Alicyn’s Beautiful Hypnobabies Hospital Birth
“We Arrived at the hospital at 4pm and he was born by 6 pm. My midwife, doula, husband and a nurse surrounded and supported me in the most amazing way. I felt it was a very spiritual experience for me. I had no interventions of any kind.”
Hypnobabies® – Natural Childbirth at its best!
Our baby boy, Beckett, was born June 29 at 5:50 pm. Our journey of health and wellness and what that really means has been a long and tumultuous one. Our views of health changed back in 2012 with a holistic MD who helped my husband regain his life and direct us to specialists who were from both eastern and western spectrums. We had a miscarriage in 2011 and so this recent pregnancy was initially surrounded with fear from losing Primrose and prior infertility issues. So, we started out (against my better judgment) going with the standard OB who categorized me high risk due to my age. I started to feel like my concerns were not valued as they didn’t fit into their box of practice.
I envisioned having a beautiful and natural birth, but since I did not feel heard, I did not trust the provider. I went with my gut and switched providers around 6 months. It felt rushed and scary to consider switching so late. But we found an amazing support group through our doula Andrea Showers and our midwife Lydia Rhodes. Andrea introduced us to Hypnobabies and I did the training for about 8 weeks. I didn’t tell many people because I didn’t want the negativity or doubt creeping in. The work paid off!
I had mild pressure waves start around 1 am Friday. I thought they were Braxton Hicks. I went to work until 1:30pm. Came home and waves were about 3-5 min apart. I had to tell my husband when I was having one as he could not tell. We Arrived at the hospital at 4pm and he was born by 6 pm. My midwife, doula, husband and a nurse surrounded and supported me in the most amazing way. I felt it was a very spiritual experience for me. I had no interventions of any kind.
Keep doing the training. I encourage you. Even when you think it is not working. Even when you fall asleep to the track. Keep it up! It will pay off! And for those who are searching for affirmation tracks, I have used Deepak’s chopra prior for meditations. He has free ones available all the time on the app. My husband noticed how much calmer I have been with the Hypnobabies training. I am actively seeking out ways to continue Affirmations in my day to day life.
