Some of my gorgeous gang have generously agreed to share their birth stories with you here.
Each in isolation is an inspiring read. Together, as a collection of journeys and experiences shared by couples just like you, I intend to show you through these birth stories that:
-hypnobirthing benefits any family, in any circumstances
-the goal is not a (possible but fairly unlikely) totally pain free, home, water, orgasmic birth
-you have no idea how brave and strong you are
-YOU CAN make a difference to how your baby's birth unfolds
Welcoming Florence - first baby born at home
Welcoming Indy Alexa- positive though not to plan
Welcoming Vida- a VBAC on one leg- yep!
Welcoming Annaliese Rose- second births can be SO different
Welcoming Artie- from car park to born in 26 minutes
Welcoming Alexander- handling a breech position
Welcoming Freya- when a midwife hypnobirths
Welcoming Ethan- a first baby, born at home
Welcoming Sid and Roo- twin birth
Welcoming Finley- a surprise at 35 weeks
Welcoming Beth- a half planned C-section
Welcoming Mila Belle- restoring a midwife's faith in natural birth
Welcoming Max- mild GD navigated perfectly
I've lots more lovely stories to upload, your patience will be rewarded with more fantastic inspiration...
