Our birth experience could not have been more perfect for us really, I find myself looking back on it (though somewhat foggy) with complete calm.
I was induced on Friday the 31st at around 7pm my back had pretty much given up by then, and then by about 3:30am everything kicked off!
Sat in the shower for a good part of 6hrs with the help of Ben, breathing and the gas. At 9am the next morning I had dialated about 0.5cm and was exhausted. We made the decision for an epidural at that point.
I was so lucky with the experience of the epidural as I still had complete sensation in both legs as well as the pressure of each wave.
Ben and I were both able to rest for a few hours. Which we both needed at that point. By 1pm we were ready to deliver him, with every wave of pressure I remember telling myself that I was made to do this and that I was about to meet my baby.
After 2hrs we found out the Ezra was not in the right position he was sideways. My beautiful midwife Zoe and Ben kept me calm and strong and with 3 pulls with the suction we delivered our little man at 3:55pm.
I don’t think Ben and I would have managed to take everything as calmly and focused as we both did with out our hypnobirthing practice and we are both so thankful to you for your guidance.
Ben and I can now both look on are birth experience with complete positivity and love.
I hope to be joining mums and bubs yoga as soon as I can!
