Joan’s Perfect Hypnobabies Hospital Birth
“Everyone who witnessed our birth was in awe and my midwife just couldn’t believe how it easy it was for me.”
Hypnobabies® – Natural Childbirth at its best!
Started Hypnobabies at 33wks and had my sweet girl on 9.8.19! It was the perfect birth, everything I had hoped for especially after my first daughters unmedicated but Pitocin induced birth. This program is unbelievable! I wasn’t even sure it was THE day but because I had consistent birthing waves (Hypnobabies word for contractions) about 10 minutes apart all day I decided to go in and get checked, I walked into the hospital at 6cm dilated, still laughing, smiling and chatting.
We got settled into the room we would birth in about an hour after arriving and I decided to do an inversion to help my girl into position, my water broke after the inversion, I was still able to comfortably maneuver and walk around. My midwife did another check and I was at a 9cm, fully effaced.
My midwife had the staff prepare the room as she said, “I don’t think we’re going to get any big cues that she’s ready to push!” Still laughing and chatting about how unbelievable this birthing was! Then I felt a pushing wave come on, I turned on my Pushing Baby Out track (Hypnobabies track just for pushing) and stood at the foot of the raised bed and pushed my baby out, comfortably with my Peace cues (Hypnobabies cue for instant physical comfort).
I did feel some burning sensation as she crowned and with her shoulder push but NO PAIN in between each pushing wave and immediately after she was born I was completely comfortable despite having a 9lb 6.6oz baby and a second-degree tear. She was born less than 3 hours after arriving at the hospital. Unbelievable! Everyone who witnessed our birth was in awe and my midwife just couldn’t believe how it easy it was for me. “You would have never known you were having a baby” “THAT was a physiological birth!” “Thank you for letting us be here, we’ve never seen anything like that”. Thank you Hypnobabies!!!
