" My son Wilf is now 2 weeks old and I'm just coming back down to Earth! After a difficult time with my first birth, the fantastic HypnoBirthing™ course you gave me & hubby helped us both have a far more relaxed pregnancy & approach to Wilf's birth.
He decided he was coming 2 weeks early, which slightly took us by surprise, but we remained relaxed & excited, without fear. The techniques undoubtedly enabled me to stay in control and cope really well with the surges, and the thinning & opening phase progressed really smoothly & quite rapidly.
I made it to the pool for a hospital waterbirth and despite Wilf being in the OP position (back to back ), which did make the birthing phase longer & harder I think than if he'd been sunny side down, I had no pain relief at all & the midwives were mighty impressed. Infact, pain relief didn't even enter my mind!
And my recovery has been fantastic - to the point I've had to keep looking at my very chilled little HypnoBirthing™ baby to double-check I have actually had him & it wasn't just a dream with me still having 2 weeks to go!
Thank you Rachel for helping us to have happy memories to keep forever of Wilf's arrival & a stunning, happy, relaxed little man.”
