It was great at first, i remember it really helped me focus on my breathing but it also made me vomit and shake.
1st baby- I really had no idea how to use it it made me sick and yuck and nearly falling of the bed so I have it for probably 30mins then got epi!
2nd baby- used it again and properly this time! Probably a little off my head as I kept repeating things like if I looked at the door I repeatedly looked at it about 10 times over and over again until I came out of it! Was able to have bub without anything else (was very happy with his birth)
3rd baby - had it, felt fine until I had an episode where I felt like I was dieing! It has scared the living crap out of me I could not sleep the night after having him for fear it was all a dream! The midwifed and my partner also freaked out! I was on the bed and the midwife would walk In and ask me if I was okay then I would drop out! This happened over and over again that in my head I told myself I had to get up and that's when I started grabbing my partner and came too! They took the gas away after that episode and I went on to deliver him without anything!
Can't say I would or wouldn't use it again however! I'm serverly still freaked out by the episode I'm considering councelling!
