Jacqueline's Birth story.
 
After a caserean with my 2.5 yr old daughter, I really wanted a VBAC. And I'm so happy to announce that through hypnobirthing and empowering myself with knowledge I was able to get it.
 
My waters broke at 2:30pm. I breathed through the surges t hone untill 6pm ad we haded into hospital listening to the tracks on the way. Once there my husband set up the defuse and music and read aloud the affirmation during surges which made a huge difference as they got stronger.
 
I got to 12:30am and surges had slowed down to 2 per 10mins and I was starting to struggle, I found out later I was 8cm dilated but at the time felt I couldn't keep going, so I had an epidural at 1 am and rested until 3:30 (I was feeling a bit disappointed at this time as I originally didn't want an epidural but remembered I need to go with whatever turn it takes). with a small amount of induction drug to get me fully dilated, I was Fully dilated by 3am, the epidural wore...

✨My Hypnobubs positive birth story (first-time mum)✨
 
We had trouble conceiving and tried unsuccessfully naturally for 8 months before being referred to a fertility clinic due to my age (38 at that time). After an 18 month roller coaster of emotions and 4 attempts we fell pregnant via ICSI using a frozen embryo. The tears of pain suddenly turned to tears of joy after watching so many of our friends and family fall pregnant.
 
I wanted to try for a water birth at KEMH Family Birth Centre but I went into this birth not at all married to my birth preferences, and fortunately, this mindset assisted me all the way through. Nothing went as planned, but it didn’t really matter in the end, as my little one arrived safe and healthy 💕
 
I woke up around 5am on Friday 21 May with period like cramps. I thought felt some contractions around 10 mins apart in bed. I...

Not an everyday successful birth story.

Not an everyday successful birth story. But do want to put my experience there for other mums.
 
We had to induce the bub at week 38 because my HG hasn’t been able to give enough nutrition to the bub. My fundal height was really low and the doctor got worried. Bub born at 2.6kg so the doctor was quite right actually.
 
On the day of the induction, my cervix was only 1 cm dilated and it’s tucked behind the baby’s head which made the internal exam and breaking the water extremely hard. Thanks to Hypnobirthing, I was able to breathe through the whole thing. The midwife actually said I need to teach them how to focus and breathe and that my pain tolerance is incredibly high.
 
After the water break, started the drip and everything around 11:00 am. The contraction was getting stronger and longer with each dose increase. I managed until around 4:30 pm with visualisation and breathing, counting my breath and also used vocalisation when others start...

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...

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...

The Hypnobubs course prepares us to make empowered decisions.

Hi all,

I'm a FTM, my beautiful baby girl is now 3.5 weeks old. I wanted to share my birth story because it turned out completely different to what I had planned or expected going in. Sorry it's a long one!)

I started feeling surges at 41 + 3 and was cautiously excited as I had an induction booked 3 days later which I was hoping to avoid. I laboured at home for 1.5 days and when I was assessed at the hospital I was only 3cm dilated. They gave me the option to go home or start an induction process with artificial rupture of membranes and then synthetic oxytocin because my surges had been irregular (baby was posterior which I was told could cause this, as well as the intense back pain I was feeling with each surge). By then I was so exhausted from surges and lack of sleep that I chose to start the induction.

After a while on the synthetic oxytocin my surges were coming with almost no rest in between, and I decided I needed an epidural in order to get through the rest of the labour...

Sophie was due on Thursday 9/7/2020.
Monday 6th at around 4:30pm I started to get tightenings only at the front and 10mins apart for 20- 30seconds. I tried to relax had a bath and then went to bed to see if I could sleep. Around 10pm the tightenings had basically gone and nothing all day. I tried to keep moving and now was keen for baby to come out.

That night (Tuesday night/Wednesday morning 8th) at 1:30am started getting more tightenings 6-7mins apart and lasting 30 sec and monitored them until they fizzled out again at 5:30am.... Come on baby.

Finally after a walk with the dogs some lunch on Thursday 9th and a nap I felt tightenings a little more intensely and starting to pull from my back at about 2pm. I monitored for a bit and they were 2-3mins apart and lasting over 35sec.
I called my partner to let him know to come home and I think this might be it. Called my midwife that something's happening and then waited for the surges to be lasting closer to a minute.

By 5:30 I stuck on...
