FREE COURSE PREVIEW & PREGNANCY RELAXATION MP3

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...

induction natural birth Dec 07, 2020

Hello Melissa,

 
When I got home after the birth of my little hypnobub, I really wanted to thank you and share my story. But I got so caught up with my busy life and put my email aside.
She turned one this weekend. It's about time I send it!
 
We chose to prepare ourselves for the birth of our second baby through your online course for two main reasons: the first was I wanting to achieve a natural birth (I had a good yet not drug free first birthing experience, and I realised afterwards that a lot could have... should have been different because I hadn't been properly informed and prepared), the second was for my husband to feel empowered as a birth partner with tools in his pocket (he didn't really know what to do the first time). We really enjoyed the course. That bit about how our brain works is a good piece knowledge even beyond birth preparation.
 
At 40 weeks+3 days I met with my obstetrician who, after examining me, was sorry to let me know that my cervix was...

I was able to accept the twists and turns that occurred and was excited to finally meet my baby girl.

My guess date was the 23rd of June 2020, I went to my 41 week appointment and they wanted to attempt to rupture my membranes at 41 +5. On 41 +3 I had a stretch and sweep to try and bring on labour as I wanted to avoid as much intervention as possible. The night of my stretch and sweep I started to get some very light surges they were strong enough to wake me up but not painful, they were irregular and continued into the following morning. I was able to continue with my day as normal.

At about 1pm things started to ramp up and I was having surges that were lasting between 1 and 2 minutes and about 4 minutes apart. I called the hospital at 4pm to get their opinion, they said I was in active labour but because my surges were still a few minutes apart and still between 1:30 and 2 minutes they suggested I stay home and rest as much as possible. I laboured at home until 3am when I no longer felt comfortable and we decided to go into the hospital.

We arrived at the hospital at 3.30pm and I...

FTM, accidental home birth.

This is super long as I wrote it out to help me process it all.
 
On Friday morning I woke up and had what I thought was a small leak and a bloody show and thought I was in the early stages of labour! I saw my midwife that afternoon who checked my waters and advised they were not leaking and it was just my mucous plug and my cervix were still shut completely.
 
Throughout Saturday I lost more of my mucous plug and it seemed to be getting more watery, I was planning on following up with my midwife on Sunday to check again it wasn't my waters...
 
9:30pm I felt my first niggle but wasn't sure if it was just trapped wind 🤣 I tried to sleep but I just couldn’t and by 11pm I knew that it wasn't wind and probably not braxton hicks.
 
I left my husband in bed and went and watched Schitts Creek to keep those oxytocin hormones going and bounced on my gym ball. By 2am they were becoming obvious and I was bleeding a bit more so that’s when I called the...

I was able to keep my head thanks to all the techniques I learned despite the hectic circumstances .

Hypnobubs birth story.
 
Trigger warning: my birth had a number of special circumstances which led to some instrumental help and a distressed baby. This could be traumatic to some.
I wanted to share how I used my hypnobirthing tools to help me achieve my VBAC. It's a long one so strap in!
 
Tuesday the 10th Nov in the morning, I felt and heard 'POP' lying in bed and jumped up. A little gush of fluid came out and continued a steady trickle. The hospital asked me to come in to confirm waters had broken as I'd had no real surges yet. I told my husband to take the day off work and we had a pretty normal morning just getting ready for the day and packing the toddler off to Gramma's.
 
About 2 hours from waters breaking I had my first surge. They were well spaced apart, so on confirming it was my waters, the hospital sent me home and asked me to come back in 18 hours (10pm).
 
I went home and just listened to music, used my breathing and visualisations,...

The breathing definitely got me through but also the positive mind training

Positive birth story.
 
I decided to do hypnobirthing for my second as my first birth was quite traumatic.
A bit of backstory: my first birth was an induction at 40+10. I was 2cm dilated so my waters were artificially broken and contractions came on strong, I was not prepared for that. Used the gas, had morphine and 3 failed epidurals. I could still feel everything on the left side of my body. I was crazy out of my mind and lost all control. I was stuck on my back on the bed. Birthed after 18hrs on my back. Baby got stuck with shoulder dystocia, emergency called they got her out and she was sent to special care for a few hours. She was 3.4kg (8pound 4ounce). I was disconnected and my body was a war zone. I never wanted to do that again.
 
Fast forward 2years and I was pregnant with a little surprise. I knew I did not want a repeat of the first birth so started practicing hypnobirthing about half way. This time I got into the midwifery group practice and knew how...

I feel like I could do this all again because of the incredible hypnobirthing techniques that I armed myself with.

My Hypnobirth Story

Zara Maeve born 29/10/20 at 2:49am. 2856grams and 47cm long.

I decided to sign up to the hypnobirthing Australia course online early on in my pregnancy as I knew I wanted a calm and controlled birth experience (I had heard many good things about the course). I committed to listening to the MP3s regularly and practiced my breathing throughout my third trimester. I was feeling confident and ready going into the birth of my first bub.

My labour started just before 5pm last Wednesday with surges that felt like period pain. I had similar surges at 3am that morning but they disappeared and I didn’t feel any for the rest of the day until now, so I wasn’t sure if this was the real thing or false labour pains so I carried on with my evening.

I started cooking dinner around 5:30pm but I could feel that the intensity of my surges was definitely building and they were getting longer. Then I noticed I had lost some of mucus plug while I was pottering around in the...

It empowered me to make decisions and decline interventions I didn't think was necessary

I just wanted to share my experience with Hypnobirthing Australia. THANK YOU!!

I gave birth 3.5 months ago in the middle of the pandemic. We had planned a homebirth due to fear COVID-19 and at the time- not knowing how the virus was going to affect the hospital system in Australia. At 37 weeks - we made the decision to home birth with our group practice midwives. This was my second pregnancy. My first birth was through private obstetrics which failed us. A stressful delivery, no birth confidence which concluded in a NICU baby due to infant stress (meconium aspiration), and a domino effect of medical intervention including an epidural. This first birth left me with birth trauma, which impacted breastfeeding, and resulted in post-natal depression.


My second pregnancy I was determined to have a completely different experience. And opted to have give birth through a group practice midwifery. At 37 weeks, I started the hypnobirthing course, as I had decided to home birth and knew I...

I didn’t even make it to the birthing suite!

My little Hypnobub - Isla Mae
 
This was my second baby and second hypnobirth. Whilst this was a much quicker arrival to the world, it was still just as magical thanks to hypnobirthing.
 
My labour commenced with regular surges 2 mins apart at midday whilst I was playing at the park with my first hypnobub. We were relaxed and had the park to ourselves so we continued to play as I breathed through the surges. After about 30 mins and the surges continuing at a regular pace, I thought it was best to head home and get ready to meet baby #2.
 
I phoned my partner who met us at home and we had lunch together - the last time as a family of three. I started to breathe through the surges on my birth ball while listening to calm music in the background. It was a beautiful peaceful time at home and we all waited to welcome baby. My son kissed my belly and told me it “will be ok mum” and he went off to bed. I cried when I put him to bed as I knew this was the...

Had only really watched the introduction .. my waters broke at 1 pm

Short and sweet post from me as I’m a little busy now 😂... (started out to be)
 
I purchased the Hypnobirthing online course on Saturday night in the hope to use my maternity leave wisely by educating and preparing myself for birth.
 
Had only really watched the introduction .. my waters broke at 1 pm on Monday and I gave birth to my 36week6dayer at 5:55pm.
 
Thankfully I had downloaded the app and played the first mp3 over and over again from my drive to the hospital all the way through delivery.
