Hypnobirthing Success Rates

Birth of Narayan

“As part of my hypnobirthing course, we were asked to visualize our labor. I had pictured an easy labor with a long lead-up to spend practicing my relaxation techniques and affirmations. I planned to spend time in the shower, listen to music, and believe it or not, snack!

By the time my labor started I was two weeks past my due date and had so many false alarms I didn’t think anything of the contractions I felt in the shower, at breakfast, or while walking on the beach.

Only when they became so strong that I had to pause while walking did I realize that it might actually be true labor. We started timing them and as they were already 2 minutes apart it was time to drive the 45 minutes to the hospital.

Our delivery room was spacious and light-filled, and the midwives were lovely and happy to respect our birth plan and leave my partner and me to navigate the progress of labor together with no intervention.

If I could describe my labor in three words they would be intense, empowering, and fast! My partner James chanted mantras, made me laugh, gave me water, and held my hand. I wore tulsi beads and as I held my son Narayan for the first time, we thanked the universe, God, that eternal spiritual force.

Lasting only six hours, I was able to give birth without any pain relief, intervention, or manipulation, and was supported by both my mother and partner. For that, I feel truly blessed as it was the single most amazing experience of my life.

In all honesty, I didn’t feel that I needed pain relief. The contractions were intense and at times radiated from head to toe, but I brought my attention back to the breath, consciously relaxed, and reminded myself that they would pass. Just keep breathing, just let it happen.”

Bella’s Birth Story

My birth was the most empowering thing I’ve ever done. I look back on it and am in awe of the process, of the calmness and peace in the birth space, and how much closer my husband and I are because of that experience. I’m a midwife myself and was so scared that I would have birthed the same way many of the women I looked after had birthed, in some emergency situation, on my back with instruments or a c-section.

So I went on a journey to bring positivity and passion back into birthing. One of my colleagues recommended this course and I’m so grateful for it. I felt like it was the reminder I needed that women birth their own babies and most importantly that I was entitled to the birth I wanted. It set expectations for my non-medical husband without me having to teach him, my favorite quote from him ‘wait, so you don’t birth on the bed?’. I listened to the hypno tracks often antenatally and put affirmations around my bedroom in preparation for my labor. I went into labor spontaneously at 37+6 weeks, we didn’t get to the end of the course but we had enough knowledge to get through.

I went into hospital and labored in the shower, it was peaceful despite the fact it took a long time. My midwife protected my birth space, she was a gentle presence and I’m forever thankful for her role in my birth story. I was able to breathe through my surges, there was a thought of reward during them, that I was working hard for my baby to come to me. As I transitioned to fully I screamed- a lot. I told my midwife that I had become one of those women and I was scared my colleagues could hear me and would judge me.

To that, my midwife told me not to worry, that I could scream as much and as loud as I wanted. It was freeing to do so, to vocalize during the waves and then rest. I birthed in the tiny bathroom to my worship music with dim lights, my husband to my side, and my sister in front of me. My midwife squeezed behind me and the second midwife at the door was there but not needed. When he was out I was just amazed. It was over and my baby was there screaming. I looked over to my midwife holding him in awe, she passed him through my legs and I didn’t let go for hours. I was so thankful for this course despite not getting to finish it, I know my husband learned a lot too. I thought I had failed and had been a loud laborer, thinking briefly that I wasn’t a “hypnobirther” or didn’t use the techniques properly but it was just my way of birthing, and letting my body do what it needed to do, to sing the ‘song of labor’.

Birth of Poppy Dae

It was the most amazing experience and all-natural thanks to HypnoBirthing.

Poppy was in perfect position 4 days before her birth, but she turned and was spine on spine which is why labor took so long. The HypnoBirthing mentality, breathing, and visualizations were all the tools we used. The intense sensations from Poppy being spine on spine meant I couldn’t always use the slow breathing as I was trying to, but I just did what I could and stayed so calm in between. That phase of labor took 24 hours. By the time we got to the hospital, Poppy had started to turn using the polar bear position in the shower. In the last two hours, we were in the spa bath they went really quickly, and we had an amazing midwife who respected all our birth preferences.

I was only actually breathing the baby out for 10 mins (no tears)! The midwife was setting things up and on the other side of the room when Poppy came out, all in one go she swan dived into the water and was received by Jordie who passed her to me for some blissed-out cuddles.

Jordie felt so empowered as well knowing what to do and when. He kept me so calm, he was the best birthing partner anyone could wish for. The two midwives who were at the labor said it was such a beautiful birth they were blown away by how we dealt with everything.

Poppy has eased into this world just as gracefully as when she swan-dived into it! She is so chilled out, happy, and content. We’re loving being parents.
