Aubrey’s Powerful Birth with Hypnobabies
“Between waves, I felt amazing. I felt so much love and joy. During waves, I was somewhere else deep within myself. My husband was so enthralled with the whole process. He was so amazed with me. Before I knew it, my water broke, and I had gone through transformation (Hypnobabies term for transition) without even noticing!”

Almost a whole month ago, I gave birth powerfully to our beautiful baby girl! Hypnobabies has helped me in so many ways. I had pretty bad anxiety through the first half of my pregnancy, until I started Hypnobabies! It completely transformed my state of mind and perception. It helped relieve me of anxiety on multiple occasions.
For some silly reason, starting at 37 weeks, I started thinking “okay, any day now we will meet our baby girl!” I was wrong. Weeks passed. The 40-week mark came and went, my husband and I had so much time on our hands. I was going insane waiting for this beautiful girl to make her arrival. I was very patient at times with moments of anxious anticipation! But those weeks that passed were so special. My husband and I were so excited, we spent so much lovely time together, we had so many romantic dates and beautiful nature walks. 41 weeks came and went, my midwife noticed that Chloe hadn’t grown anymore in a while, so we got a NST which was fine.
42 weeks came by, and we got another NST along with an ultrasound and they said that she was underweight for what she was supposed to be at the time, so they thought the placenta may be getting too old. They no longer thought our home birth would be safe, and they recommended induction. I was very scared, and I cried, but I pulled myself together and asked if we could do the membrane sweep and let me go home to rest for the night and come back the next day. They performed the sweep and informed me that I was already 3 cm dilated, so the sweep was likely to be successful! They were right! We did not have to use any medication!
I’m sure the long walks I went on and bouncing on my birth ball helped. 3 am, my pressure waves (Hypnobabies term for contractions) started! They were strong and 1 minute long, but 8 minutes apart. I tried to sleep through them, but I could not, so I got out of bed quietly as to not wake my husband. I lay down on the couch with my eyes closed, relaxed as full as I could and when I felt a wave coming, I’d get up on my hands and knees and just ride the waves! I was also timing them all and listening to my birthing tracks like Easy First Stage (Hypnobabies main birthing time track). I really relished in the beautiful energy of the waves. Some of them were even pleasurable, because of Hypnobabies, my perception of them was so accepting and joyous! I knew each wave brought me closer to meeting my girl, although part of me didn’t believe it was actually happening!
At 8 am, I was at 411 and we headed to the hospital. My waves were so strong, I could not talk or stand up through them and my birthing sounds were so primal and strong and growing! My eyes were closed through most of the process. Between waves, I felt amazing. I felt so much love and joy. During my powerful birthing waves, I was somewhere else deep within myself. My husband was so enthralled with the whole process. He was so amazed with me. Before I knew it, my water broke, and I had gone through transformation (Hypnobabies term for transition) without even noticing! It was already time to push around 12 pm! I was smiling between the waves, and I was SO happy. The nurses couldn’t believe I wasn’t on any medication, they said it was the most successful hypnosis birth they’ve seen!
I didn’t think about time at all, it went so smoothly and quickly up until pushing. I felt like I wasn’t making any progress in pushing, even though I was. What helped was bringing out the mirror and seeing her little head coming out! I became so strong in that moment. Pushing felt like forever, and I couldn’t believe it when she finally came out at 1:57 pm. She is completely healthy and gorgeous! The feeling of touching her and holding her was indescribable. It was electric love. I was so stunned I couldn’t even cry until our song started playing, and then I was a baby lol! I was truly born that day. Everything before then in life didn’t even matter anymore. Life has truly begun for me now, too. I’ve never known true love until I saw her. Birth is such a powerful thing, and I am indescribably grateful Hypnobabies helped me make the most of it. Thank you
