Taylor & Bodhi's Home Water Birth
I’m laying here wide awake reflecting on my birth last night and I just had to email you and tell you what a difference you and the Hypnobabies course made in my child birth.
After we last met for our private session I was pretty positive baby girl was coming early because I just felt her so low and was having so many pre birthing waves and mentally I was just so ready. Our last session really put all the pieces together and made me feel so confident going into my birth. Then the following week my husband came down with covid (unrelated to me being sick) so needless to say it was super stressful and all my birthing waves shut down. I moved out of the house and was living with my parents and my daughter for over a week hoping to not go into my birthing time, otherwise zack would not have been able to be present at the birth. The affirmations and deepening tracks helped me sleep during the week when there was so much stress going on around me. On day 10 of his quarantine ending, I woke up that morning with pretty strong pre birthing waves. The timing was literally perfect because I could finally go home. It was on and off, but fast-forward to when active birthing time began and it was a quick 7 hours later and she was born at home, in the birthing pool, with Zack and my birth team. It was perfect. I used the ball and many birthing positions that you taught us. You were totally right, this hypnobirth was night and day different from my first non hypnobirth at a hospital!
I was not one of those quiet birthing mamas we saw in the videos haha but I was SO relaxed in between everything. After the birth, everyone commented how relaxed I was. The education I received from the course was beyond empowering and I knew exactly what was happening to my body as it was happening. I played the hypnosis tracks all day long, had salt lamps all over my house, and created the perfect birthing cave. And because of you and the class I literally breathed my baby out. Before this course I had no idea that was possible. There was zero coached pushing, it was the most magical thing ever, and I literally just breathed.
Sorry this email was A LOT but I just really wanted to share with you my experience and let you know how incredibly grateful I am to have had you guide me in this journey. I told Zack last night, none of this would have been possible without your class ❤️ Please feel free to take any of this and use as a testimonial or review! I was already telling friends about your course but now I will seriously be telling everyone!
Thank you so so much!!
