Birth story - Lizzie and baby

So at 37 weeks my midwife asked if I’d considered a home birth. I’d told her all about the online hypnobirthing course and I’d had a very straight forward pregnancy but, to be honest, I’d believed what society had told me about not having a home birth for your first child.

After she had planted the seed, we discussed it and decided to go for it. With everything we had learned from Siobhan’s videos, it all made sense. We hired the pool and got all the bits and bobs ready to make it a positive experience.

The result of the influence from the positive birth company and my supportive midwife resulted in us having the best experience possible. I knew what my body was doing and why the whole way through my labour thanks to the knowledge I had gained. I gave birth (back to back) on 2 paracetamol and breathing techniques, broke my own waters, lifted my baby out of the pool on to my chest while the sun shone through my window. An experience I will never forget. Thank you for the part you played in this, I will never forget it!
