Everything happened in a fast and safe manner: he was born in 2 hours and 40 minutes from beginning to end.
Many many thanks for teaching us a confident and comfortable way of giving birth to our boy. I am talking about your hypnobirthing childbirth classes to all my good friends who are in a "fertile age" and I would not be surprised if somebody will make contact with you.
Keep inspiring people with your hypnobirthing childbirth classes Aisling, as it did work for us.
(You are a good one!! :) With many thanks April & Harry
I know you told me I'd be busy! My birth went remarkably well, besides some gas and air, I managed extremely well. There wasn't a peep out of me! My reward was a lovely little girl, she's as good as gold, bless her, Thank you for all your help and support. Marina & Derek
I felt a bit defeated as I knew posterior labours were much longer so these were pre labour pains. Tried to do my breathing as much as I could, but at around 7 am we decided to go to the hospital, When we got there I told the nurse there's not much point in checking me cause I was sure I hadn't started to dilate.
I thought there was going to be another two days of the pain just getting worse and worse so I would have taken anything! I felt like such a wuss. The midwife then looked very surprised and told me I was 8 centimetres dilated! Crazy, I didn't even think I was in labour yet. Gave birth to a little girl an hour later at 8:50 in three pushes, five minutes or something, and I didn't tear at all.
I didn't think the breathing was working but it obviously was! I had spent all day on all fours trying to turn her around, and listened to your cd loads of times, it all worked brilliantly. If she hadn't been posterior I don't know if I would have felt anything. She turned in the end too. She's amazing. We're so happy it happened the way we wanted. Thanks for your hypnobirthing classes.
