Hypnobirthing - My Clients' Story.
"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.
