Hi Iím Danielle Quinn, I am a trained and experienced HypnoBirthing practitioner (The Mongan Method) and a HypnoBirthing mum.
I have two wonderful daughters, after having my first daughter in a medical setting with epidural, pethodine and episiotomy I was anxious when I became pregnant again and was looking for a better way to birth. I couldnít understand where I had gone wrong and felt that birth should be a joyous celebration rather than a fearful ordeal.
I found HypnoBirthing! The relaxation practices alleviated my fears, I learned the breathing techniques and practiced faithfully. I began to enjoy my pregnancy and look forward to birth.
On the 23rd of November 2010 I had my second daughter peacefully and calmly. The birth was wonderful and even during a 24 hour labour I experienced no pain, there was no need for medical intervention and Elvi-Rose was birthed in silence and calm. The midwives were utterly shocked that a 10lb 3oz baby could be birthed in such comfort and quiet without the need for drugs or episiotomy.
Having such a beautiful birthing experience made me want to share this technique with the world and showed me that births like mine are possible. Our bodies and babies are truly working with us and for us.
