I was incredibly lucky to have a labour very similar to my first but in half the time.
I used the golden ribbon breath throughout and spent the majority of the time on my hands and knees rotating and rocking my pelvis as we do in class. I got to 9cm using just the TENS machine, partly because the midwives didn’t realise how far gone I was. Apparently I kept smiling in between contractions.
Luckily there was just enough time to fill the birthing pool for Alex to arrive with the help of some gas & air. We waited for the umbilical cord to stop pulsating before cutting it and then waited for the placenta to pop out by itself. A very positive experience for everyone involved.
I will miss your classes so much, always looked forward to some me time on Monday evenings.
Good luck to all the other mummies.
Attached is s photo of Alex meeting his big sister for the first time.
