“Our Labour and Birth were Amazing!” – Gill and Rob’s Birth Story using Hypnobirthing after a Previously Traumatic Birth

Yesterday I met up with my clients Gill and Rob for their postnatal follow up. They had an induced labour for the birth of their little girl….who weighed a very healthy 9lb 11oz!!! Their induction involved pessaries, artificial rupture of membranes and a syntocin drip….here’s some of what the couple said about Hypnobirthing their induced labour:

f0 We used our Hypnobirthing skills to ask all the right questions. As a result, we made decisions based upon time, trust and information….instead of pressure and fear.

f0 I felt like I was actually riding the surges.

f0 I was upright and mobile throughout…as well as being on monitor.

f0 I asked the midwife when she was going to turn the hormone drip up. She told us it had already been turned up to maximum strength. I hadn’t noticed the change in intensity as I was so focused and relaxed.

f0 I could remember a lot of what you said from the course throughout. As Alice’s head started to crown…I said to Rob "Rachel told us about this!"

f0 I listened to my body throughout. Rob was AMAZING at keeping me calm and focused.

f0 The midwife said to me "your Hypnobirthing techniques are amazing".

f0 I was so aware of what was happening. I felt part of the whole experience. During my last birth I felt no control and was really scared.

f0 The Hypnobirthing techniques you taught us worked wonders. I couldn’t have managed without them.

f0 I did not feel remotely afraid. I felt in total control and it didn’t even feel like pain.

f0 Alice was born so calm and alert. What an incredible birth experience!!!! Rob and Gill were open to all of the Lionheart Hypnobirthing techniques, tools and information and used them in the best way possible. Induction of labour can be a very positive and enjoyable birth experience when you know how to combine the two perfectly.
