My bub arrived on Feb 2 at 5.36 am 2 weeks earlier! She is a healthy, chubby little girl weighting 3.7 kg.
Her hypnobirth was a great experience. I listened to the Hypnobirthing tracks, used the breathing and visualization techniques and Tomas was with me all the time doing the massage and anchor touch. During surges he prompted to think of the waves of the ocean: ‘let go and don’t fight it’ he would say. Vittoria arrived before my obstetrician could make it to the hospital. I pushed once using the bear down breathing technique and she came out (head and body). She was placed on my chest immediately and Tomas cut the cord only after it stopped pulsating. Soon after her birth, I started breastfeeding.
All the midwives in the delivery ward congratulated me on having such a calm birth. They asked me about hypnobirthing.
Before hypnobirthing, Tomas would never want to see our baby being born. During our baby’s birth he witnessed everything: baby and placenta being pushed out, etc.. I am so glad I decided to hypnobirth. What a beautiful way to start the life of a human being- Valeria
