that is such an amazing story-- it is so great that you researched so much and trained your mind to not succumb to fear! reading this makes me so excited to have my first homebirth (using similar hypnobirthing methods) and it reassures me that there ultimately is nothing to be afraid of. thank you so much for sharing!!!! :

Congratulations! What a wonderful story. H loves that he caught ds2, I think it's one of the best memories of his life. I'm hoping to catch this one, though.

Now I wish even more that I could afford Hypnobabies or at least find the cd's somehow, since even the library doesn't have them.

I got them used off the old TP here for about $60. I've heard that if you call hypnobabies directly they sometimes have used copies to sell for around $80. I'd give you mine but I re-sold them myself soon after her birth to pay for more cloth diapers.

And thanks everyone for all the replies! I just totally love that I am still getting replies over a year later I still think about her birth almost every single day. Of course dd is a blessing but her birth was a blessing as well

I was scrolling through the UC birth stories list and your name jumped out at me... I know you from BBC!

I know my story is a million years old...ok, 3 yrs old..and I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the link but I sent in my story awhile ago to Babycenter and they actually posted it on their site!  They only have about 10 stories of varying births so I think that's pretty cool.  Here's the link but if the mods need to delete it I understand. 

http://www.babycenter.com/0_birth-story-an-unassisted-painless-birth_10339773.bc

 

If they have to remove the link you can find it under "an unassisted painless birth."

Kudos to your DH for stepping up to the plate, and to you for birthing so wonderfully! What a neat story. :) I'm glad you got the birth of your dreams.
