ok so finished my hypnobirth book and listened to the cd. Very easy to relax to but when i'm in the middle of a surge, i dont know if i can zone everything out enough. I sense my hubby is not as on board with this as i am, hes making hypnosis gags and such. Trouble is we are on our own out here and i have noone else so if he wont help me then i'm on my own and alot of this technique relies on your birth companions prompts, massage and support. i am so desperate to avoid the hospital and its interventions but i'm scared. With counseling, i'm beginning to work out some stuff and have really positive thoughts about this birth. I have 22 weeks roughly to get my head into a good space and i truely believe i can, i just wish i had more family and friends around

I'm planning a home birth, and I honestly don't want anyone other than my DH there.. I did ask my SIL to watch DS though, and she was a great back massage-er the 1st time around. I guess I kept asking for her, because DH was too afraid to hardly touch me & it didn't help at all!!

I would try getting a doula. If your DH isn't going to be supportive of the fact that you want to do Hypnobirthing, then I would try to find someone else for support. I know here in the states, a lot of doulas in training will offer their services at a reduced rate or even free because they need the experience in order to get certified...so maybe try looking in your area for someone like that or calling a midwife and seeing who she would recommend. I thought about hiring a doula myself, but truthfully I'm very lucky to have an amazingly supportive partner who knows just how I need to be touched when I'm in pain...and also knows when to back off if I need him to.

Anyone heard from (TantricLemons)? I saw she posted she was in labor 16 hours ago and I was just wondering if she might have messaged anyone in here. I really hope she got her VBAC!

I had her last night @ 11. She was 9lbs 1oz 21 inches. I was in labor for almost 29 hours. Early labor for a while. I got to the hospital and was at a 2, then it took 2 hours to dilate from a 2-7, But then another 13 to finish. I was at a 10 with a lip for hours. I was literally in transition for 3-4 hours. I wouldnt dilate further. I finally had to get an epi at 10, and then rest for an hour and then i pushed her out. I got a decent tear by my urethra and my hems are out of control. Can barley sit. But got my VBAC.
