September 26th, 2016 Lily was born. It was 6.50am, Monday, the room was still dark and it felt as if the whole city around us was still asleep. Every time I think of that day, I can’t get rid of a little smile on my face..
Below my own birthing story which I sent to Inbal, my HypnoBirthing Practitioner at that time (@Inbal, thank you again _/\_).
“Our sweet Lily joined us this Monday.. And wanted to say thank you.. I didn’t panic, the fear of birth was gone. I used the tips you gave us, and it went really fast – I called my midwife at 4am, and 6.50am Lily was already with us.
We went to Geboorte Center in West, used a bathtub, which was a huge relief.. Especially that surges were very strong and frequent – no time to rest in between, really.. Robin was there with me, helping me cope with all the sensations that came, keeping my head above the water when it became intense.. he also played Rainbow Relaxation twice – only twice cause then I had to move to birthing phase and 9min later Lily was with us.. Now we are at home, getting to know our little girl, learning all the stuff that parents should know at the beginning, and most important – falling in love with her every day more..
I seriously can’t stop staring at her ;-) Thanks again!!”
Every birthing story is different, yet they all share the same unique thing - you can hold your baby in your arms afterwards, and it just feels good..
