Caroline & Ed attended a Hypnobirthing Workshop with me in February and welcomed Fleur into the world last week. Congratulations!
Ed and I wanted to let you know that we welcomed baby girl Fleur into the world on Saturday 🌸💕 (41w+3)
The birth was quite incredible. At Crowborough Birth Centre, in the water and 4 hours from the very first pang at home to the last push in the water. Gas and air – no stitches. It was everything I had ever hoped for and more. The breathing and music got me through it. I felt empowered and in control and although it wasn’t “pain free” it was never overwhelming (like you said!). The only blip was I did have another retained placenta so ended up going to Pembury and having another manual removal – but again only on gas and air and the breathing helped me through it. I then went back to Crowborough for my postnatal care. And I would take that 100 times over induction and to be able to be at the birth centre and feel like I participated in my baby’s birth. Thank you so much for your support. xx”
