“I used my Hypnobirthing breathing technique the whole time and Stewart supported me like a champ. It was incredible!!”
Tayla, Peaceful Birthing Mother
On Tuesday I went to get a check because of a decrease in movement for a whole day, I was 38+5 weeks.
They were really concerned about a few things and did not want me to leave hospital and wanted to induce me. After a lot test we stayed over night on Tuesday, and I agreed to have the balloon inserted.
Then in the morning, I was induced. My waters were broken first, and then I was put on the Syntocinon drip.
We were both pretty disheartened at this point because everyone was telling us how I would require more help, more pain killers, more everything.
“So basically everything we ‘planned’ was not happening. But we had amazing midwives who helped us stay as close to our hypnobirthing birth plan as best we could.“
Well, at 3.51pm little Roman was born perfect!
I got to have a water birth and I had NO pain killers and NO tearing!!! It was amazing.
I thought I wasn’t going to be allowed in the water, and then I was asked to get out towards the end, but I’m so grateful I was able to birth him in the water.
I used my breathing techniques the whole time and Stewart supported me like a champ. It was incredible. All the midwives were so impressed and all have your details to pass on to expecting mums!
Welcome earthside baby Roman!
