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.

Finally, at 4:04 our sweet Lily came into the world!
