Next Baby

Here is an account of a natural home birth. A very inspiring story. 

" Six weeks ago I gave birth to my second child.
It was definitely a HypnoBirthing baby birth calm, exciting, and drug free experience.

I thought I was still in early labor as my surges were around 10 minutes apart but very strong and rhythmical. I ignored a few obvious signs of nearing completion as I thought that I was yet to really get into established labour. 
After my membrane released with barely a trickle during one surge, my husband assisted me to the toilet where I intended to remain for a long time. 

I felt the next surge build and knew it was going to be a big one and I told myself to "let go." It literally took my breath away as I felt a huge rush of energy which made me stand up and my mucus uterine plug flew into the toilet like a champagne cork (a pop followed by a plop!)

Instinctively I stuck my hand between my legs and gasped, "He's coming!" My baby's entire head emerged and thankfully, he stopped.

No pushing, no anything, just that amazing reflex ejecting him automatically. I was amazed and elated.

With my husband's help I slowly wobbled back into the bed, got on hands and knees just in time for the next surge which again required no effort and his body slid out easily into my husband's waiting arms.

The speedy, rocket- like arrival of my beautiful 9lb 11oz baby did not create even a scrape.

An amazing, lovely, surprise conclusion.
