I've been where you are now. I've felt the anxiety creeping up as I got nearer and nearer to my due date and I know how it feels when people share their horror stories on sight of your bump (hmm... thanks for that). I was nervous about the birth, not knowing what to expect (& everything I did know didn't sound very appealing) and anxious that I wouldn't be able to cope with the pain. I felt out of control and wanted to find a way of preparing for birth that would help me feel back in control.
That’s when I came across hypnobirthing and everything changed for me.
I had my son, Jonah, in November 2012. It wasn’t the birth I'd planned (I had hoped for a water birth but ended up needing to be induced) but it was a totally amazing experience. Thanks to the hypnobirthing techniques that I’d practised during my pregnancy, it was a relaxed, beautiful and positive induction birth. I stayed calm and in control and it was the perfect birth for me and my baby.
