My Birth Story: An Emergency C-Section

ParentingPregnancy / May 29, 2017 /

The 9th June marks Bells first birthday… 365 days since she turned our world upside down, I genuinely don’t know where the time has gone. It seems so crazy that this time last year I was still pregnant, completely oblivious about what was to come.

As her birthday draws closer, I can’t help but reflect on everything that’s happened and everything’s that changed…. and then of course there’s her birth.

I’ve been meaning to share my birth story on here forever, but it’s quite lengthy and somehow I couldn’t find the words to do it justice. Now that I’ve started my new YouTube channel, it seemed like the perfect way of sharing my story with you.

Many months of practising Hypnobirthing seemed to go out of the window as things spiralled out of control and resulted in an emergency C-Section. I’m really annoyed with myself that I didn’t manage to maintain my focus, I can’t help but feel that I failed. If we were blessed enough to have a second child, I know that I would want to have it naturally, just to prove to myself that I can do it.

I’d love to hear about your story, please take the time to leave a comment… I love reading them! Oh, and if you could subscribe to my channel too, that would be amazing!

Thanks guys!
