Thank you for giving me the confidence to bring my gorgeous boy into the world.
I was 39+3 when I woke at 4 am to the sudden feeling of constipation and needing to go the toilet after a little while I noticed the sensations I was having were actually contractions. I timed them for at least an hour or two before being sure and notifying my family. My contractions were then 10 minutes apart. I put on my hypnobirthing audio tracks, started to get dressed & packed any last minute things I needed for the hospital. Another hour passed of practising my breathing and listening to the affirmations track and my contractions had moved to 4 minutes!
We made the trip into the hospital and my contractions were very intense and very close together. I was wheeled into the maternity ward with a couple of contractions on the way. By the time I got to the vaginal examination to see how far along I was, I was 9cm dilated!! Baby was wasting no time. We made our way to the birthing suite and I stood in the shower while the birthing pool filled. When it was ready I hopped in and was probably in there for an hour.
During that time the midwife read that babies heart rate had dropped slightly so I was told to get out of the pool so baby could be monitored. I was so close to baby coming out that it was disheartening but I knew baby was most important so I awkwardly left the pool and got on the bed. I laid on my side while Josh held my right leg in the air and I pushed! Baby boy was out in five pushes & entered the world at 10.50 am ️
I honestly can’t believe that I was able to go through a natural vaginal delivery with no pain relief but I know that it was because of the hypnobirthing techniques I learnt that made it a possibility for me.
