Just a quick email to say that Cora Felicity Rose arrived on Tuesday April 12th. Unfortunately it was a very long labour starting in the birthing centre and ending at Pembury hospital. She was back to back and my contractions weren’t coming quick enough, even though I had got to 8cm dilated, we were transferred to hospital and I was put on a drip. As she was back to back she couldn’t get over my pelvis bone and her heart rate dropped so they had to use forceps to get her out. However that being said the visualisations and my breathing managed to get me to 9cm and then all I used was gas and air for the last cm and some pushing before I had the spinal for the episiotomy and the forceps.
The hypnobirthing really helped to keep me calm through the long process. Thank you again for all you did.
