Checked in thinking they were going to send me home and the Dr. said I was 8 cm!
(First Time Mom!)
I do not know where to even begin because everything about the birth was such a great experience. I don't think I would have gotten through the whole pregnancy without Hypnobabies.
I went to see Joanne (ob/gyn) at 38 weeks and...
...when she checked I was 4 cms. I wasn't feeling any different so I went with my regular schedule and when I got home I got lunch, went to the gym, visited a friend and when I got in my car to drive home I knew something was different. I got home, cooked supper, took your advice in baking and just tried to " chill out".
Nick came home from work and all I could do was laugh because they were 5 mins apart and I was so excited. All this time having no pain just pressure:) I listened to pretty well all the tracks, got a warm bath, and read up on the birthing info from Hypnobabies. At 11 pm the pressure waves were 3 mins apart and 60 secs long. We decided to head on in to the hospital. I didn't go earlier because I was almost waiting for the intensity to increase.
We got to the hospital but not before Nick played "disk 4 track 1". Checked in thinking they were going to send me home and the Dr. said I was 8 cm! By the time I got to the birthing room I was 9! Time was flying by. I kept playing any track and I was able to listen to our nurse and handle the pressure with Nick’s help.
I tried the laughing gas but that sucked! I didn't need anything else because she was born at 2 am! It was the most amazing experience we have ever been through. Did I mention I did not need one stitch! Other nurses were coming in not believing it and Nick just explained it was our hypnosis.
We cannot get over the effect that Hypnobabies has had not only on our pregnancy but the way we view life. It has truly changed our lives and we are forever grateful. I would recommend Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis to anyone who is pregnant.
