Iren had a calm, water birth for her first baby using hypnobirthing techniques. When we was pregnant with her second baby she booked me for a refresher hypnobirthing course in Gravesend. The great thing about a private refresher course is that the content can be tailored. With Iren we spent a lot of time discussing home births as well as techniques for staying calm in intense situations. The reason for this was because her first birth was very fast (precipitous) and she was worried about arranging childcare for her eldest child and then getting to the hospital in time, or worse getting stuck in traffic and giving birth on the way to the hospital! Iren decided that a home birth would be the safest option for her, and this is her birth story:

I would like to thank you again for your guidance in form of the one-to-one hypnobirthing lesson, it has been a great help 🙂

I am delighted to announce that our baby girl Myla-Rose was born on 6th of September in the comfort of our home in the birth pool as it was planned. I had a lovely experience of birthing my baby completely unmedicated without any intervention.
Baby girl was born on 6th of September and weighed 2900gramm
Gestational age: 39+5 (exact same day as my first baby was born)
Planned birth: home water birth
Actual birth: home water birth
My home birth story:
12:15AM – waters broke – no contractions
1:00AM – midwife visited and left
2:00AM – contractions started but I was able to sleep in between them
6:00AM – contractions became slightly stronger but I was able to easily talk through them and I was listening to hypnobirthing mp3 materials
8:00AM – eldest daughter got picked up by grandparents, contractions became stronger and were every 15 minutes
8:30AM – I went in the birth pool and my partner called the midwife. Contractions became longer and close to one another. When contractions became really intense I was repeating the birth affirmations out loud which gave me strength and confidence.
9:40AM – first midwife arrived, by this time I started saying baby is coming soon. Midwife managed to check my blood pressure and baby’s heart rate with dopler
After this I had two or three long contractions and baby was coming.
9:58AM – our tiny baby girl was born. Right in that moment the second midwife arrived.
With one contraction baby’s head was born and the second contraction her body was born.
I, myself brought her up on my chest and I got to see baby’s first breath. This was a truly magical moment.
My fiance is really proud of me, he said I made the birth look nice and easy 🙂
