This short, sweet, almost-born-in-the-car Hypnobabies birth story comes to us from Leigh Anne Hancock, Hypnobabies instructor in Nashville, TN! I had the pleasure of having Cristy and Casey in my most recent Hypnobabies class. Cristy’s guess date was three days after the finish of our last class. Casey asked during our birth rehearsal, “How do we know when to go to the hospital? I really don’t want to have a baby on the side of the road.” I’m thankful that Casey was able to think about what he might do in that situation.
Two days ago, Casey called to let me know that they had their baby. It was great getting to hear about a Hypnobabies birth from a Dad first. He supported his wife wonderfully by staying calm and confident. Here is the birth story from Mom’s prospective, with me filling in with Dad’s phone conversation comments. Congrats to Cristy and Stephen. ~Leigh Anne
Our Birth Story: Mom: Our baby was born on July 12, 2014 at 8:26 pm. Baby was 6lbs-10oz, 19 1/2 inches and was a…..BOY !!! Everett Jay! My birth was amazing. I can not imagine it going any better. I was at lunch with my mom around 2:30pm and lost my mucus plug. We went to her house and I started having light pressure waves.
I drove home and asked Casey to meet me. By the time I got home the waves were more intense. I put on a Hypnobabies cd, got in the shower and then laid down. At 5:30pm my pressure waves were only about 35 seconds in length, but two minutes apart. This confused me, and because I wasn’t in pain, so I waited. At about 7pm Casey heard me starting to “ahhh” and thought we should go to the hosptial.
Dad: Cristy wanted to do some last minute cleaning of the house, but I insisted that we needed to get to the hospital because of the sounds that she was making. To see how the story ends you can read itHERE.
