Drug Free Hypnobirth
"Baby Benjamin was born weighing 7Ib exactly. I had an amazing drug free labour and straight forward birth in the birth centre at Queen Charlottes.
Labour pains started on Thurs in the early hours. I managed at home for as long as possible using hypnobirth techniques (predominantly self hypnosis using the recorded sessions as a reminder) and a tens machine too for distraction! I finally gave in and went into the birth centre at 11pm Thurs eve. The midwife examined me and was amazed to find I was 9cm and ready to push! Benjamin was born at 2:09am Friday morning without any drugs or intervention.
I can honestly attribute my clear mind and determination to your sessions. They really gave me such focus & confidence I could manage the pain. I can say without hesitation I'd do it all again! Here's a picture of our little man when he was just a few weeks old. He's doing really well, just approaching 8 weeks old and smiling away happily!
Thanks again for your guidance and expertise!"
My Calm Hypnobirth
"We had our baby boy on 13th July, he weighed 7.14 but now he is almost 3 months and weighs a huge 14lbs!! I was so calm through the whole process, listening to my mp3s!.
I felt in control, confident and totally 'in the zone'! The midwife even asked if I had done hypnobirthing! The labour was great-not that painful at all. Throughout the contractions I used gas and air to help regulate my breathing. I don't think it really did much for pain relief as didn't notice the difference when I wasn't using it.
When it was clear that he wasn't going to come out unaided I stayed really calm and didn't panic at all. I'm sure would have been something that would have stressed me out if I hadn't done hypnobirthing. After pushing for 2 hours and he wasn't moving I was taken to theatre and given a spinal tap injection and forceps were used to get him out as his head was side ways.
I can honestly say I actually enjoyed the whole process of childbirth!! Managing the pain much better than I thought I would. I think that was due to hypnobirthing; because I was so calm during the labour I was able to recover quicker and made going home with a new baby less stressful as well.
