I went into early labour on the Friday morning with mild and irregular contractions. By 3am that night they were strong and regular and we were ready to head to the birth centre. I used the hypnobirthing preparation track every day up until the birth (particularly needed as he was 10 days late!) and the relaxation music while I was in labour. It helped me to stay calm throughout and breathe through the contractions. There were a couple of moments of self doubt but I knew I could do it – the affirmations track was perfect for these times although I had listened to it so much I just repeated my favourite ones to myself! My baby was born on the Saturday at 12:19 weighing 8lb7 and is just perfect. I delivered completely naturally and in the water which is exactly what I wanted! I would recommend hypnobirthing to everyone and can’t thank Ruth enough for the help.
