Happenstance: something that happens by chance
I’ve always liked how that word sounded, happy circumstance. It makes me smile. Who knew it would it would be the start of my new career? It came in the form of a phone call from my cousin, Deb.
She had just completed a hypnosis course and was excited about what they’d learned about HypnoBirthing. A method of birthing that uses self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualization, affirmations and breathing techniques for moms who want a natural, more comfortable birth experience.
Deb’s excitement was contagious. I’d heard of HypnoBirthing but I checked it out on YouTube and was totally fascinated by moms who looked calm and relaxed minutes before their babies were born. It was amazing. No crying, purple pushing or a chorus yelling at mom to PUSH!!
After reading, HypnoBirthing-The Mongan Method, I was sold! It all made so much sense. The program is based on the fact that birth is a natural, normal process for which a woman’s body is perfectly designed. It made me wonder why birth was being treated as anything but.
My births were complete with inductions and epidurals. I pushed my brains and babies out by holding my breath until I turned purple and giving it my all; or as much as I could while being numb from the waist down. I’ll spare you what I thought of the annoying, insistence of everyone in the room repeating PUSH, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10!! a million times. I would have screamed for them to SHUT UP, but didn’t have the breath or the strength! Ridiculous.
I now know that birth can be much more satisfying, pleasant and enjoyable. I am grateful I can share HypnoBirthing with parents, so their experience will be one they will cherish forever. Not, whine about in a blog!
Imagine a birth that is calm, gentle and loving for both mom and her baby. Or have a look at the incredible HypnoBirthing videos on my website. http://www.chooseperfectlynatural.com/
