Beverley Turner & James Cracknell: Our Experience. Beverley: Helianthe's hypnobirthing gave me a birth experience that I could only have dreamt about. Like all women I was anxious and uncertain about what to expect. We were aiming for a natural birth at London's Birth Centre but everyone kept telling me it was a ridiculous idea and I should go for the drugs. I was determined to prove them wrong and I did! I was in the middle of writing a book about Formula One and knew that being laid up with a caesarean scar would be very debilitating. As it turned out, I gave birth at 9.30 am and was back home, watching the Grand Prix and taking notes by 10pm. The next day I went for a walk to the river. When my waters broke I was calm and confident that my body would do exactly what I needed it to. I stayed at home and began cleaning like a mad woman. As the evening drew on my tummy felt tighter but not at all painful because I was so relaxed. James and I watched TV in front of the fire with lots of pillows. The midwives had been round and checked on me once but I wanted to watch the end of Sex in th City and said I would call them if I wanted to go to the Birth Centre. It was all very instinctive and I firmly believe that is because of the Hypnobirthing training. The midwives knew that Hypnobirthing mums give birth much more quickly but accepted my decision totally. Finally at 3am I called them and we went into the Birth Centre where I got in the birthing pool. We played the hypnobirthing tape over and over and in my notes I apparently said "This is bliss." James wasn't as well- rehearsed as I would have liked (I have made him suffer with that ever since) but he counted my breaths and turned the tape over. I did get very tired towards the end but when I got of the bath in order to get gravity on side our little boy appeared pretty quickly. Because I was relaxed and because I had spent a few hours in the water, I didn't need any stitches and had no tearing whatsoever. Croyde fed well and was a lovely calm baby (he is less so now...maybe Helianthe can do some hypnosis on a boisterous 14 month old!!) I will never give birth any other way. It was a revelation and I'm afraid I have become a bit evangelical about it. I recommended Helianthe to a friend who had had a terribly traumatic time with her first - lots of intervening doctors and an emergency c-section. She has since had a beautiful big baby girl completely naturally at home and is elated by her experience - all the doctors had told her it wasn't possible. My ante-natal pals also suffered a myriad of complications as a direct result of meddling doctors and their own - understandable - anxieties. Over half were given c-sections. I cannot recommend Hypnobirthing enough. I even find myself doing some of the breathing techniques when I am about to broadcast on TV or Radio! The relaxation skills are very useful in everyday life. James: When Bev said she wanted to do Hypnobirthing I was very sceptical. You might think that as an athlete I would believe in the power of the mind but I needed some convincing. The main problem with our lessons with Helianthe were Bev's giggles. She couldn't stop laughing and on a few occasions she had to go into the garden to get it out of her system. I had hoped to be able to put her in a trance every time I needed a shirt ironing but no luck. The lessons themselves were great for me too as I got to have a lie down and do some deep relaxation. As I had normally come straight from a training session on the river I quickly fell asleep. But it didn't matter - although Bev was embarrassed by my snoring. I was away a lot during our pregnancy but Bev listened to the tapes and seemed very relaxed about the whole thing. I realized during the birth that I wasn't as well prepared as I should have been and felt bad about it. At one point I asked bev if she was ok and she growled back "Don't ASK me if I'm ok, TELL me I am!" She was more annoyed with me than with giving birth...tip for the dads...do your homework. it will make your lives a lot easier and your partners birth much calmer. I was so proud of Bev and the way she kept in control throughout. I held her head in the water for about 4 hours and all the callouses on my hands peeled off. It hurt like hell when I got back in the rowing boat. Bev said it served me right for not being better prepared. Next time I will try harder and we will certainly do the training again. I think it is understandable to be nervous and I expect that Bev will need to have any negativity erased again. People are always telling us their horror stories. Helianthe's service actually went beyond the hypnobirthing and she ended up giving us an afternoon of marriage guidance when the stress of the pregnancy, me being away and the looming Olympics all came crashing in on us. Bev was struggling to explain how she was feeling and I wasn't doing a good job of listening. Helianthe gave us a safe, objective space to discuss our concerns in and it worked brilliantly. We owe her and hypnobirthing an awful lot. ______________________________________________________________ Hypnobirthing Story Elena Dear helianthe, We are extremely happy to inform you about the miraculous arrival of our baby boy Alexander. That was unbelievably easy and comfortable birthing. Waters broken at 5 a.m., that I went back to sleep and woke up at 7:15 because of surges (very mild surges). I remained in bed and we chatted over different things. At 8:15 the interval between surges became 7 minutes and each surge lasted for 1 minute, so we phoned our midwife Maddie. When she arrived one hour later the surges were already with the interval of 2-3 minutes each lasting 1 minute. Surprisingly I felt no discomfort at all, just mild tension. I was easily coming back after each surge and we discussed whether we are going to the Birth Centre or staying at home. Having considered all risk factors we decided to stay at HOME (and that was the right decision). At about 10 am went to the toilet and felt really strong and very painful surge. At this moment I started panicking, thinking that this is it, this is the real birthing starts, and now this pain will be there for at least several hours (Mikhail felt absolutely the same, he came to me wishing to help me back to bed). While I was in the toilet Maddie and Rachel (midwives) quickly unpacked birthing matte and covered everything with disposable sheets. On my way back to bed I had to stop and get on my knees, as I had a strongest wish to push. I was expecting the midwives would tell me not to push and breathe, but they kept saying that everything is OK. So one push - and Alexanders head was born together with one of his hands (he was holding his ear). Another push - and Alexander arrived to this world. 