Following up to my birth story, i would like to share how and when i apply hypnobirthing technique in my birthing process. Even my birth is not as beautiful and smooth, but for me that is one of my most beautiful thing happened in my life.
i can say i have the easiest pregnancy experience haha. except for 1st trimester i was at risk of miscarriage and early 2nd trimester i got skin allergy...
but i was very active..really active more than normal ppl. during this pregnancy i took up a lot of leadership roles..from my job to social events.
hypnobirth technique helped me a lot to connect with my baby and partner. positive affirmation, relaxation techniques. also i really take care of myself..the way i look, eat and behave.
birth preparation -
i downloaded few songs that make me calm
write our own birth affirmation/script
exercises that can help positioning my baby (yoga and birth ball)
massage/relaxation technique that ur hubby can do for u
the most important thing - birth plan! last time i thought birth is just admit urself to hospital and let doc do everything. but when i learned about hypnobirth, i was like...heyyyy even for the simplest thing in life, i plan everything...this is birth! the important thing in life. i need to know and plan everything. i need to make sure i made informed decision.
1st stage of birthing - surges/contraction
hyonobirth opened our eyes of the whole birthing process..the drugs, tools, techniques that hospital used during birth and their risks and benefits. we are prepared emotionally and physically for birth process
ok what i appreciate the most is how i can stand my 3 days of labor! by breathing and relaxation techniques. it really helps! it helped to reserve my energy..imagine 3 sleepless night and unimaginable pain? i manage to go through without any painkiller!
2nd stage -
birth position - tried squatting and polar bear but end up lie on the bed hee
during this stage i really shut down my mind..think of smthng nice. n reli...i dun feel pain at all!
skin to skin and delay cord clamping - both very brief coz my baby not breathing well at that time
well, what can I say hypnobirth taught me to birth without fear and manipulate my mind to go through birthing process.
