    I'm probably not the best person to explain it on this forum but it's a form of self hypnosis you can use to approach birthing in a more relaxed and positive way. I like this book as it gives a bit of a spiel about history of birthing: http://www.bookdepository.com/Hypnob.../9780757302664

    There's also an area on bubhub that is specifically for hypno birthing and calm birthing.

    And fyi, my first birth was 23 hours bu with my son it was around 3-5 hours (I didn't know I was actually in labour).

    I've heard the English NHS system can be pretty rough. Are you going through the private system here? Perhaps ask around for recommendations for an obstetrician who would really suit your needs (someone who will be calming). If you're in Melbourne I can highly recommend mine.

    And I found the hospital wasn't understaffed, and I had a midwife permanently with me my whole labor, she really helped me relax. I also recommend doing a hypnobirthing course.

    I had a horrid labour with my first. 22hrs, 3.5hrs pushing, vacuum extraction, 3rd deg episiotomy, 4th deg tears, repair under GA.

    My second labour was great, 3hrs, 19min breathing (I didn't push, Google breathing your baby out). I stayed as upright as possible. I got 2nd deg tears due to his position. I just did lots of research on reducing tearing. I stayed at home as long as possible and I refused most interventions (drugs, internals, monitoring and coached pushing). Most importantly, I trusted my body.

    Good luck.

    If you are going private you can have an elective c-section if it is the labour you're worried about

    Thank you! I'm going to do exactly that! We have started trying now. Very excited. Finally have my head wrapped around the fact that I need to trust my body and get on with it!

    True. Never really thought about a c-section to be honest, but definitely an option. I'll need to find myself a good OB to give me some advice.

    I had a 40 hour labour with my first baby. I felt completely out of control & terrified the entire time. I had every pain relief available, gas, pethedine & epidural, plus delivery interventions that included forceps. It took me almost 3 years to even consider having another baby.

    But we did! My second labour was the most empowering & unforgettable experience of my life! I was induced, the labour only lasted about 1.5 hours & I only used gas for pain relief. Immediately afterwards I felt like I could do it all over again. I was literally on a "high" for several days afterwards - just incredible.

    Jump in the deep end, you won't be sorry!
    I just had my third (a week ago, so it's still fresh in my mind) and my first labour was a 20 hour disaster! But 2 and a half years later I had my second. This time I knew what I wanted, and I understood my body & what it was telling me better. Labour cut to 12 hours, and I coped much better this time with pain & everything. Third time (after a huge 16 year break!!) I was I tune with my pain, and coped so well that they weren't sure I was in active labour until I told them to examine me & I was 4cm!
    I went so quickly that my husband almost missed it! Was in active labour for 2hours & 11 mins, no pain relief at all except for gas while I was pushing!
    All three of my children were worth anything I went through, and I would say go for it
