Tiffany’s Hypnobabies Hospital Induction
“I rode those pressure waves (Hypnobabies word for contraction) for 3 hours very comfortably! At 7:30 the nurse checked me and I was already at 7cm. The pressure waves began to pick up! I imagined my Special Safe Place, used the Peace cue (Hypnobabies cue for instant physical comfort) and powered through.”
Hypnobabies® – Natural Childbirth at its best!
My Hypnobabies birthing story begins April 23rd, my second birth but first using Hypnobabies! My first I was induced, received the epidural and had the worst recovery process I could imagine. Due to the epidural, the day after my first son’s birth I had a horrible spinal headache that lasted a week. Because of this, I decided this time around I had to do something different and stumbled upon Hypnobabies.
I can’t even possibly express how thankful I am for this course! Ladies … I was not the perfect student but completely committed, I did the course material, I listened to the tracks, there were times I fell asleep, and there were a few days I missed, my husband was not as supportive with the program as I had seen others be, so I was basically on my own! So, if anyone out there has doubts, YOU CAN DO THIS!!
I was induced for medical reasons, at 38 weeks, at 4:00 am they began my Pitocin nothing else was needed because I was already dilated at 3.5cm. I rode those pressure waves (Hypnobabies word for contraction) for 3 hours very comfortably! At 7:30 the nurse checked me and I was already at 7cm. The pressure waves began to pick up! I imagined my Special Safe Place, used the Peace cue (Hypnobabies cue for instant physical comfort) and powered through.
Once I got to 8 cm, the nurses put me on my back with the peanut ball and this is when I fell out of my hypnosis, I couldn’t concentrate. I turned to my husband in a panic, he walked over gave me a pep talk and started rubbing my back (which felt amazing) let me remind you he was not supportive of the class ——until my birthing time. And he was amazing. I was in so much discomfort on my back I asked if I could turn on my side again.
The nurses came in and turned me and I was able to get myself back into hypnosis and focus on my waves. Before the nurses could even leave the room I felt the urge to push and new it was time!! 5 pushes later… My hypno-baby was born at 11:30 am on 4.23.19 without the epidural exactly how I envisioned it would be! My birthing time total was only 7.5 hours. It would not have been possible without Hypnobabies and I am FOREVER grateful for this experience. My recovery has been a breeze compared to my first and I got to enjoy every moment of the experience.
