She's amazing, healthy and alert all the time. She is almost 6 months old now (where did time go?!) and each day is a surprise!
We can't thank you enough for your hypnobirthing classes, I have recommended you to some of my friends who couldn't believe my experience was so amazing! I am sending to you a couple of pics of Abbey! Hope to meet you again in future, thanks so much" Linda, Eddie and Abbey
Aisling our little girl arrived a few weeks early ...here's our hypnobirthing story:
Went to bed at 11pm and was up, as usual, every couple of hours to go to the loo.The only difference being that I couldn't settle back to sleep properly during the night.
I had just gotten back into bed when my waters had broken.I was pretty calm though and woke Richard. I felt no pain at all.
I got dressed, put on make-up, packed a bag. Went downstairs at 8am and I felt the first pressure low down my back - got into car - pressure was coming every 2 minutes for the duration of our drive to the hospital.
I used my hypnobirthing breathing techniques and in between was chatting and felt fine - the hypnobirthing breathing techniques really helped and I kept thinking '3 of these breaths and the pressure will be gone' ..which it always was. We arrived at 9am I was checked on arrival and was fully dilated - and was informed very quickly that I wouldn't be getting any drugs etc… which I was very happy about - as soon as I was brought into the delivery room I was encouraged to push. Anyway, our gorgeous girl was born at 10.56am
I have since compared the experience with my friend who also did hypnobirthing classes and so much was similar... it was a very surreal experience...really felt like a dream and I kept asking Richard afterwards 'did that just happen?'
The last 40 minutes was pretty intense but I don't think anyone could complain about that and again, I think that had I used my birth breathing that would have been much better.
Everyone kept saying to me that I was very lucky but then I'd tell them about my secret weapon " Hypnobirthing" and really if everyone used hypnobirthing they'd find that they were pretty 'lucky' too!! Thanks a million Aisling, Richard & Sharon
