The birth was an incredible experience; they had wanted to induce me on Sunday morning but after a sweep, 2.5 hours of reflexology, homeopathic treatments and raspberry leaf tincture (stronger than the tea!), pineapple, a very spicy Mexican and then an Indian take away and all the time listening to my natal hypnotherapy CD to keep calm and relaxed, things started naturally.
After pains on and off from the Friday she was born after just 6 hours of labour with only gas and air; and I didn’t tear.
Mihir was an incredible birth partner; loving, calm, supportive, encouraging. I’m so proud of us all and how calm we were. I can’t help but think the natal hypnotherapy preparation helped us so much to cope so well. So thank you!!
