Birth story - Lindsay and baby Lily

2 months ago today, I gave birth to my daughter lily in the local hospital midwife unit, in the birthing pool. It was my 2nd labour, and 2nd water birth. I am so grateful for both my labour experiences being positive ones.

When I was pregnant with my first child, I always remember all I heard was negative stories..... this can be petrifying for a woman in her first pregnancy. But I had a strong mind and trusted my body, I knew it was built to give birth and I wanted it to be a positive experience and one that I could look back at with pride. Hypnobirthing gave me the tools to help and learn what exactly my body is capable of. The digital birth pack is just wonderful and give me such help and motivation. I highly recommend it to every pregnant woman! The breathing techniques for up and down breathing during surges are just amazing! I kept completely in control during all stages of labour.
