Isabelle’s Hong Kong Birth

I just wanted to let you know that we welcomed Isabelle Elizabeth Burrows into the world on 15th August at 23.55, weighing 6.5lbs.
I want to thank you for all your help with Hypnobirthing, I had a speedy 8.5hours of labour from my waters breaking to giving birth. The whole experience was really positive and amazing, I literally counted Isabelle out – using my breathing to count through each contraction and with each one telling myself I was a little closer to it being over!
Giving birth in Hong Kong was definitely different to the UK and although some times I had no idea what was going on or Tom wasn’t allowed to be with me, I used my hypnobirthing techniques to remain calm and not panic which got me through.
I also loved the colouring book – in the last few weeks I relaxed so much and sat colouring for hours!
Once again thank you so much for being part of this journey and helping make my labour such a positive experience.
Now the fun begins….
