First Time Mom Ashley’s Hypnobabies Home Birth
“The tracks were amazing as I began to experience feelings I hadn’t before! My hypno-doula showed up around 12:30 and immediately assisted me with my Peace and Relax cues (Hypnobabies cues for instant physical comfort and deepening hypnosis) during each wave (Hypnobabies word for contraction).”
Hypnobabies® – Natural Childbirth at its best!
Introducing my hypno-baby Dženan Chambliss born at home in the water on Sunday, July 2 at 8:38 pm. 8 lbs 10 oz 19.5″ and perfect in every way!
I awoke at 3:00 am at 40+4 with stronger pressure waves (Hypnobabies word for contraction) than any of the practice waves I’d been having, and thought this could be it!
So I put on my Hypnobabies hypnosis tracks and ended up sleeping through them for another 4 hours or so. At around 8 am I noticed they were getting more powerful and knew today would be it! I started timing them, ate a good breakfast and got a shower in while playing my Birthing Day Affirmation track. I live alone, so about 9:30 am I called my mom and sister to come over and began my early birthing time tracks Birthing Day Affirmations and Easy First Stage (Hypnobabies main birthing day hypnosis track).
The tracks were amazing as I began to experience feelings I hadn’t before! My hypno-doula showed up around 12:30 and immediately assisted me with my Peace and Relax cues during each wave. My sister ended up carrying around my bright orange hypno-anesthesia towel around on her shoulder as I found comfort in that.
They continued to get stronger, a sensation I feel I couldn’t have prepared for being a first time mom! I was very vocal, but apparently (I’m told) I was quite serene in between each birthing wave. My hypnosis tracks were constantly playing for me all throughout the day and served me as a powerful guide and something to focus on.
After about 12 hours of active birthing time I pushed for an hour when I felt the urge and out he came! It was an instant relief and I suddenly felt very normal, like I had just come out of another dimension ?
It was the most intense day I’ve ever had, but I’m so proud to say I had the birth I envisioned at home in the water completely naturally. It’s fun to put on the Hypnobabies tracks or relaxation music now and see my baby respond to it. I think he like Kerry’s voice better than mine!
