Natalie Grimes Birth Story

Hi Ann,

So I ended up getting induced 3 weeks early and hadn’t been able to come back.

I had William on the leap year at 8.16 am. With getting induced my plans changed slightly. I managed to get through the 40 hours with just paracetamol and codine by using my breathing techniques. Although my pain threshold is quite high, I couldn’t have done it without the 5 breaths in and 10 out. The midwifes and registrars were shocked that I didn’t need anything more.

I got told I had to deliver him pretty quickly as he started to struggle and the actual delivery only took 15 minutes.

A big thank you to you for your calming techniques they helped immensely.

With love

Natalie x