16 minutes later placenta was born. I had no bruises no nothing. I was absolutely shocked by the ease and comfort of the process (it seems to me now that till the very end I was not 100% sure that this is possible at all). Mikhail was absolutely delighted. He also was not expecting everything to be so perfect and great. Alexander is one week old now. He is a very calm and smiley boy, sleeping and eating a lot. He almost never cries (only when I change his nappy). Anna was at home and came to see her little brother just 20 minutes after he was born. She adores Alexander and really likes to spend time with him, showing him toys, talking to him or singing to him. We would really like to thank you for everything you have done to make our experience unforgettable and just perfect. Sincerely, Elena, Mikhail, Anna and Alexander Hi Helianthe We had a beautiful baby girl on Tuesday 27th April. She was 6 days early, born at home and I didn’t have any pain relief. My labour start in the early hours of Monday 26th April. It was all fine and I used the hypnobirthing breathing techniques to manage the surges. I went to get my legs waxed when I was having surges every 5/6 minutes. Sue who did the leg wax couldn’t quite believe it but I had this real thing about not giving birth with hairy legs. Anyway she was amazed how calm I was at the time. To be fair though the leg wax was worse than the surges at that stage! By 6.30pm labour was well established and Becky arrived at 7.15pm. I was really starting to feel the surges but kept breathing through them. As the labour progressed I kept up the breathing and listened to the hypnobirthing tape and tried to do the visualisations. It did become a bit painful towards the end and I did yell a bit! When it came to actually delivering the baby it was amazing. I started pushing and didn’t really feel very much then I gave a huge push and felt her head being delivered. Becky told me that with one more push the baby would be delivered. I gathered my breath and pushed and her little body just dropped out. When I saw her for the first time it was just awesome. The cord was cut and the placenta delivered 10 minutes later and then Becky ran us a bath and the baby and I got in it together, I had her cradled in my arms and she was so calm but alert it was just such an incredible experience. Becky & Rachel tucked Adam, Amber and myself up in bed and left about 3.30am. I couldn’t sleep as I was so excited, I spent the rest of the night awake just watching her. Amber is just over 3 weeks old now and she’s really thriving. I often think about the labour and delivering her and I am so delighted it went the way I wanted it to. So many people go on about what a bad birthing experience they had and I feel very proud to be able to talk about mine in such a positive manner. Hypnobirthing helped give me the confidence, belief and techniques to be able to have that wonderful experience and for that I want to thank you for sharing hypnobirthing with us. It made the birth I wanted a reality. Hope to see you at some point in the future. Love, Carole, Adam & Amber xxx Hi Helianthe,   It is hard to believe that nearly two years since we did your class. I can remember Daniel's birth like it was yesterday and unbelievably am about to have a second baby.   Alistair and I attended your class in May. Both being logical bankers, we were very sceptical of the hypnobirthing concept -and knowing little about it - but I wanted to be armed with as many weapons in my arsenal as possible for the pending labour. We left the class complete converts and I am a vocal advocate of it after giving birth to Daniel. It wasn't a perfect experience but it was as close to perfect as I could've expected.   My mucous plug went on my due date 25 June. On the 26th, I started to get what I can only describe as period pains. I met the girls for coffee and mentioned the niggles and they were like "Elaine, you're in labour". But I completely dismissed it. By late afternoon, my husband urged me to call the hospital. I felt a little foolish doing so as I was sure it couldn't be labour. They told me not to worry and it wasn't labour until the pains moved higher up (they never did for the record!). I sold my car that night and drove the new owners to the motorway, all the while with intermittent pains. The contractions were every 5 minutes or so and would last for 90 seconds - another reason I didn't think it was labour as all the books had said, they'd only last maximum of a minute.   By midnight, Alistair was urging me to go to to the hospital. I really didn't want to go and be sent home as we had heard of happening so many times. But to appease him we went. I told him not to bother packing my hospital bag but he insisted. We were examined around 1am and she said the cervix was softening and there were signs of early labour. As she was asking if we'd like to stay or go home, my waters broke. I was at zero centremetres.   Once my waters broke,things started moving much quicker and I started doing my hypno exercises and sat on my ball. Two hours later I asked to be examined but they refused saying they only checked every 3 hours as labour was a long process. After 3 hours of contractions every 90 seconds, lasting 90 seconds and them telling me that the best I should expect is a centremetre dialation per hour, I insisted on being examined and asked for an epidural believing I was 3 cm dilated. The midwife was visibly shocked when she saw I was 7 cm dilated. I wish I'd insisted on an earlier exam or not listened to them about the one cm an hour because by this time I had talked myself into an epidural.   