Nine days late and induction due to my blood pressure starting to rise, but in a twist of events my waters broke naturally on the street when we went for a walk after the gel! Baby had done a poo in utero so they started the drip to induce me, but given I had some acupuncture points put in by my acupuncturist – my labour progressed quickly and they turned the syntocinon drip off!
Although, I had to be hooked up to wireless monitors as he had already had a poo, I had a natural Hypnobirth. Four hours of active labour, 10 minutes of pushing!
The student midwife came to see me today to ask who taught me Hypnobirthing as she had not seen such a calm birth! I owe it all to you, I wore my face mask and noise cancelling headphones and was in the zone so much they didn’t realise when I was 10cm!!
I did ask for pain killers in transition but by then time they got the gas I forgot about it!!
