Adrienne, with baby Keilan, Kelowna, BC
Are you a past client and have an amazing birth story or testimonial you would like to share with us?
I can't believe it has take me this long to respond! I am truly sorry but DID want to spend the time telling you all about the experience!!!
On April 13th my Dr. finally convinced me to get induced. After 11 days of making her wait I start to feel a little nervous about the size of the baby!! Lol! The only reason I was nervous about his weight was because my Dr. Kept saying "Gabriel was 9 pounds and this baby is just getting bigger and bigger everyday we wait!!" Ahhh who says that to someone?!! Lol! This baby turned out to be 8lbs, but I wasn't aware of his weight. Well it all worked out!
I refused anything but the gel because I heard it was the least invasive. Mike had downloaded all the hypno birthing cds for me on my ipod and i listened to them every night from the moment I got them until I was holding my baby boy!
At 9am they applied the gel. Within an hour I was having contractions that I could barely feel but they were showing up on the monitor. After about 45min they completely went away. So I stayed in the hospital doing laps around the maternity ward with Mike. At about 1230 they decided to admit me anyway because of my previous labour. I told my mom to head to the hospital around 2pm. As soon as she arrived my Dr. came in and said I looked way too comfortable! Because they had already started they were going to break my water. Reluctantly I went along. Within minutes my very minor contractions became extreme. I put my ipod in and started to do everything I had practiced. It SERIOUSLY worked! A girl came in about 45min into my labour, fully dilated and in complete hysterics. I have NEVER heard anyone scream like that in my life. It drove me crazy, I wanted to waddle in there and smack her and say don’t u know how tired you are making yourself, listen to this please!! Haha, I obviously didn't do that (and I would NEVER smack anyone, ever!) so I blared my ipod and drowned eveything out! Mike said I even fingered her through the wall during one of my bad contractions and her horrific scream!! I was actually in pretty good spirits believe it or not and luckily there was about 20 minutes of silence before I pushed little Keilan out and got to hold him in my arms! I was so happy another birth NO DRUGS!! There is so much more appreciation and sense of accomplishment after delivering a baby like that! I can never thank you enough for helping me so much! If anyone else would have been in that room that day it would have been you! I encourage you to go further with your hypnotherapy and will definitely scream from the roof tops all about you!! Funny the breech turn session you did for me got back to you too! What a great story!! Feel free to share our story to whom ever you like and inspire others!!!
Lots of Love, Adrienne
