Jennifer McDonnell’s Birth Story

Hi Ann. Just thought I’d let you know that I won’t be coming back to class. Lots of up’s and down’s with this little lady. Latest scan shows that her growth has dipped again. I’m currently 3cm but if she doesn’t make her own way out today or tomorrow I’m booked in for Sunday to be induced. Currently switching between swaying on my ball and trying to dance her out.

I shall send a picture through once she makes her grand entrance!

Thank you for all that you do, the tips, tricks, techniques and wisdom you share with us expectant mums.xxx

Next Day :- 31 August 2019- Ella Grace King. 6lb 11oz. Born at 17.53.x

I went in to check her movements as they’d reduced again. A doctor came and said my placenta wasn’t working properly and they needed to get baby out that day as she was small. Up to labour ward, had my waters broken and she was here in less than hour so no time for pain relief. The midwife also teaches hypnobirthing and was very impressed with my breathing techniques!

I’m still using them now and my ball to get through the after pains so thank you again. I’ve managed a second labour just on breathing through it. Turns out she’s a lovely weight and placenta was perfect!x

Feel free to pop story on website. I couldn’t have gotten through it without the yoga techniques!x
