Jodie’s Birth Story

第一胎妈妈Jodie的顺产故事

My membrane releases in the early morning. I feel like visit my doc, so I went to hospital. Vaginal dilated 3cm.

Nothing happened after it. I told doc I want to go home for rest. So during the whole day I still manage to walk on treadmill for 2 hours at slow speed. After shower and dinner, I went to hospital again to check baby’s heart rate and take antibiotics to prevent infections.

I have stronger feeling around 12 midnight, after checking baby’s heart rate. Doc promised not to do vaginal check until tomorrow morning. Around 1am, I started to feel the frequent discomfort. But still bearable.

Around 3am, the surges are getting stronger, I requested a virginal checked myself.Midwife said already 6cm. They send me to the delivery suite to stand-by.

At That time already kicked start very fast. Once admitted to the ward, my doc came in and check again. It’s 8cm. But I didn’t have time counting already. Time is meaningless at that moment.

I found that breathing techniques of HypnoBirthing is workable to reduce pain definitely.

It’s midnight, and I am quite exhausted. Good thing is the positive thinking keeps me and baby both safe and alert.

During the surges, my hubby do light touch massage for me, this is very helpful. When fully dilated, he rubs my lower back. That helps. J breathing is good. I can feel the “chi” came down to my pelvic and the pelvic bone.

Baby was looking for breast immediately after birth. Sucking heavily and totally awaked. This is a precious memory for me, it will be in my heart forever ❤️

Thanks 姍姍 for encouraging thru the whole journey. It makes a difference without you.

【导师手记】

Jodie在35周左右时给我发来信息,原本头已经转下去的宝宝又把头转上去了。

我和她约了时间,给她做了一次催眠放松,然后给了一些姿势调整的建议,同时请她多做视觉化想象、多和宝宝沟通。

她真的超努力,“我做了很多很多很多事情”,她说。果然,再一次产检时,宝宝头又转下去了。

终于,她如愿在没有使用无痛分娩的情况下自然产(还记得上课前后她多次和我提到这件事)。产程在半夜开始,难免比较累,好在宝宝和她的状态都还不错。

隔天傍晚,她给我发来信息说:休息后体能一级棒,已经下床走动“、”感觉痛的时间不长,我是半夜1点半后才有强烈宫缩,到感觉不行时,已经开到8指,那时才不过3点左右,之后就等一下后就回来全开了。

”她给我发来了照片,看到照片里她们一家三口,我也觉得好幸福啊。