Alistair was little help as he was feeling helpless as it was, having not done much preparation with me. He was just as keen to rest as I was. I never imagined I would want to slow things down, all the prep I had done was to speed things up. The epidural allowed us both to sleep and a new midwife came on duty. She read my notes and noted my request for natural. She said we could wait for the epidural to wear off instead of topping it up, this would also reduce the risk of tearing. I suddenly felt much more at ease, all that kept coming into my head was "I trust my body and my baby to know what to do" from my affirmations.   Daniel emerged that Wednesday morning after a six and half hour labour. I had no tearing or stitches despite his head being in the 98th percentile on the birthing chart. I have to credit a good midwife that respected my birthplan but the most credit is down to you, Helianthe and the hypno concept.   I am really looking forward to this second birth. I am hoping this time it will be perfect. I know if I want to slow things down, I should try the birthing pool rathing than resorting to an epidural. I will be eternally grateful to you for the warm experience that I took away from giving birth the first time.   Tragically so many girls in my ante natal NCT class had awful experiences with lots of intervention. One of those girls who is a good friend of mine is still so traumatised by the experience nearly two years on, she still cannot bring herself to talk about it and has made a firm decision of no further children. The sad thing is, I had a feeling she was going to have a bad experience because prior to giving birth in the weeks leading up to it, she was terrified. She was dreading the whole experience and kept saying how unprepared she felt, I believe it was this fear that contributed to her poor experience.   I can only apologise that it has taken me so long to write and tell you about it but I'm glad I finally did and I hope it won't take me as long to report back on the perfect second labour!   I hope all is well with you and your family.   Kind Regards, Elaine (Elaine's second birth)________________________________________ Hi Helianthe,   My darling daughter arrived on the 23rd April - 10 days late but she was completely forgiven as I had a dream birth.   I refused a sweep when she was 7 days overdue and instead went for a session of reflexology. On the 23rd April, I woke up at 12.50am to do usual trip to the loo. Whilst I was sitting on the toilet, I felt the urge to go but nothing happened. I got up and went back to bed, 5 mins later another surge happened. When the 3rd followed 5 minutes after that, I realised the time had come and it wasn't the loo I needed but I was going to have a baby! I woke my husband at 1.15am and told him to call a friend that was going to come and look after Daniel while we went to the hospital. He then called the hospital and told them that by now my contractions were just a few minutes apart.   We arrived at the hospital at 2am, Alistair was giving me visualisations we had practiced, whilst driving, and telling me to breathe.  I walked up to the ward carrying my birthing ball and stopped to sit on it each time I felt a surge which really helped. When we got into the birthing room, I asked Alistair to attach the Tens machine as the surges were coming thick and fast. The midwife examined me and we were all stunned to hear I was 9.50cm dialated! She asked me to lie on the bed but I had an overwhelming urge to kneel so I told her that is what I was going to do. She propped the back of the bed up to I could hold it with my stomach against it. All through the late stages of my pregnancy I had worked on a visualisation my sister had given me when she told me her story and that was that her daughter Charlotte just slipped out, so I tried to think daily about all the amniotic fluid and the baby just slipping it. I believe that visualisation worked because, I felt my stomach do what I can only describe as 2 upside down vomits and Jessica popped out. She was born at 2.23am just 20 mins after arriving at the hospital and an hour and a half after I woke up. With retrospect, my body had been preparing for days as I felt a lot of bearing down and it was becoming more difficult to walk around - or run around after a busy toddler. Jessica weighed a very healthy 9lbs 2oz which surpised everyone, not least of all me because of my slight frame. My perinium was fully intact and my uterus contracted back very quickly.   Once again, I attribute this very good birth experience - even better than my first, to hyponobirthing and the tools that it gave me to prepare my body. I had a lot more trust in myself and my body this time and the conviction to tell the medical staff what I wanted rather than trusting that they know best - childbirth is totally natural and all women should be encouraged by the midwives to trust their instincts rather than be instructed as to what to do.   Helianthe, I'll be eternally grateful to you for having given me the tools to ensure that both my children's births were filled with wonderful memories and instead of fear and anguish. I hope and trust many more of your students will be able to share such positive memories with you that you were instrumental in making.   Kind Regards, Elaine   ________________________________________

At hospital fully dilated! 'I attended Helianthe's group workshop to prepare for the birth of my first child.  I was feeling very panicky and tense about giving birth and had a genuine fear. When I went to the workshop it was a like a breath of fresh air being with Helianthe who was so positive about birthing and really made me feel like I could do it.  I instantly felt much better about giving birth and felt empowered by the techniques given to me.  Before doing hypnobirth I wanted to have full pain relief but I went on to have a wonderful birth.  I got to the hospital at 10cms dilated and I had my daughter with no pain relief or tears an hour later.'

