Our son was born in the birthpool at home on the 19th of June at 14:41 in the afternoon, weighing 8lb6oz. It was the most amazing empowering experience I could have wished for, and he is a very happy healthy contented baby! We are so happy we did the Hypnobirthing: it turned what is for so many women a traumatic experience into something so wonderful.
I’m delighted to tell you we have a baby girl, Niamh Alexandra, born on 11th Sept at 18:03 weighing 9lbs7ozs.
What can I say about hypnobirthing? It was amazing!
Surges started during the night of Monday 10th September, however, I managed to sleep on/off throughout. I finally began the relaxation/visualisation techniques at 8am and the midwife visited at 10.30am. At this point she said I was 5cm dilated and could go to the maternity unit anytime. She commented several times how well I had progressed and how calm I was.
