I was a participant of the online Hypnobubs course and I loved it! I live in a rural country town so I had no access to face-to-face hypnobirthing courses, so it was great to be able to learn about hypnobirthing and learn all the tools and techniques online, in the comfort of my own home. My husband and I viewed the lessons weekly, and we both felt very informed, confident and excited about the upcoming birth. I downloaded the tracks and listened to them regularly, which I definitely felt helped. So did the breathing down technique to practice while on the loo - haha!
On the night of Sunday the 18th October 2015, I began to feel a lot of pressure in my back and around my stomach and uterus. These became more regular and so on Monday morning we called the hospital who told us, as we were coping fine at home, to take our time and come in when we were ready. When we arrived at the hospital the doctor broke my waters in order to help move things along (I knew from the hypnobubs course...
Just wanted to thankyou for your hypnobirth course.
My hypno baby was born 8 weeks ago. I had a magical birth experience and as this birth was drug free I can remember everything, especially the moment when my beautiful baby slid up my chest.
Using the hypno techniques I was relaxed and didn't realise how far I was into labor until my partner pointed out that my surges were 3 minutes apart and lasting for two minutes.
I continued these techniques at the hospital in the birthing pool using your tracks in a dimly lit room with aromatherapy.
Such a beautiful, different experience to my first, as was trusting my body to know what to do.
Thank you, it was exactly the experience we were hoping for and I strongly believe that's why my baby is so chilled and happy.
I wanted to share my birth story as it was not what I had expected and thanks to Hypnobubs we were able to have a really positive birth despite a twist in the plot.
At 1:49am Saturday 12th December, Felicity Nanette came into the world via emergency C-section.
My waters broke just before 1:30am the previous morning after I got up to go to the loo. My husband and I live 130km from town so we rang the hospital and packed our bags then headed into town. I was confused at first that I didn't seem to be having surged, thinking if your membranes released that meant you were in labour. My amazing body was working on dilating my cervix before I went into labour and I was 4cm when I started labouring around 12:30pm. I used aromatherapy, acupressure and all the other hypnobirthing tips and tricks to help my body go into labour on its own and was very glad I didn't need to be induced. At 4pm we were admitted to the hospital. I used the TENS machine to help with my discomfit and later used a...
I had a real fear of childbirth, and so had been looking for calm birth resources from early in my pregnancy. I had heard of it and definitely wanted to look into it, as in many aspects of my life I believe I suffer from my mental state manifesting in me physically.
I live in remote northern WA so there wasn't any chance of me attending any formal classes so when I found your online course I was stoked!
I listened to the affirmations on my 20min drive to and from work each day and I have to say they really worked for me, calming my mind and giving me a real confidence.
My husband joined me in viewing all of the module videos and it really helped, having him understand what it was all about, and he was totally on board.
Most days I managed a relaxation session, and in the 4 weeks between finishing work and our little boys arrival I was able to re-watch all the online content again, and spend a lot of time preparing and settling my mind to a point that I was so excited for my baby to...
I wanted to share this wonderful and inspiring birth story with you.
I received a message from Hypnobubs online course participant, Nimity. She said,
"Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!
I birthed our sweet baby boy at home at 5:15am yesterday after a 3hr labour, it was amazing!
I'd prepped with your online course and found it invaluable to really relax and get into my own little sanctuary and when the time came your voice and words were so soothing.
You know the amazing part? Our son was 4.95kg (almost 11pounds!) - no tearing thanks to our wonderful midwives and controlled, relaxed breathing (thanks hypnobirthing!).
We are all so elated and thrilled to have experienced such a brilliant birth at home for baby #3 "
Hypnobubs mama, Nimity
Pretty awesome story, huh?
What difference the right mindset, support, knowledge, tools and preparation can make. ;)
I can't wait to hear YOUR awesome birth story, next!
Please keep in touch.
Hello Super Hypnobirther!
Life can get busy, can't it? How are you keeping up with the course?
If you have been busy and are feeling worried that you're not practicing enough - then I've got some little tips for you to help you keep your 'homework regime' on track.
1) You can listen to your affirmations at any time, even when driving or doing something else (but remember that you can't listen to any of the other relaxation tracks when driving, though!). Play your Affirmations track when cleaning, showering/bathing or when travelling. Take every opportunity to inundate your subconscious with positive messages.
2) Stick your visualisations, Affirmations Project or any other handouts that are useful up on your fridge or bathroom mirror. This way you are seeing them regularly!
3) Attach your Breathing/Bearing Down Poster to the back of the bathroom door.
4) Get into a routine of practicing your breathing before you get up in the morning and before you go to sleep. Let your pillow be your...
