I thought this was a great story about how Hypnobabies tools can be used for your whole life! It is like riding a bike.
I’m currently just over 11 weeks with #4, this will be my 4th
Hypnobabies birth (a repeat “customer”, the highest recommendation I
can give it!). DS was a med-free hospital birth in 2004, DD1 (10
lbs!) was a homebirth in 2006, DD2 was a home waterbirth in 2008, this
little one is due in June 2010.
This time around I’m facing something I’ve never experienced before -
gallstones. Ouch! I’ve had 3 attacks now, and it has been the worst
pain I’ve ever experienced. During my last attack I went and grabbed
my iPod and loaded up my “Creating Anesthesia” track and curled up in
bed with my rice sock on my abdomen. It’s been about 1.5 years since
I’ve listened to any of my Hypnobabies tracks but it was just like
riding a bike, it all came back. The relaxing deep breaths, the light
switch and the anesthesia. Before the track was over I was
comfortable and asleep, and slept through the rest of the gallstone
attack. (A far cry from my 1st one that kept me up writhing in pain
for hours.) I’m still waiting for my appointment to see a doctor
about the gallstones (long wait times for appointments at the local
military hospital) but I’m glad I have a coping mechanism for any
other attacks that come along.
