I decided to use Hypnobabies because I knew I wanted as LITTLE medical intervention as possible.
I gave birth to my 1st child 6/30/08, after only 9 hrs birthing time ! I was completely FEAR FREE ! We got into our hospital room (after triage) at around 5:15 am and Owen was born at 7:53 am. Our 1st nurse even stayed past her shift to see Owen’s birth (nurses don’t get to witness natural births that often……..not to mention a quiet/PEACEFUL hypnobirth).
I only pushed for about 10 minutes. As soon as I was cleaned up I was up going to the restroom. Nobody could believe how quickly I was up & moving around, I felt fantastic.
The hospital staff fully supported our Hypnobabies birth. Each nurse whispered and none of the staff spoke to me (after the initial questions upon admittance). Our doula (and Hypnobabies instructor) was a true BLESSING, her support was priceless.
Our Dr. was supportive from the beginning of my OB visits. She stayed by our side (although she didn’t have to wait long), applied hot packs to my perineum, spoke in a very quite/re-assuring voice etc.
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING experience.
I would NOT CHANGE A SINGLE THING !
