I had my great Hypnobabies birth on Thursday, January 31st. Everything went really well and I couldn’t be happier. Even though I wasn’t in hypnosis (while driving to the hospital), the suggestions of pressure and tightening were so powerful that I was able to drive myself to the hospital when my waves were 5 minutes apart lasting for a minute. I’ll have a detailed birth story for you all after I meet with my doula so I can cheat with her notes. I hope that everyone gets to have the birthing experience that I did.
On a side note, I became quite the celebrity at the hospital. My nurse had been a L&D nurse for 30 years. I was her second birth of a mom using hypnosis. She kept raving about how great my birth was. The director of pre-natal education came to visit me and asked lots of questions about Hypnobabies. They are starting a natural childbirth class at the hospital and have asked if I’d be willing to share my experience. How cool is that?
Sarah did send in her full birth story, you can read it here.
