When I found out I was pregnant in January 2014, I immediately began to spend a lot of time researching providers, hospitals, birthing centers and childbirth classes. I came upon Hypnobabies and quickly found that the philosophies and ideas behind it align with the hopes and goals I had for this birth. I have several important reasons why I chose to go with Hypnobabies, the main one being that I knew I'd need a solid game plan if this birth ended up going as fast as my first one did. My son's birth seven years earlier was very intense, fast and chaotic; four total hours from the first wave to the final push! The waves came so fast and I felt so much pain that I remember feeling like I couldn't catch my breath.
Hypno-moms: Use your Bubble of Peace and enjoy this amazing story! This baby had some heart rate decelerations but had a fabulous outcome. Amazing how the baby and mom's body can work together this like.
Wednesday morning (6/18) I woke up and things just felt "different." I had been having some signs for the last couple days that things were progressing but knew that there was no sure way to tell how long after those things started that I would give birth, but I told Tony before he left for work that today could be the day and that he needed to have his phone with him at all times.
