Julie Jamaludin's Instinctive Unassisted Home VBA2C Birth Story

Baby Muhammad Fitri bin FirdausOn that Monday, 2nd December morning, after sending my 2 sons to the nursery, I felt the mild surges. I set up the contraction timer on my phone. It was about 10-15 minutes apart but still bearable. Then I stopped thinking about it and stopped timing it, but I knew my baby was coming, in my heart.

Min Loo's Healing Birth Story

怀了第二胎,我其实很彷徨,我不想要从复好像第一胎那样的经历。这一次我想要来点不一样的。我常常想,生产真的是要经历那么可怕的过程吗?我开始在网上寻找答案。无意中看到温柔生产。好奇之下我报了名参加Wai Han开办的《催眠自然温柔生产》HypnoBirthing课程。五堂的课程让我获益不浅,受益良多。这让我对于生产更加充满信心。

Anis's Fight-Against-Informed-Coercion Birth Story

Born. 11-11, 11pmAlhamdulillah I managed to get the birth I wanted for my baby.

Mommies, be informed.
Follow your instinct.
Do not depend on people, because at the end of the day, it's you and The Creator.
Make lots of dua so He will send the right people to you, inshaAllah.
Earn the birth you want, study study and study, stay healthy, stay positive.
The way you see birth will change the way you give birth. How true.

It all started on 6th September 2013. At about 4.50 am, we witnessed the birth show and got super duper excited.

華美美的温馨自助在家水中生产

11月17日,去年的这一天妳呱呱坠“水”,帮你擦擦身上的油脂裹上毛巾后,妳缓缓地睁开眼,就这样与妈妈相视而笑。爸爸在一旁为你我拍照,记录这历史性的一刻。身旁的哥哥就一直注视着妳。妳一张开眼就看见妈妈,听见妈妈、爸爸和哥哥和妳说话,应该很开心吧!

Ros's 7th Baby Warmth-filled En Caul Unassisted Home-Waterbirth Story

Received!Some moms asked me about the differences between this and hospital births. The feeling of having baby in my arms for the first time is the same, but this time round it’s warmth all over - from friendship, and love from hubby, and the water. Hospital environment is cold and the air-cond is too cold (yeah a big issue for me.) Even that made me stressed. Freedom, laughter that made me relax, seeing my baby staring at me underwater, being the first one to lift baby up to my arms... a truly amazing experience and I thank Allah over and over for that.

- Ros, SEVENTH-time mum who had a 1-hour easy birth at home (Oct 2013)
