Hasnah's Gentle HypnoBirth Story

Baby Nabeelah Husna Tepat 12.30 malam aku bersiap untuk bergerak ke hospital. Hujan lebat mengiringi perjalanan kami ke Hospital Putrajaya. Sesampainya di bahagian pemeriksaan, jururawat mendapati bukaan sudah 8cm dan kepala sudah di bahagian serviks. Dia hampir tidak percaya kerana aku dapat menjangkakan waktu aku akan bersalin. Jangkamasa waktu pendaftaran hingga aku ke wad bersalin hanya mengambil 10 minit saja.

Rebecca's 'Sensorial', En-Caul Birth Story

Baby Ann Joun 3 years ago, when I birthed my boy, I had a painkiller jab, epidural and augmentation. Little did I know the painkiller jab actually contained morphine. My boy was drowsy at birth, he didn’t really cry after he came out, the doctor had to give him a jab to reverse the effect of the jab. On top of that, as I was on epidural, I couldn't feel my muscles. The doctor had to perform episiotomy in order to vacuum my boy out. With my 2nd baby, I didn't want all of the above.

Caryn's Dramatically Fast, All-Natural Birth Story

Baby Lee Sher My hubby and I were both so amazed with my hypnobirth. It turned out almost exactly how I have imagined my birth scenario; except it happened faster, earlier and that I missed receiving my baby by myself as I was not aware she was already out! I am so proud of myself that I did it; I had a total natural birth!!

Rebecca's Empowering DIY Hospital Birth Story

Baby Ying Huey We had wanted to be the first one to hold the baby when she is born (I guess my baby knew it too), and she made it happened for all of us. This will be the most precious and unforgettable moment of our lifetime. I am glad that the whole birth process is drug-free and the placenta was birthed naturally. I remember saying we wanted a fast birth in HB class. Well, everything ended in merely 2 hours.

Rayhana's Birth of Her Dream Story

Baby Arya Safiyya 4 days before, I had changed doctor after much thinking/praying/talking/pondering/etc. It was a totally crazy move, and although a couple of people 'congratulated' me for it, many didn't understand why I did such a thing… However, I do not regret this move one tiny bit. After going through a pretty trying and detached labor and birth for my first child, I was more than determined to have as much of a natural birth as I could this time around.

Shabirah's 'Hospital-Challenged' but Easy Birth Story

Baby KhalisWaiHan: Shabirah took the course at 36 weeks pregnancy, looking forward to a comfortable birth at public hospital. However, her plans took an unexpected turn and she was kept busy going in and out of hospital checking for availability instead of busy birthing. Despite this, her birth was smooth and easy.
At 1am, the surges got harder but I can still manage. I kept practising all the breathing techniques. It helps me a lot to control the pain, but I think I forgot to change position as I was too busy controlling the pressure, busy practising the breathing techniques. Between 2 to 4am, the surges came and went, but I can still sleep. It was around 4am when I started to have strong surges. At 6.05am, the baby pop out! :-)

Belle's Naturally-Induced 2-Hour Birth Story

Baby Chien RouEvery day I told my baby that she was going to come out real easily, and that we would both work well together through labour. And we did! I am very thankful to Wai Han. She has been so helpful and patient. HypnoBirthing is so amazing! I was very pleased with our natural induction method (i.e. lovemaking.) Many people commented I had an amazingly short labour for a first-time mum, about 2 hours.
