Becky and Ant’s “AMAZING” induced labour and birth

I can’t wait for you to read this!!!

This week I met up my clients Becky and Ant for their postnatal follow up at home.

This couple were the first to use my

f0 "Hypnobirthing an Induction"

f0 crib sheet….because….contrary to what a lot of people think….Hypnobirthing and medicine can go VERY well together when you know how to combine the two.

Here are some of the things Becky and Ant said to me about their birth and my hypnobirthing course:

f1 uc0u10024
f0 "I was very upset when I realised I needed to be induced (for medical reasons)…it wasn’t what we had planned".

f1 uc0u10024
f0 "Ant was amazing. He asked all the questions from your hypnobirthing course to find out our options before deciding that an induction was right for us. All the decisions we made were OURS. We felt fully in control of what was happening".

f1 uc0u10024
f0 "It was so empowering to ask for what we wanted. We did not what to be on a conveyor belt of care. Ant was so confident in being my voice".

f1 uc0u10024
f0 "The birth was AMAZING!!! It was a different birth to what we’d planned…but we used Hypnobirthing to stay in the zone, breathe, stay calm, make sure the room was relaxed and private, and make careful decisions".

f1 uc0u10024
f0 "I used the birthing ball, and then a TENS machine before the hormone drip went up".

f1 uc0u10024
f0 "When I felt the urge to push, baby was born with 15 mins and we had skin to skin straightaway".

f1 uc0u10024
f0 "I followed my instincts all the way through".

And…to top it all off…Ant said

f0 "I’m so appreciative of doing the Hypnobirthing course. It was a different birth than we planned, and to our first baby’s birth but we were well informed, calm and prepared"
