Originally, we had planned to be at a birth center for his arrival. At 37wks with the pandemic catching momentum, we decided to switch to a home birth at our cabin in the woods. (The cabin just happened to be my Special Safe Place 🥰)
Being a first-time mom, I was nervous about a home birth. If it weren’t for Hypnobabies, I would not have had the confidence to make this move. The cabin is in a rural area and a home birth midwife was a little hard to find. Fortunately, we found one who services the area. (She also just happens to be a hypno- doula 🤩)
As we passed the 40th week, we reminded ourselves that babies are born on their birth days. Week 41 came, and we remained confident that he would make is debut in his own time. As week 42 approached, it was time for us to consider induction. 😢
41wk5d: 1cm dilated 😥
41wk6d: 1.5cm dilated, partial membrane sweep, 1oz castor oil, waves (Hypnobabies term for contractions) began that evening. (It also just happened to be a full moon)
42 wks: Baby is born healthy and happy after a 16hr birthing time (Hypnobabies term for labor), and 30mins of pushing.
My Light Switch stayed Off (Hypnobabies tool for entering and being in hypnosis) for the most part, other than bathroom trips and midwife communications. During transformation (Hypnobabies term for transition), I was sent to a different realm and became a strict observer of my body. I focused on my breath, relaxing, and allowing my body to do the work. Pushing came naturally and was easy, with some discomfort at crowning.
Every aspect of this experience seemed to fall into place perfectly. I’m grateful for Hypnobabies and the knowledge and tools it has equipped me with.
Wishing all mamas, a healthy and comfortable birth! 🤗💕
