Lily’s Hypnobabies Home Waterbirth Video
I was trying to relax as much as possible in early birth time to conserve energy. Around 2:00 my midwife came over as the waves were getting more intense (But still totally manageable). I was still using my peace cue. After she got there, I got in the birth pool and started playing my tracks out loud. My husband poured water on my back with each wave. Around 3:00 I started feeling slightly nauseous and knew I was in transformation (Hypnobabies word for transition).
As the waves got stronger, I would go to my special safe place and talk to my daughter. I told her she was doing a great job and that she would get to meet her sister and dad soon. Around 3:45 my body started pushing, so my husband asked the midwife and birth team to come in the room. It was amazing how primal it felt, with my body automatically pushing.
