We had the amazing support of a private midwife Meredith who was also our private midwife for Evelyn. I had a beautiful healthy pregnancy with no complications all the way through.
I decided to do hypnobirthing this pregnancy as I found myself a little apprehensive about giving birth again even though I had a beautiful birth the first time - it was a very long exhausting 18 hour labour and I really didn’t have the mindset or breathing techniques to ride my surges.
Hypnobirthing was honestly amazing and I would highly recommend it to any mothers who are pregnant. I learnt so much more about my body and the relaxation and breathing techniques are priceless and helped me so much in the lead up to birth and also during my labour and birth.
We had planned to have Jack at the Royal Brisbane hospital again in the private birth...
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’d just like the thank you so much your online course is amazing. I birthed my second son over 10months now at home it was so perfect I wish I would have had it on video.
After a 26hr labor with my first son(Des) and ending up in theatre having an episiotomy and forceps( resulting in Dessie’s neck being damaged)I wanted my second pregnancy and labor to be different I come across your online course.
I listen to the tracks every night at bedtime and practised the breathing techniques throughout my pregnancy. My partner broke his foot at work when I was 38 weeks so we switched to a homebirth it was the best decision we ever made.
Our baby was in a posterior position we tried everything to move before labor started but having undertaken your course I felt confident and trusted my body it would know what to do I was 41weeks and my doctor was happy to let me go to 42 weeks before intervention again I had faith and trusted that my baby would come when ready .
Having gone nearly 2 weeks over with my first baby, I decided to up my walking during week 38/39. At 38+6 my toddler and I set off for a huge walk in the morning.
I had aches from 1 pm that afternoon but thought nothing if it.
At 8 pm, after our toddler had gone to bed, I had a nice warm bath, listening to the tracks. Something told me to start packing my hospital bag. I didn’t finish but got most of it done.
At 9 pm I realised the aches were coming and going somewhat regularly and decided to time, just out of interest. They were 10 or so mins apart. This may sound strange but I was SO excited to feel real contractions. I’d previously only felt the fake contractions from being induced. One of my wishes for this birth was to feel a real contraction - wish granted! I had a few tiny spots of blood on my pad just before I went to bed (I’d had zero ‘signs’ before this). I decided to sleep and said to my husband that maybe, just maybe...
After an anxiety-filled first pregnancy and a frightening, fast and stressful first birth, I decided to look into hypnobirthing for my second. What I found was more than I could have ever imagined. My hypnobirthing pregnancy was calm and positive as I practiced my affirmations and techniques. I fell asleep every night listening to the[caption id="attachment_36569" align="alignright" width="241"] The moment we met baby Flynn[/caption]
relaxation tracks and felt joyful, positive and excited about my upcoming birth. My hypnobirth was so beautiful that 5 minutes after our hypnobub was born, I said to my husband " I want to do that AGAIN!". My two births could not have been more different and I am so grateful that I found hypnobirthing. Here is my story,
