We welcomed a beautiful little girl into the world on 11 December. Due date was 25 but i was induced at 38 weeks due to high blood pressure.
I was a little apprehensive about the induction and after a day of 2 failed prostin gels we tried again the next day and my waters were broken to get things moving. Progressed to 4cms and was put on the Synto drip. Things progressed quickly from there. 3.5 hrs of active labour, 40 mins pushing and bubs was here. Completely drug free vaginal birth with no tearing.
I found the rhythmic breathing worked so well for me during the contractions. I didn't get the water birth i so badly wanted but it was an amazing birth experience all the same and I wouldn't change it!
I'm still amazed that i managed to bring this little treasure into the world!
