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. They were born at Burnley Central Birth Suite, East Lancashire.

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!
