We were very excited when we fell pregnant with our third child. After two C-sections we wanted to try for a VBAC and set out on a mission to learn as much as we could about achieving this. A friend suggested doing a hypno-birthing class to eliminate all fear and tension associated with previous births, stories, and other people’s opinions. We instantly loved the technique and practised everyday with our relaxation and breathing exercises. These techniques helped to calm baby, mum, and the entire family so we thoroughly enjoyed the peacefulness and tranquillity we could all feel. Along with these techniques we also took part in kinesiology, network care, acupuncture, with clean food and nutrition.
On the 31st January I woke like a normal day and began doing all the usual things we would as a family. I started to feel a few signs of labour progressing around lunch time and sailed through to the evening with ease. After dinner I ran a beautiful relaxing bath with our hypnobirthing music and oils feeling surges that were calm and relaxing. At about 10pm the surges were getting a lot stronger and at 11pm we made our way into the hospital. At 11.20pm our baby girl was born naturally, drug free and we actually delivered her together with no midwife or obstetrician. It was the most beautiful birth we could have ever imagined, and we are still so very touched by her wonderful arrival into this world.
Thanks to HypnoBirthing and Kristy for all your wisdom and teachings to make our dreams come true.
