Theo SherringOur beautiful baby boy arrived 4 days late of schedule on Monday 25th February 2013 at 5.14am weighing a good size- 8 pounds 7oz!

After my waters went and contractions started on the Saturday evening, I managed to stay at home with my birthing ball and HypnoBirthing techniques before going to Cossham hospital.

I had gas and air only whilst in the birthing pool and still using all of the HypnoBirthing techniques until I was around 7cm dilated.

I found the rainbow relaxation so useful that I even managed to sleep through contractions- I was utterly amazed!!!

I was so pleased to have had the opportunity to try all of the techniques of HypnoBirthing. I felt totally in control and confident through the majority of my labour and the background knowledge made everything a lot less scary. I  would definitely use HypnoBirthing again.

We are settling in really well at home and are just about getting used to the sleep deprivation and nappy changing. We are in love with our little boy so much already and everyday he gives us  so much happiness.

We would like to thank you both for being a part of our pregnancy and providing us with the support leading into our birthing experience.
