I gave birth to Nina Seren White, weighing 6lb 7oz at St Michael’s on 14th October 2010.
My birth was fantastic!!
My waters broke at a reflexology appointment and I was bussed up the hill to the hospital.
My labour was 9 hours from the waters breaking – I dilated at a steady pace.
I only used a Tens machine for relief…though I did have a doula who massaged my lower back through every surge and Stevie stroked my head.
The HypnoBirthing techniques definitely worked for me – I was totally in the zone for the contractions but was able to chat and even argue about who composed the music on the birthing tape in between!!
I just felt totally able to birth naturally, no fear just focus.”
