My partner and I went through the positive birthing course.
I was 40+2 when I had a stretch and sweep by my midwife. The following night myself and my partner got into bed and as we were falling asleep I heard a pop. I felt the bed to make sure it wasn’t my waters and the bed was dry, ten minutes later I needed the loo and as I got up water just gushed out. So I let him know and called my midwife, since my waters broke before labour I had to go straight to the hospital for antibiotics and induction... lucky for me I went into established labour straight away pretty much.
Long story short I laboured everywhere in the room but the bed. I then got into the bath tub for the birth. I started mooing and not even realising it, I felt way too relaxed in the tub so decided to get out and use land. I birthed in a squat position with my fists holding myself up!
The program definitely helped us! Whilst I may have lost sight of my goal and everything I learned went out the window, my partner reminded me to breathe and bear down!
All in all my baby girl was earthside in the most rawest and natural way.
I absolutely loved my birth, it was not calm and quiet, but so primal and raw and I feel so positive about it all.
I would not have been able to get through it if it wasn't for my amazing birth partner!
