Hannah’s Hypnobabies Change of Plans C-Section with Covid

“Because I was COVID positive the OR was very different and I couldn’t have my tracks or headphones with me but I used them before going back and continue to take deep breathes and use my hypnosis cues like Relax (Hypnobabies cue for deepening hypnosis) and Peace (Hypnobabies cue for instant physical comfort) during the C-Section to stay positive and calm.”

A week ago, today I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy 💙 while my birth was nowhere close to how I planned it; it was still beautiful thanks to my Hypnobabies tools. I found out little man was breech at 36 weeks, I did Spinning Babies and all the home remedies I could find to get him to turn (only later to find out he physically couldn’t).

At the end of 37 weeks my doctor and I decided I was an ideal candidate for an external version, I used my Hypnobabies tools to help me manage the pressure throughout this procedure. The external version was unfortunately unsuccessful, so I went back to home remedies to ease little man into the right position. At 39 weeks I was diagnosed with COVID after being back at work, and baby boy was also still breech.

My doctor was getting concerned about me being in my birthing time (Hypnobabies term for labor) with COVID, a breech baby, and a recent discovery of an uterine anomaly (my uterus is heart shape and my little guy was stuck in one of the rounded parts meaning it was very very unlikely he could physically turn). We scheduled my C-Section (my biggest fear) and I prepared for the 11th by listening to the Fear Clearing track (Hypnobabies track to release fear) A LOT.

Because I was COVID positive the OR was very different and I couldn’t have my tracks or headphones with me but I used them before going back and continue to take deep breathes and use my hypnosis cues like Relax (Hypnobabies cue for deepening hypnosis) and Peace (Hypnobabies cue for instant physical comfort) during the C-Section to stay positive and calm. My husband was a huge help with this. Luka was then born at 12:31pm and my birth plan changing didn’t matter anymore because I had him and we were both safe and healthy 💙
