Michael is a Hypnobabies Instructor and had a beautiful home birth with her 1st and 2nd baby. She was hoping for another home birth with her 4th, but due to true medical need a hospital induction happened at 35 weeks.
I read Michael’s birth story and was impressed with how being an educated consumer, choosing your care provider wisely and standing up for yourself during your birth (even in less than ideal circumstances) you can still have a lot of freedom.
After 3 days with little or no sleep Michael did choose to get an epidural. Her mind just couldn’t stay focused enough to use her Hypnobabies. But honestly I am in AWE of her. And how awesome she got to catch her own baby!
You can read the whole birth story here with great pictures too. Be aware you may need your bubble of peace. But I think it is an inspirational story to see how moms in less than ideal birthing situations still can benefit SO much from Hypnobabies!
