Calm birth experience

calm birth experience

by Louise and Adam

I want to say thank you for all the hypnobirthing advice and techniques I'm not sure how I would have managed my labour without them. Aoife my little girl was born on the 13th of June ten days after her due date and the last NCT baby to be born, she was 8lbs14oz and I had her in the Carmen suite in St Georges completely naturally with just a little gas and air. My labour lasted in total about 15hours from start to finish.

I used breathing techniques and listening to both Katherine Graves and Margaret howell's hypnobirthing CD's on repeat throughout my labour and in the weeks leading up to my labour.

Aoife had a beautiful calm birth with delayed chord clamping and skin skin contact straight away, she is a very calm chilled out baby and was so from the very beginning not sure if the hypnobirthing helped contribute to this or whether I've just been lucky.

I felt very calm throughout my labour and felt the hypnobirthing helped me to stay calm relaxed and in control. I have already recommended hypnobirthing to some of my friends.

Thank you again for all your help and advice.
