Birthing is about Family

Birthing is about Family

Lawrence and I had engaged Tracy Martin of Martin Hypno for private HypnoBirthing classes toward the last trimester. Under Tracy's tutelage, we practiced the HypnoBirthing scripts and affirmations daily for the last couple months before our 'birth-day.' At 4am, Jan 19, it was finally go-time, and we excitedly headed to the Sturgeon. Tracy was right. Throughout the 27 hours of labor, no pain was experienced, just pressure. Because of the HypnoBirthing education, I felt confident to decline the epidural. Our birthing room was set up with calming spa music, alternating with Marie Mongan's birthing affirmations. (This helped greatly, as the pressure became more intense!). Even the nurse’s enjoyed coming into our room, as it was always quiet, calming. (It was dubbed the spa room! It was so different from what they were used to.) So grateful that we took the course together, because Lawrence was totally in tune with all that was going on. Drawing on our daily practice of the HypnoBirthing scripts and breathing, he performed hypnosis on me, reading the affirmations, and gently encouraging me between the nutritional shakes and healthy energy drinks he fed me. The night progressed on in quiet meditation, breathing, and little walks. Finally, the next morning on Jan 20, our little Zane was born.

I think it's important to point out that HypnoBirthing is not only for mom and baby, it's for dad, just as much as it's for mom. We are so grateful to Tracy and HypnoBirthing, as we got to experience the very birth that we envisioned."
