Hypnobirthing was the best decision I could have made in regards to birthing my babe!

Uncategorized Feb 17, 2021
FTM here. I went into spontaneous labour on Dec 29 at around 6pm, I was 41+0 (about 3 hours after deciding to have a stretch and sweep!). I laboured for about 20 hours at home before labouring 4 more hours at hospital.
 
The first part of labour I spent resting in between surges, as they were quite far apart and mild. It was only really the last 6 hours that things got intense, and even then, I wouldn't say that I ever felt "in pain", it was more just pressure and tightening where you'd feel period pain. Breathing was honestly what I consider as being my main form of analgesia! Although warm water helped a lot, too!
 
My LO emerged the next day at around 6pm and her birth was beautiful and calm (the midwife came in and asked my birth partner if I had still been surging because she couldn't tell, it just looked like I was sleeping!). Bub was super chill the whole time, her heart stayed between 130 and 150 BPM, even as she was coming down the birth path. In fact, she...

Because of hypnobirthing, I knew my rights and I understood more thoroughly the process of birth.

Hi everyone,
 
I would like to share my positive birth story with you all as I loved reading them during my pregnancy .
 
This was my first pregnancy and our beautiful baby is thanks to IVF. For most of my pregnancy, I played out my own mother’s birth story as though it would also become mine... I had fears and beliefs around caesareans, inductions and not being able to breastfeed. I was wrong and was able to move past those beliefs and hypnobirthing is the main reason why.
 
Firstly, because of my strong preference to not be induced, I did have three acupuncture appointments in the three days leading up to my due date and it certainly ramped things up with my tightenings and discomfort I could feel a change going up a notch after each appointment.
 
Then at 2.30 am Tuesday 12th January 2021 ( exactly 40 weeks ) my membranes released. I hopped in the shower and my husband called the midwives to let them know. At this point I had no pains at all so the...

She said I was so calm and composed during my surges that she had no idea I was so far along.

Dear Melissa,

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...

I honestly could not believe what had just happened. It felt like I had the most amazing experience.

Hi guys!
 
Positive birth story:
 
We welcomed Adeline into the world at 311pm on the 20th Jan. 6 hours labouring all up. 37+1 weeks and 6.6 pounds.
 
I was in bed at 615am in the morning and ruptured my membranes spontaneously. My husband was out on a bike ride at the time so I called him to come home. I only had slight period-like discomfort at the time. I went back to bed for an hour with my tens machine on. I spoke with my OBGYN who came to the house on the way to work at 745. Everything was fine, but she wanted me to go to the hospital at 900am to have the monitoring put on and check things out.
 
At 900 I started having some tightening which I assumed were contractions and we started making our way to the hospital. At 945 the midwife told me I was in established labour and I wouldn’t be going home. Everything was very bearable at the time and my breathing was all I needed to get through surges that were 3 mins apart.
 
At 1130 we were...

So with everything I had left in me I pushed once and his head came out...

Hi Hypnomums!
 
I wanted to share my positive birth story with you. First-time mum - I started having period like pains on Thursday 21st at 2pm - I was 40 weeks and 4 days. I didn’t know if it was labour starting so just relaxed and tried not to get too excited! After an hour or two there was a definite pattern to them and they progressively got stronger so I knew this was it!
 
I had a big dinner that night and went to bed listening to prompts for birthing and surge of the sea on repeat. I laboured all night at home, doing my best surge breathing throughout and trying to rest in between. I hopped in the bath at around 2am to try and get some relief as the pressure was starting to become intense. My partner used light touch through every surge and drizzled water over me while in the bath.
 
At around 4am I asked my partner to call our midwife as I felt I was exhausted and wanted to go to the hospital to try some gas and get comfortable there. She advised that...

Hypnobirthing really kept me focused during the whole birth.

Hi everyone, 
 
Happy to announce the birth of Spencer Jay Willis 23-11-2020.
 
I completed the Online Hypnobirthing Australia Course at around 34 weeks while my husband and I were on our Babymoon in Terrigal. Just in time for the early arrival of Spencer as I was 35 + 6. 
 
I finished work on Saturday and went to a family BBQ on Sunday. In the morning I threw up and felt mild surges all day. I was fussy, uncomfortable and wanted just to be home. Reflecting back I believe I was in pre-labour. When we got home Sunday night I had a bath with some bath salts and slept in the couch for 6 hours.
 
My waters broke at 5am Monday 23rd Nov. I think my husband and I were in disbelief it was happening so soon as he labeled it ‘incontinence’ .
Surges kicked in soon after and I called my mum and the hospital. I had not even prepped a hospital bag yet (planning to do this today my first day of mat leave hah). I took I phone charger, two...

I had three pages of birth preferences and knew exactly what was going on at every moment thanks to Hypnobubs.

Hi Melissa!

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...

It was the most magical experience ever!

Hi Melissa,

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...

I had an impressively quick birthing experience, considering it was my first!

gas natural birth Dec 15, 2020

Hey there Melissa,

 
I had an impressively quick birthing experience, considering it was my first!
 
My surges started at around 8:30am 23rd November being regular at 5 minutes apart and lasting a minute as soon as they came on.
 
We went to my obstetrician appointment at 9:30am and told him I was in labour, so we popped over to the hospital to check in with one of the midwives. Because I was a week over due, I was hooked up onto the CTG machine to check bub was ok and to see my contractions. 
 
We left the hospital to go home again, only to be there for 45 minutes before my waters broke! By the time we got back to the hospital, my surges had become a lot more intense and within 15 minutes I was in the water bath (~1:15pm)
 
The midwives were absolutely amazing, keeping the bathroom dimly lit, hushed voices and only whispering affirmations to me to help me as the surges got more frequent and more intense.
 
I had gas and air (only 30%) to keep the...

ALL subsequent babes will be Hypnobubs and I can't wait to do it again!

Hi Melissa, 

I would love to begin by saying - THANK YOU! It has been 7 wonderful months since we welcomed our firstborn, Natalie, into the world via a natural and surreal hypnobirth.
 
It is quite funny looking back on that night. We arrived at the hospital and I was in my 'hypnobirthing zone' feeling relaxed and in control. Upon arrival, the midwife had incorrectly fit the monitor to my belly by accident and my contractions were not registering. Because I was also handling each surge so well and breathing through my labour, it seemed like they were a bit doubtful that I actually was in labour at all!
 
Luckily, my husband had been with me every step of the course and was my point of contact and biggest advocate throughout the entire process. He assured them that I WAS experiencing contractions and set about preparing the room to ensure I was able to keep in a state of calm and achieve the hypnobirth that I wanted.
 
At one point I finally asked to know how...
