Our Raymond was born on January 20th last week! We are over the moon with our little man. He's doing great!
Thanks for the extra sessions. I really think this helped to get the labor going.
The birth was beautiful. I listened to a lot of affirmations especially during the first hours (especially in the shower – while Roy was making the cake). The first 8cm went very quickly. The midwife was impressed by the calmness and speed. Because Raymond was crooked, the dilation at 8 cm. I first tried it myself for 2 hours, but when it turned out that Raymond had pooped in the amniotic fluid and there was no further dilation, I was given hormones. That was a bit spicy because I already had the urge to press. Thank god for the endorphins that had been released Smiley face with open mouth and smiling eyes After 2,5 hours of hard work I was finally allowed and it was beeped within fifteen minutes And once he lay on my stomach, it was only fun!
I am so glad I took the hypnobirthing course with you. I was able to sit in my cocoon until the very end and direct all my energy inward, without getting stressed. Without hypnobirthing (and my anchor Roy! :) I don't know if I could have made it through this without panic and too much pain.
I am now becoming a bit more human in my recovery and really enjoying the little man.
Huge thanks again for the help and guidence!!
