Carla, Rob and twins Cora and Alfie

Carla and Rob did a full private Hypnobirthing course to prepare for the birth of their twins, their second pregnancy. Carla was planning for a vaginal birth and after spontaneous labour chose to have a Caesarean due to the position of the lower baby.

Carla is holding her newborn twins wrapped in blankets wearing hats. She is lying on a hospital bed smiling.

I wanted to say thank you so much for all your support during my pregnancy and birth. I had such a good experience! I ended up having a C-section due to the lower baby being footling breech. However, I went into labour naturally which I was soooo happy about. I was already in hospital being monitored with signs of pre-eclampsia. I got to 6cm dilated coping with just the breathing techniques and I knew straight away that my waters had broken. I was so calm and excited! I also felt in control which was an amazing feeling. Another thing I found interesting was I never once used the word pain. I kept saying that I could feel pressure but no pain. The birth was quite honestly amazing and it made me want to do it again!
