Lara’s birth – Pre-eclampsia

Lara’s birth – Pre-eclampsia

Lara was born on 8th December. Unfortunately we didn’t get to use the Birthing suite as planned. I was diagnosed with Preeclampsia at my 40 week check up. I was induced and she arrived via a ventouse delivery after I had an epidural. It all went really well considering and she’s amazing! We are very much in love. 
I was listening to Hypnobirthing every night before going to bed and I definitely think it helped me keep calm throughout the entire birthing process. There was a point where they had to remove the Propess as my baby’s heart rate dropped. This was definitely the worst moment of the whole experience, but thankfully I didn’t panic as I reckon it could’ve been worse for my baby.

Fortunately I dilated quite quickly after this and they didn’t need to use a different measure of inducing me.  
I just wanted to thank you and let you know how it went for me. I will definitely recommend others to Hypnobirthing as I felt that it helped me to remain calm and in control even with everything going on.
