My last labour and delivery didn’t go according to plan so this time I wanted to do everything I could to make sure I had the birth experience I really wanted. Wendy was fantastic, she really knows what she’s talking about and she’s just lovely!
In the run up to the birth the relaxation CDs were fantastic, particularly for getting me to sleep every single night.
When I went into labour I used the breathing and visualisation techniques I’d learned and the majority of my labour was lovely. The last hour was pretty intense but I managed to cope without any pain relief and my beautiful daughter was born 14 minutes after we pulled into the hospital car park!
It was perfect and I am confident that hypnobirthing played a huge part in that. My husband didn’t really believe in any of it beforehand but has since said to Wendy that he is now a believer!
I honestly would recommend everybody considers hypnobirthing. I never would have believed that you could really enjoy labour and birth but I did. I’d do it again in a second.
