Hypnobirthing

About My Birth

After gaining my child birth in hypnotherapy qualification in 2015 I was always excited about the birth of my son Ralph. I found out I was pregnant in Jan 2018. I made time to listened to relaxation audios for me and my baby and I regular reminded myself of positive birth affirmations and how incredibly strong the human body is.
Having the ability to be able to relax your body and mind is vital whilst in labour, which I later discovered for myself.
I gave birth to my son on his due date which was Saturday 6th October. On the Thursday before I went to see my midwife who gave me a membrane sweep, I had heard mixed reviews about sweeps and whether they work or not but I felt ready to have my baby and told myself I wanted this to work.
Later that day at home my surges started, I didn’t have a birth plan all I knew is that I wanted a natural vaginal delivery in hospital with no drugs (if this was even possible).
My surges started slow and I was in early labour for around 36 hours (I had contractions on and off for this whole time).
I wanted to stay in the comfort of my home for as long as possible, so I used my relaxation and breathing techniques to help me do this, I bounced my birthing ball, had several baths, made sure I kept hydrated and ate when I could. I tried to relax as much as I could during this time and used an app on my phone to track my contractions.
I had rang the hospital on the Thursday evening to tell them my contractions had started and they told me to only come to the hospital when they were at least 50 seconds long and 4 minutes apart and regular.
On the Saturday morning, after a very sleepless night I managed to eat some breakfast in-between my surges and got myself ready to go to hospital. When they became longer and more regular I knew it was time to go to the hospital. I arrived there about 11.30am and just as I imagined stopping in the car park and in the corridor having surges with my other half doing an amazing job helping me focus my mind to ride the pain out till they stopped.
I was checked over immediately by a midwife and I was 6 cm dilated and taken straight to labour ward to have my baby. By 4.30pm I was 10cm and I was ready to push, 1 hr 30 mins later which included some gas and air, lots of positive talk from my midwife and my other half our baby boy entered the world. I was full of mixed emotions: relief, excitement, utter exhaustion and pure love.
It really was a magical moment, just as I had always dreamed 🙂
