I am pleased to announce Eli Daniel Couzens calmly arrived at 01:52 on Saturday 17th October 2015 weighing in at 7lb 14oz. We are all very content and the homebirth went fantastically with our two wonderful midwives. For the first few hours of surges I used the birthing pool which was set up in our living room and eventually gave birth on a mat on our living room floor without any pushing.
The hypnobirthing practice helped me so much and it was a great experience to give birth in a calm and relaxed environment.
Thanks to Purely Pregnant for introducing me to Hypnobirthing and showing us there is an alternative way of giving birth.
