Just writing to tell you about the safe arrival of Piper.
Piper arrived at 4:04 am on 14/6/13 (1week after her due date.) and after and 7 hour labour. Which I don’t know if you remember but 7 hours was as I imagined in your classes.
I hypnobirthed successfully for the beginning of my labour at home resting in bed and listening to the affirmations for easy birthing and the rainbow relaxation. I even managed to get some sleep!
Unfortunately on transition to hospital my concentration was broken. We arrived at hospital around 3am and Piper was born 1hr later no drugs no stitches and no tearing what so ever.
I believe hypnobirthing is what enabled me to achieve the natural drug free labour and birth I wanted. We had a stressful time leading up to the birth with us having to move house when I was 37 weeks with only 4 days warning (long story and I won’t go into it) but hypno birthing techniques (breathing and MANY a bath while listening to the rainbow relaxation) helped my stay calm and relaxed during a difficult period.
Thank you so much Kristy for introducing my family and I to Hypnobirthing!
Sherilyn, Dave, Lyla and Piper.
