Feedback from a hypnobirthing mum who had an unexpectedly quick home birth

Feedback from a hypnobirthing mum who had an unexpectedly quick home birth

 15th Dec 2021

To let you know that I gave birth to our little baby girl a couple of weeks ago. She arrived the morning of my birthday, and very quickly…Thankfully I’d had chance to put my hypnobirthing tracks on as my waters broke the night before, because there wasn’t much warning when my contractions started - she came before my midwife could get to us. I kept calm, confident and in control as I managed on my own until I had to call my partner, knowing that the baby was (remarkably) about to be born. My midwife was on speaker phone talking him through what to do; my body knew it’s part, and I trusted in all the work you and I had done as well as visualising my midwife with me at my son's birth.

What a special moment.

Congratulations to Catherine and Daniel on the birth of their baby boy using hypnobirthing

 3rd Sep 2021

Our little baby boy was born on 12th Aug at 17:04 and weighs 7.42lbs. My waters broke quite early, following 42 hours of labour....got to 9.5cm dilation but his head was stuck in the wrong place and would be difficult even with instruments. So had an emergency c-section in the end. What a journey! I didn't regret going through the labour experience though and felt I made the right decision at the time, based on the circumstances. I'm sure the hypnobirthing course and practices have helped!
