I gave birth using the techniques you taught me. The whole experience was utterly amazing. I managed the labour on my own without giving a thought to pain relief, in silence and for the most part pretty motionless and gave birth at home.
My midwife said she had never witnessed hypnobirthing working so successfully. I sat for 2 hours on a foot stool - not the easiest place -and dilated to 10cm in an almost euphoric state.

I had to keep telling my husband and my midwife that I was contracting, Apparently I was just breathing and smiling with my eyes closed all the time. It felt as if it really was so easy to just let things flow. After 6 or 7 hours she was born under water in a birthing pool in my livingroom.
