Just to let you know I had my baby boy James on 8/09/07 at 3.36am. He was 8lb 12 oz. It all went really well and once again the hypnosis worked a treat!* The midwife was very impressed she said she had to keep physically checking how dilated I was because normally ¬-she can tell by peoples reactions but I was too calm! Also when she went on her break another midwife took over and the first midwife informed her I was having strong contractions and was near to delivery but you just couldn’t tell from my behaviour.
