3rd Time Hypno-Mom’s Powerful Hypnobabies Induction
“My OB was fantastic as she trusted all my urges to push, she said “If you want to push you push! “she really trusted me which I appreciated. So, I decided I was going to push this baby out fast as I was ready to be done! After 2 controlled pushes, vocalizing so I didn’t hold my breath, laying on my side, my baby was born!”

I went in to be induced after my BP was steadily rising and I had had a migraine all day. I had never had to be induced before so I was unsure of how I would handle it as pressure waves (Hypnobabies word for contraction) are supposed to be more intense. I listened to my Fear Clearing track (Hypnobabies track for releasing fear) which really helped to settle my nerves. To keep it short and simple, Pitocin was started at 10 pm, I was 2cm dilated. I started to feel very comfortable pressure waves around 12 am, which progressed to very intense pressure waves at 2 am, I was checked and was 5-6cm dilated. I listened to my Easy First Stage track (Hypnobabies’ main birthing hypnosis track) on repeat throughout my birthing time (Hypnobabies word for labor).
I continued my hypnosis tracks and tried to sleep, well by 3 am things were starting to get intense and I told my husband I wanted an epidural which I had never requested for my other 2 births. The nurse checked me and I was 7-8cm dilated. Luckily she talked me out of the epidural saying I was progressing so fast and handling pressure waves with such control; she knew I didn’t need it. I knew I was at the point of transformation (Hypnobabies word for transition) and I was almost done. I made the decision to keep using my Hypnobabies hypnosis tracks and stay the course.
My OB was called in fast and by 5 am things were happening so quickly I wanted to push, I had a small lip of cervix my OB held back while she instructed I could push past If I wanted, which I did. My OB was fantastic as she trusted all my urges to push, she said “If you want to push you push! “she really trusted me which I appreciated. So, I decided I was going to push this baby out fast as I was ready to be done! After 2 controlled pushes, vocalizing so I didn’t hold my breath, laying on my side, my baby was born!
The nurses were really impressed by how controlled my pushing was and I credit that to all my Hypnobabies training – knowing how to push and knowing what was happening with my body and feeling in control. If you’re thinking you can’t get through and induction naturally, well think again because you can! It’s always an amazing feeling having your baby on your chest after going through such a powerful experience!
