I received a wonderful email a couple of days ago about a positive Hypnobirth Birth!
Congratulations to this beautiful family. What a lovely, calm birth story. I am so pleased your classes helped when the time came. Thank you so much for sharing your birth story!
Just thought I’d let you know we had a baby girl who arrived on Friday 2nd August. Tiggy Ivy Palfrey. We are in love with her!
I had a reflexology session on Tuesday and the tightenings started on Weds (non painful). They started to become more powerful and frequent throughout the next day by the evening I was using a TENS machine which I kept on throughout the night. Friday morning my mucus plug had come away and I called the labour line as I hadn’t felt the baby move for awhile. I went into the Maternity Unit and the midwife monitored me for an hour and all was fine, they were expecting to send me home as my tightenings were every 5-10mins. The midwife offered me a sweep and I agreed but didn’t want to know how far dilated I was as I thought I still had along way to go, however she was so surprised I was 7cm so got transferred to the Haven Suite straightaway- I kept the Tens machine on for another hour then got into the birthing pool- 3 hours later she was born.
I just wanted to say I couldn’t have done it without practicing Hypnobirthing, I used the up breathing as soon as my tightenings started along with a flannel covered in lavender and clarity sage. Once we got in the haven we put on the hypnobirthing tracks dimmed the lights and created that calm environment. The down breathing was a massive help during the head crowning. My husband was a great support and encouraged me throughout and my midwife was amazing, understanding that were using hypnobirthing. I couldn’t have wished for a better birth experience.
Thank you so much for teaching us and taking the fear away from giving birth!
