I just read your birthstory on your blog and wanted to tell you how much I appreciated it! I found it really interesting that you're hardest part was also my hardest part with my DS #1. I didn't do hypnobirthing but I always said I was able to enter a zone with my labour but found pushing to be the hardest part. It was interesting that that is common with hypnobirthing mamas. I really appreciate that perspective as it has given me at least a clue into why that phase was so difficult for me. I just wanted to thank you!
