DS was born at home and it was, of course, lovely! Everything went fantastic. The only hiccup was that during transitional labour, I would fall asleep (briefly!) during contractions. Luckily, DH was holding me on the birthing ball so no calamity ensued. At one point, my midwife was in a different room and hubby went to make an impt phone call. I was soooo happy to be by myself because then I could lay down and try to have a nap without being asked to 'keep active'! lol! I actually started pushing with the intent that I could nap as soon as babe was out (in reality, I'm not a napper normally and after the birth, I couldn't sleep for a couple days due to excitement hormones!)
Talking to a meditative guide, she suggested that what was happening was not me falling asleep but instead that I have the ability to enter a deep meditative during focused events such as labour.
I am intrigued to learn more about being in an hypnotic state to assist with labour pains. It's definitely not a common birth choice so that's why I'm keen to hear about other mamas experiences.
Anyone else have this same experience while birthing? Previous experience in hypno-birthing?
