My baby arrived 11 days early. We had been out to dinner and a movie, and I was just going to sleep. The contractions started at 11 p.m. and my waters broke immediately. I rang the hospital, and they said: “We expect to see you in 24 hours,” but right from the beginning my contractions were at 5 minute intervals and 1 minute duration, so I rang them again, and went in immediately. My baby was born after a 5hr 50 min labour, weighing 8lns5ozs. I had a very light epidural when he moved into the wrong position in order to turn him but, apart from that, the techniques you taught definitely worked and I needed no other drugs.
