My name is Kate and I completed your hypnobirthing class online via zoom.
It was incredibly informative and helped both me and my husband to feel informed about our choice and calm as the birth was approaching.
We had some reduced movement leading up to the birth and turned down two requests to have an induction as we wanted to give our little babe time to come on her own.
By the 3rd time we had been in, the doctor was strongly advising that we considered an induction. We went home and emailed our hypnobirthing practitioner for advice and decided we would book the induction.
We went into hospital to get induced and after two days of trying naturally bubs wasn’t coming so it was suggested that we have a c-section. At this time I was exhausted and was overwhelmed with emotions. The midwife was amazing and helped me to calm down. I went and discussed the options with my husband and mum, my two wonderful birth partners, and we decided that we wanted what was best for bub.

We had planned (or more so hoped) for a natural drug free birth. Our doctor had been trying to get us to induce at 39 weeks due to bub measuring in the 99th percentile at 36 week scans. We refused and tried to push on for a natural birth. Our hospital allows us to go through till 10 days past due, so we thought we had plenty of time to try and get bubs to come on his own. From 38 weeks, we tried everything to get him moving along, nothing worked.
At our 41 week midwife appointment, as a last ditch effort, we tried an S&S, my cervix was so closed that it couldn't even be attempted, I was told my external cervix was at about 1cm dilated. So at this stage, we were booked in to start the induction process at 9 days over due. The plan was to go in over night, attempt the gel and if that didn't work, waters to be released the next morning and then the drip started after.
