Three birth days, plenty of cake,candles and lots of laughter. That’s pretty much how the session went last night.Everyone was so relaxed and happy and positively brimming with excitement about their baby arriving, Such a turn around from the start of the course when I could tell that fear and nervousness held the stage.
Week by week these couples have relaxed, relaxed and r.e.l.a.x.e.d. Men love the relaxation times. I have been asked several times over the years if I would come to their work place and offer relaxation sessions for their boss. Always politely declined. I heard the other day that one of the partners had been so relaxed that he had fallen asleep during his partner’s labour. Obviously, not for long.
AS I clear the decks after everyone has left, I always reflect on how the evening has gone. What went well. Which aspects I could have maybe done differently. I was taught never to sit on my laurels, and never be complacent. There is always room for improvement. Feel happy how the evening panned out, and am very excited that the group are keeping in touch.
Thank you to you all for commiting to HypnoBirthing© and for making time to relax and practise all the techniques. You have been great fun and it has been a real privilege to meet you all. So looking forward to catching up soon, Annie xxx
