Its Siobhan from the Saturday morning yoga classes Firstly wanted to
say a massive Thankyou for all your help and support throughout my
pregnancy I really enjoyed coming to your classes and I’m already missing them!
I went into labour on the Wednesday evening starting with contractions
every 20 min or so I thought that things would progress quite quickly
after the start of labour but it was not to be I continued for 6 days
in slow labour, and as my contractions never got to 3-5 minutes apart
and my waters hadn’t broke the hospital would not allow me to go in!
The only thing that got me through this tough time was using my
breathing techniques that I had learnt from pregnancy yoga and
bouncing on my yoga ball! I used my breathing techniques that much
that I found myself randomly doing them days after I had her!
Finally I went into hospital on the 6th day after insisting that I was
checked over and it turned out the baby was in a back to back position
which is why my labour wasn’t progressing. After a period of
monitoring they also discovered that the baby was in distress and
heart rate was dropping with each contraction I had. Things moved very
quickly after this, the midwife burst my waters to see if things
improved but they didn’t so I was rushed off for an emergency c
section and gave birth to Jessica Mae at 1:24 weighing 5lb11 we are all doing well now and settling into family life!