She was dreading the whole experience and kept saying how unprepared she felt, I believe it was this fear that contributed to her poor experience.   I can only apologise that it has taken me so long to write and tell you about it but I'm glad I finally did and I hope it won't take me as long to report back on the perfect second labour!   I hope all is well with you and your family.   Kind Regards, Elaine (Elaine's second birth)________________________________________ Hi Helianthe,   My darling daughter arrived on the 23rd April - 10 days late but she was completely forgiven as I had a dream birth.   I refused a sweep when she was 7 days overdue and instead went for a session of reflexology. On the 23rd April, I woke up at 12.50am to do usual trip to the loo. Whilst I was sitting on the toilet, I felt the urge to go but nothing happened. I got up and went back to bed, 5 mins later another surge happened. When the 3rd followed 5 minutes after that, I realised the time had come and it wasn't the loo I needed but I was going to have a baby! I woke my husband at 1.15am and told him to call a friend that was going to come and look after Daniel while we went to the hospital. He then called the hospital and told them that by now my contractions were just a few minutes apart.   We arrived at the hospital at 2am, Alistair was giving me visualisations we had practiced, whilst driving, and telling me to breathe.  I walked up to the ward carrying my birthing ball and stopped to sit on it each time I felt a surge which really helped. When we got into the birthing room, I asked Alistair to attach the Tens machine as the surges were coming thick and fast. The midwife examined me and we were all stunned to hear I was 9.50cm dialated! She asked me to lie on the bed but I had an overwhelming urge to kneel so I told her that is what I was going to do. She propped the back of the bed up to I could hold it with my stomach against it. All through the late stages of my pregnancy I had worked on a visualisation my sister had given me when she told me her story and that was that her daughter Charlotte just slipped out, so I tried to think daily about all the amniotic fluid and the baby just slipping it. I believe that visualisation worked because, I felt my stomach do what I can only describe as 2 upside down vomits and Jessica popped out. She was born at 2.23am just 20 mins after arriving at the hospital and an hour and a half after I woke up. With retrospect, my body had been preparing for days as I felt a lot of bearing down and it was becoming more difficult to walk around - or run around after a busy toddler. Jessica weighed a very healthy 9lbs 2oz which surpised everyone, not least of all me because of my slight frame. My perinium was fully intact and my uterus contracted back very quickly.   Once again, I attribute this very good birth experience - even better than my first, to hyponobirthing and the tools that it gave me to prepare my body. I had a lot more trust in myself and my body this time and the conviction to tell the medical staff what I wanted rather than trusting that they know best - childbirth is totally natural and all women should be encouraged by the midwives to trust their instincts rather than be instructed as to what to do.   Helianthe, I'll be eternally grateful to you for having given me the tools to ensure that both my children's births were filled with wonderful memories and instead of fear and anguish. I hope and trust many more of your students will be able to share such positive memories with you that you were instrumental in making.   Kind Regards, Elaine   ________________________________________

At hospital fully dilated! 'I attended Helianthe's group workshop to prepare for the birth of my first child.  I was feeling very panicky and tense about giving birth and had a genuine fear. When I went to the workshop it was a like a breath of fresh air being with Helianthe who was so positive about birthing and really made me feel like I could do it.  I instantly felt much better about giving birth and felt empowered by the techniques given to me.  Before doing hypnobirth I wanted to have full pain relief but I went on to have a wonderful birth.  I got to the hospital at 10cms dilated and I had my daughter with no pain relief or tears an hour later.'
