I am a HypnoBirthing Practioner. Not only was I practicing my HypnoBirthing techniques from 15 weeks pregnant I was teaching other couples and reinforcing my learning. I had experienced one HypnoBirth with my eldest which was a really gentle and calm experience. I knew what I was in for – or so I thought.
I was in a program which allowed me early discharge from hospital so I didn’t intend to be there for more than six hours after birth. I took one bag with enough to last a night in case I needed to stay. Due to bubs being a high weight we were encouraged to stay overnight to monitor his blood sugar levels (I allowed myself to be persuaded to this for his safety but it turned out to be unnecessary and I wish I had gone home - but that’s another blog).
I felt like I was on top of the world. I was on this amazing love high full off confidence in my incredible body. It was the best experience of my life. I still feel so powerful just thinking about it. This is why I teach women HypnoBirthing so they can feel the same thing whatever their birthing brings.
