My name is Faith and I was in your hypnobirthing class earlier this year around June. Just wanted to let you know I had such a beautiful and relaxing birth thanks to you. I still can’t believe that it actually happened so quickly and so smoothly. Olive Rose was born at 8.25am on Sunday the 28th of September. 4 days past the EDD. After contractions started at midnight I just completely relaxed through every surge and went to the hospital at 6.30am the nurses didn’t bother to check on me because I was so relaxed they thought I wasn’t in active labor, so at 7.30 someone checked me when I said I think I want to push soon and I was 8cm dilated 🙂 when I did get the urge to bear down she was out in 4 big breaths. Yay! I went home with her 6 hours later and had an amazingly quick recovery.
There really is something to be said about relaxing and breathing through the stages of labor that makes it not only bearable but liberating and really special. I make sure all the people I know and love who are heading towards having a family look you up! As I said before I’m so glad you are out there teaching this technique.
So thank you, thank you, thank you for showing me how to relax through giving birth. Big hugs and kisses for you!
I’ll send you the very first photo of us… I’m laughing/crying with joy! Also I didn’t have time to get undressed or dim the lights!
Seriously, after giving birth to my first baby boy (it was so long and traumatic) I know that hypnobirthing works! I did it the hard way and I can only wonder what it would have been like if I knew about hypnobirthing then…
