“I have no doubt that I have experienced the most miraculous and perfect thing that I ever will in my entire life! My twin’s birth was amazing on so many levels and I want to share my story. I chose to use the Hypnobabies method to be able to birth my twins naturally.” Through my dear friend Rachel and some spiritual promptings, I stumbled upon a Hypnobabies class taught by Talya Matheson. Hypnobabies teaches self hypnosis to re-wire the way we view birthing to a very positive thing and it teaches deep relaxation and how to use hyono-anesthesia. It also teaches very detailed and accurate information on the birth process and what our bodies can do! I soaked up every ounce of information like a sponge…it was exactly what I wanted to hear and it felt good! By the end of the course, I was craving a natural birth and had so much confidence in myself and my body! Thank you Talya! I finished the classes and had about a month to practice my techniques and get my birth team together. I hired Talya as my Doula and Jordan stayed by my side with all of my decisions. I was so excited to see what my birth story would be like! So without further ado.. Thursday started off as a normal day… Sleepy, uncomfortable, and excited that I was one day further. I was 35 weeks and a few days. I had a doctors appointment to go to that I went to with my mom. The doctor said that the babies looked really good! Both head down and cooperating completely. He even made the comment, “they could be born tomorrow and probably be just fine!” Heh heh… We went to lunch right after and while we were eating I noticed I felt a little crampy. I had had these feelings before and they didn’t hurt at all and they didn’t seem to be coming and going… Just kind of a general feeling. I usually felt that way when the babies were growing and my uterus was stretching so I just figured they were getting bigger. That night I had a huge dinner packed with protein and carbs and I had the thought, “this would be a good meal to eat right before I went into my birthing time” heh heh… Please see the rest of this fantastic birth storyHERE.
