“Our baby was born at home on Fri 21st March. 7lb, 3.5oz. Official labour was 12.5hrs. We had hired an independent midwife and had planned to go into hospital but after a slightly odd reception when we called to say we were coming in, we decided to stay at home.
It was actually a very quiet day with my husband occasionally whispering to the midwife with a request for her drinks order! The hypnobirthing breathing, visualisations and music I found really helpful and the gas was also much appreciated from about 6 hours in.
Your comments on home births were influential in our decision to stay at home and if all seems to be going to be straight forward, I would certainly recommend it.”
