Our baby was born at home in the water with no medical assistance. We set up a pool in the living room. Although scheduled to be there, the midwives were delayed and turned up 10 minutes after the birth - it was good to have them there to help with the placenta and cutting the cord etc though!. The birth was very natural and an amazing experience. It was awesome to have received our child this way and we feel very blessed for the experience. We attended Jeyarani ("The Gentle Birth Method") classes and watching films like "Birth As We Know It" and "Orgasmic Birth" helped a lot to prepare us mentally and physically for the experience. We also used hypnosis during the process. Sharon Waxkirsch was great at helping us create our own hypnosis script. Indirectly, I also learned an amazing amount through filming Adam Eason's Hypnosis Diploma last year.
If you're about to have a baby we hope it goes very smoothly. Thanks for watching :-)
