I wanted to let you know that I had a beautiful baby girl on 5th of may. I was induced at 34 weeks due to my waters breaking early and the high risk of infection. I was induced with prostin and oxytocin and had an epidural for pain relief. Ava was born by forceps as her little head was face presentation. I find it funny that she may have kicked a hole in her amniotic sac and then wanted to greet the world face first! The hypnobirthing techniques I learnt kept me calm and relaxed in a stressful situation.
I had a positive birthing experience and Ava is a calm and exclusively breastfed baby.
It wasn’t the birthing experience I had planned but the message I have is how hypnobirthing techniques can be applied to any birthing situation to help women stay calm and relaxed.
Thank you so much for you advice and support.
