Ashlee and Gerard took my classes on Tuesday evenings in Encinitas, North County San Diego. Here is their story:
I hope things are going well! I just wanted to say that we had our Baby Girl!
Thanks to you and Linda Goldsmith, our doula, we had a natural birth and labor lasted approximately 9 hours. It started around 11:30pm - Midnight with some menstrual type cramps. The first 2 hours we didn't know we were in labor, the next 2 hours we started timing the surges. Eventually the water broke and we left for the hospital. We got to Scripps Encinitas at 6am and had the baby at 9:02 am. We used the toilet, the back position, side positions and eventually delivered the baby in the hands and knee's position.
It was awesome. No pain meds, no tearing, only one stitch. We left the hospital the following day and have taken multiple walks and been out to our favorite restaurant since then.
Thanks for your classes they were great!
Congratulations! I am so happy that you found the HypnoBirthing techniques helpful and you had the birth that you desired! And thank you for your beautiful pictures- what joy!
