Hypnobirthing: “You can do anything for 3 & 1/2 minutes!”

By: Care Messer | Birth Story, Hypnobirthing, Podcast | September 27, 2023

(Full video on YouTube) Introducing Lily! Lily opens up about her a strong determination for an unmedicated birth and explains the extensive Hypnobirthing preparation she undertook to increase her chances of success. She added daily breathing practice, birth affirmations and meditations to shift her mindset.

Lily vividly describes her experience in the hospital lobby that is not to be missed! She emphasizes the significance of preparation, trust in the birthing process, and self-advocacy. She also mentions a midwife who went above and beyond to support her birth wishes. Lily also highlights the preparation she took to “train” her partner and her mom so she could stay in labor land and let them manage the hospital room. Definitely a birth story to take some notes and ideas from!
