If you are in need of some inspiration for your birth, then read this birth story! There are so many wonderful comments from mum stating how amazing birth can be…. “I didn’t lose control for a second” “A positive beautiful birth with no stress, no fear, almost no pain. A totally un-medicated birth that seemed like a walk in the park and I can now say we are born to do it this way! “ “Hypnobirthing classes gave me the strength to become a mother again and feel like I had the birthing experience every mother deserves!”
I want to update you with our amazing news. So little Cassandra Anna Ingaldo decided to make her entrance in this world on Friday 25th of May at 1.27 in the afternoon.
Her birth was calm, easy and quick!
I started having very soft and gentle surges around 4am in the morning. I listened to the ‘surge of the sea’ album and managed to fall asleep till 7.30am in the morning. When I woke up I was having gentle surges every 5 minutes and managed to have breakfast, read a book and play with my boy.
John couldn’t believe I was in labour – he was getting ready to go to his job. I told him better to stay home as you never know how things develop. I was right around 10am it started getting more intense. I went to my room listened to my meditation playlists, had a shower and concentrate.
I put all the hypnobirthing knowledge to use. It helped so much. I was in total control having surges that were lasting more than a minute every 3 mins, I wasn’t feeling the urge to go to the hospital!
Finally at 12.15 the waters broke and it became very clear we needed to go as surges were coming very close and more intense. Still I was in control.
I was at the hospital at 12.30 and the midwife was preparing the pool. I got in the pool at 1pm feeling the urge to push and baby came out at 1.27pm
I didn’t lose control for a second. I was able to listen and follow the midwife instructions and breath my baby out. I didn’t have any tearing. When she slipped out of me I just couldn’t believe it! That was it! I gave birth and it seemed so easy!!
John – who was an excellent partner holding and talking to me all the time – said he couldn’t believe how in control I was and how easy it seemed. He finally admitted our hypnobirthing classes helped a lot to achieve what we wanted.
A positive beautiful birth with no stress, no fear, almost no pain. A totally unmedicated birth that seemed like a walk in the park and I can say now we are born to do it this way!
Thank you very much. Hypnobirthing classes gave me the strength to become a mother again and feel like I had the birthing experience every mother deserves. Positive and empowering. Keep up the good work so many expecting mothers need to know about it.
