Justin and I had our baby boy on June 2 at 10:21 a.m. We had a wonderful Hypnobirth experience, with our son being brought into the world drug-free and alert. I am so proud, he barely even cried. The hospital staff was very impressed with the technique, including the doctor who ended up delivering our son. My doctor was on call, but he missed the delivery due to how speedy it was.
I labored at home as long as I could, and was dilated to a 10 when I arrived at the hospital. I went straight to delivery. Our son was born 42 minutes after arrival at the hospital. Our total experience lasted 6 hours and 21 minutes, from onset of labor until delivery. In your class, I jokingly told my Pumpkin I thought we could set a new record for a first time birth: 6 hours. We missed it by 21 minutes.
We are having our pictures made next week, so I will forward you one when I receive them from the photographer. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for teaching this wonderful class and helping us achieve the natural birth we envisioned. I am confident in knowing that my son has received the very best start in life.
