C-Section Following Induction

Amelie arrived on Monday 2nd September. She’s a bundle of joy.

My waters broke much earlier than planned, which meant I had to be induced after 24 hours. I was in labour for 14 hours and during that time, I try to remain calm and use the breathing methods we had learned at your Hypnobirthing classes. This helped me a lot, I just kept with my breathing and gas and air in between. The midwife was very complimentary of how calm during the whole time. Unfortunately, after 14 hours with the drops, I was only dilated by 1cm so we had no other options but to get the baby out through  C- section.

I am still glad I did the Hypnobirthing class as it helped me with the early stages of labour.
