I saw melody for Mindful Hypnobirthing with Mindful mamma. My husband thought i was off my rocker as he put it to consider Hypnosis for childbirth. His family are all doctors, and they were skeptical too. Thankfully, my mother had seen a now retired hypnotherapist years ago to stop smoking, and then to help with insomnia. My mothers belief in hypnotherapy , and my own interest swayed me to "deviate from convention" against a back drop of my (well meaning) in laws, a father and brother in law doctor, and a cousin whose a midwife. I put all of this aside, as I'd had such a traumatic birth 4 years ago with my beautiful daughter. I had do something different. During the workshop, my husband was able to experience hypnosis. He went all victor meldrewy- he couldn't believe it was such a natural state. The workshop was fun, and informative. The workshop show birthing partners peaceful relaxation scripts to read to their partners. While we both giggled at first to statements such as "I acknowledge and trust the innate wisdom of my body for me and my blossoming baby" the more we did it, it really took seed (literally) in my mind.
well - im happy to say, On aug 1st, I had my beautiful baby boy free from pain killers naturally as my body was designed to just as the workshop taught me. The mindful affirmations kicked in, and I don't know how to describe it- other than I just went into a zone- and birthed our baby breath by breath, I pictured a budding flower opening......
While some of the in laws say it was a fluke/placebo - I don't believe it to be. And if its good enough for Kate - it's good for me. My sister is pregnant with her first and she's going to do Hypnobirthing with melody. To say I'm in gratitude- is putting it mildly :))a great book mentioned on the workshop is by the Doctor Sarah Buckley ; gentle birth, gentle mothering"
This will relay fears, it's by a medical profession , and a mother.
Booked in for a pregnancy massage 4 months ago which was amazing and heard about the birth preparation classes. Wasn't sure about hypnobirthing but due to previous bad birth I booked on class. Me and hubby loved it even though he wasn't keen on going at first.
Best thing ever as our little girls birth was amazing, quick and I can't wait to have another baby as loved the experience so much- didn't need any drugs or medical treatment and even my hubby over the calm birth and new how to help - best money spent and now I feel I've gained a true friend along the way in Jodie
