An amazing birth, despite meconium

Mama C – ‘ The people at the delivery room could not believe that I didn’t use any sort of pain relieved, not even after they put me on the drip for the last half an hour of the labour’

How did it go… well, not according to plan, but thanks to all the practice of both yoga and hypnobirthing techniques it was just amazing. The whole process started around 3 am, but 3 :45 am I had my ‘show’ and by 1:30 pm my water broke.. That’s when things took a different path as the water was green. Yes, with meconium.  

After I spoke with the birth centre at Lewisham hospital they recommended us to go straight to the labour ward.  By the time I got to hospital the midwife said that i was 9 cm dilated…she was fantastic, my partner gave her our birth plan she read it and said it would be better to try to get our baby out as natural as possible..Following my partner’s lead she encouraged me to breath my baby down…

The process was fine, but started to slow down a bit and the specialists (who were also aware and respectful of our birth plan) came to offer different options as we needed to get our little boy out ASAP. She kept encouraged me to breath my baby down as she could almost see his head. In the end, I was put on the drip to accelerate the surges for the last stretch… Our baby boy was then received by a paediatrician who checked him and said everything was fine with him as he didn’t eat any of the meconium. 

The hypnobirthing techniques and yoga exercises did play a big part of my day and it was closer to what we wanted. I didn’t experience any pain and stayed very calmed. The people at the delivery room could not believe that I didn’t use any sort of pain relieved, not even after they put me on the drip for the last half an hour of the labour…

THANK YOU very very much, you helped me loads in having an amazing birth (in spite of the meconium) and our baby boy was born calmed and healthy..”
