Just wanted to thank you for all you taught us in hypnobirthing and update you with our story...
My waters broke (in true movie style) in bed at about 00:45, I hopped into shower and contractions started straight away, after a while on the bed I decided to have a bath, it didn't take long for things to ramp up so we arrived at the Princess Ann at 03:15 and 9cm dilated!!! In the pool on gas and air for abit then on the bed breathing through and our little boy was born at 05:08 on the morning of 21/11/17 (2 days 'early') weighing in at 8lb 10oz.
I focused on my breathing throughout (there was the odd swear word) but honestly wouldn't have mentally been prepared or capable of our amazing birth without hypnobirthing. My husband was amazing and the midwives couldn't believe it was our first baby. Would describe it as intense rather than painful and actually quite enjoyable (cringe) when I think about it.
Home with a dominos pizza by 5 o clock this evening as a little family unit. I can't believe my luck and just wanted to thank you so much for all your support. I would definatly recommend hypnobirthing to other parents and will be having a refresher for next time.
It was truly unbelievable. I'm going to be shouting it from the rooftops.
Lots of love, 2 very happy parents x
