the neighbourhood block enjoying the night sky. I used a birth ball to sit comfortably and spent some time napping in between surges.
As the surges became more intense we went to hospital and my husband covered all the clocks, put on clary sage aromatherapy, put the affirmations around the room and turned on some relaxing music.
Everything progressed really well and my husband was a great support. I tried to breathe the baby down for 2.5 hours but eventually opted for vacuum assisted help because his head was tilted back which meant I needed extra help.
I used the breathing and the vacuum worked with the surges so it was all in unison. I managed to birth my baby easily, relatively pain free and didn't need any stitches. I walked out of the birthing suite holding my baby and was so grateful to hypnobirthing :)
I have made a speedy recovery and am enjoying my little man.
Thanks Melissa - the online course is wonderful!
