Molly's Birth Story
I'm a first time mum and our daughter Delphine (Delphi for short) is 6 months old - about time I managed to share my Hypnobirthing story!
Unfortunately my labour didn't go as I'd hoped, but hypnobirthing still helped us a lot and I look back on my birth as a very positive experience
We did the online course and gave birth in a public hospital.
She was born at 39wks3days on 8th April, at 5:52am weighing 3.525kg/7.7lb and 50cm long.
When I was 39 weeks and 1 day my waters broke at 2:30am. Unfortunately I didn't start surging on my own, so at 8:30pm that night I had to go to hospital to start antibiotic IV and stayed the night on the maternity ward. Tried all the tricks in the book to get labour going but to no avail
This was quite disappointing because I was really looking forward to laboring at home and I didn't get to.
Overnight I still didn't begin surges so in the morning my fiance came back, we were moved to...
