Rose’s Perfect Hypnobabies Birth
“Rose was born just 9 minutes after getting to the birthing room. The medical staff could not believe how calm I had remained, and I am still in disbelief (2 months later) of the beautiful, natural, and perfect birth Hypnobabies allowed me to have.”

I can’t express the awe my husband and I (and medical staff) have after birthing my daughter using Hypnobabies. After having to change my wish for a natural birth with my first child due to pre-eclampsia, I was extremely apprehensive about birthing my second and really wanted to trust my body enough to experience a natural childbirth. As a full-time working mom, with an average commute of 1.5 hours and a 2-year-old, I was unsure if I had committed enough time to my Hypnobabies techniques to have a successful birthing time (Hypnobabies term for labor). I was WRONG! I completed all the courses but fell asleep during every track and did not always complete my Finger Drop practice each day. I was able to listen to my Joyful Pregnancy Affirmations during my commute, which helped me trust the time I had would be worth the effort.
When my birthing waves (Hypnobabies term for contractions) began, I continued through my day as normal, since I was almost a week past my Guess Date (Hypnobabies term for due date). As the waves became more noticeable, I decided to attempt to get some sleep and began listening to my Birthing Day tracks. I woke up about every 45 min to 1 hour and went back to sleep since the waves didn’t seem to be bothering me. At around 4:30am I noticed the waves had started to get closer together (about 10 min) so I woke up my husband, called my amazing Hypno-Doula, Amy, and began timing the waves so we knew when to head to the hospital. During this time, I continued to listen to my Birthing Day tracks and found I was still very comfortable. We left for the hospital around 6am and arrived right at shift change. During this time, my birthing waves had become much more frequent and found myself only focusing on the pressure waves and my Hypnobabies tracks even though I was interacting with some of the staff.
Once admitted for my initial assessment, I happened to notice the birthing wave monitor at the hospital for my last wave- it looked like a larger wave (based on what I had remembered with my son), although I felt as if I was still in the initial stages of birthing. Shortly after, the Doctor came in to check me- I was already at 9cm and my water broke as soon as she had finished!!! Everything happened so quickly that my husband, who had just left the room to run to the car to grab the cookies I had made for the medical staff, missed it all and returned just in time to realize our baby was almost here and grab our belongings to move rooms. I couldn’t believe it. Almost immediately, I felt the need to push, so I quickly switched my track and began pushing as I was taken up to my birthing room.
Rose was born just 9 minutes after getting to the birthing room. The medical staff could not believe how calm I had remained, and I am still in disbelief (2 months later) of the beautiful, natural, and perfect birth Hypnobabies allowed me to have. Thank you for allowing me this beautiful memory and I 100000000% know I will use Hypnobabies if we decide to have another child.
