Ashly’s Wild, Amazing Hypnobabies Birth
“We decided to get some supper at Olive Garden and through the whole dinner my husband was timing my pressure waves (Hypnobabies word for contractions) while I focused on my Peace Cue (Hypnobabies technique for instant physical comfort) and directing my Hypnobabies hypno-anesthesia all around and over my cervix and uterus, and at that point my waves had really stayed the same intensity and pretty easy to manage.”
Hypnobabies® – Natural Childbirth at its best!
This being my second birthing I expected it to go quicker, but never as fast as it was! We had a 2 hour drive to our birth center and left early on in my birthing time (Hypnobabies word for labor) just to be sure I would be happy to comfortable on the ride and have plenty of time to get there and ready. We arrived at the birthing center at 5 pm, and after being checked found out I was only dilated to a 1 cm and 60% effaced.
I was really disappointed because I knew my waves were pretty easy and tolerable then and that they were going to get much worse, and I did get pretty nervous and scared. They couldn’t admit us yet, and suggested we get a hotel. Well we didn’t get a hotel because I felt it wouldn’t be long and we would just waste money getting a room. We decided to get some supper at Olive Garden and through the whole dinner my husband was timing my pressure waves while I focused on my Peace Cue and directing my Hypnobabies hypno-anesthesia all around and over my cervix and uterus, and at that point my waves had really stayed the same intensity and pretty easy to manage.
We left the restaurant and decided to go somewhere to walk around, I had a wave in the car at 7 and felt my water break. We headed back to the birth center to see where I was and if it really was my water. By the time I got in I felt like I needed to poop, they got me on the exam table to test my water and I had one big wave that I really felt like I was going to poop and puke and I remember telling myself “Your body is needing to push, don’t hold it in, just push with your body” the midwife came in and confirm that baby was right there, we raced down the hall to the birthing room, I barely made it inside the room, my husband held me up and in one push all of him came out, not two separate waves.
He arrived at 7:54. I had my Easy First Stage (Hypnobabies main birthing day hypnosis track) playing in my ear but moved so quickly I didn’t even get a chance to switch to Pushing Baby Out (Hypnobabies special track for pushing)! I 100% believe Hypnobabies is what kept my whole birth so easy and manageable and helped me move also so quickly! I went from 1 cm to having him in just 3 hours! It was not the perfect peaceful water birth I had imagined, but honestly it was so amazing to get him out so fast and have him in my arms!! Thank you Hypnobabies! I will definitely be using this for my next and suggesting it to everyone!!
