Wendy’s Positive Birth with Epidural

“Thank you, Yen! Your prenatal classes were very helpful especially the last few days as I got thrown into breastfeeding at 2-hour intervals. I was flipping through your notes on all the crying cures and how to latch etc. Fortunately, Lila latched quite well and has been quite a calm baby. At least, when she cries, we understand why.” ~ Wendy Chua, first time mother

I Felt More Like Pressure Than Pain

My birth didn’t go as planned. I was feeling more Braxton contractions towards Sunday when I was due to be admitted at night for the inducement. I knew my cervix was softening and I was closed but may have needed that extra trigger. They gave me prostaglandins to soften the cervix at midnight. By 3.00 am, I started having labour contractions. By 8.00 am, it was at 2 minutes interval and quite intense. But I was only 2cm dilated. I was still managing the contractions quite well in the ward, feeling them more like pressure than pain.But when I went down to the delivery suite, things quickly got out of my control. They got me strapped down again with the heartbeat monitor, take a laxative to clear my bowels and blood pressure reading etc. And of course all the questions about pain level despite our birth plan stating not to ask that. I had to negotiate at every step asking when can I have the birth ball, when can I get off the bed because lying down made the contractions worse.

Pitocin Stress Me Up

My Doctor wanted to proceed to the next step which was breaking the waterbag and giving me the Pitocin drip and she did that. I guess the stress built up and at a certain moment, the contractions visibly went from pressure to pain. And it was very difficult to go back to relaxing and breathing it away. Also, with it being so intense at 2 minutes interval and the doctor estimated I still needed 8 hours to dilate, I opted for the epidural. I also slept little and was mentally exhausted to manage the contractions.

My Baby Rejected Pitocin

But the good thing is my body was actually responding to the pill and did not need additional drugs. The baby rejected the Pitocin with heartbeat dipping every time it was given so they switched it off and realised my contractions continued and my dilation was happening fast. So in the end, I didn’t need the second step and my baby avoided the Pitocin as much as possible. I was 10 cm opened by 3-4 pm, after 7hrs.

The Birthing Deviated From the Book

They maintained a low dosage of epidural and lowered it further for the birthing and I started feeling the contractions again. But the birthing was another experience that deviated from the book. The nurses insisted on guided pushing and me holding my breath. I had to sit there negotiating with her and she would tell me to try but it would not work to just breathe down. I had to push instead, but holding my breath was really counter-intuitive and I could not feel I am achieving anything though the nurse assured me the baby was moving. I pushed (though mentally not clench my teeth and relax my vaginal muscles) and had to hold my breath and direct the force down through the abdominal to the vagina as they guided. But still, after an hour, the baby hasn’t crowned.

I Was Exhaused From Pushing

I was quite exhausted but my baby was not near to crowning. So, in the end, another nurse came in and they helped to push my belly. Following, my gynae came in and I told her to help with a ventouse suction if possible. So we tried three times with this team effort and on the third, she cut and did a bit of vacuum, on top of with the help of the nurses pushing my belly while I pushed. Lila came out. I had a second-degree cut that was stitched but didn’t reach the anus.Lila was born 3.345kg heavy and had a big head of 36cm. So even though she was anterior the last phase was tough. Because she seemed to be pressing on my tailbone. I had a horrible back pain that I needed Gucci to massage while I waited for the next surge to push. It was quite unbearable this ache in the tailbone because of the baby’s weight.

I Would Get a Doula & a Pro-HypnoBirth Doctor

Looking back, I was hoping to labour naturally at home and be able to manage contractions without medical equipment strapped to me with my familiar birth ball and labour tools available at home. But having a doctor that supports this is critical and I guess my doctor and her team were not pro-Hypno. I asked to be free from being strapped to the heart rate monitor but at that moment the only mobile heart monitor was in room 15 with Dr Paul Tseng’s patient. And my Doctor insisted on constant observation of the baby’s condition since I am already in active management and medically induced.

I have two friends who successfully managed their births with natural labour with HypnoBirthing. And they both had Doulas. I guess if I were to try this again, I would definitely get a doula and go to Dr Lai FM or Dr Paul Tseng who are known to be pro-Hypno. Maybe also for my second birth, my body will be more ready the next time.

When My Baby Cries, I Know Why!

Nonetheless, I think HypnoBirthing lessons really helped Gucci and me understand the birthing process so much more and I would not be able to remain calm in this entire birth process without it. Especially in the last few weeks. And being calm with breastfeeding and a crying baby.

But when I went down to the delivery suite, things quickly got out of my control. They got me strapped down again with the heartbeat monitor, take a laxative to clear my bowels and blood pressure reading etc. And of course all the questions about pain level despite our birth plan stating not to ask that.

Lila was heavy 3.345kg and had a big head 36cm diameter so even though she was anterior the last phase was tough.

Hypnobirthing stories – The Story of Natural Birth and testimonials collected from Birth Discovery Singapore.

Lorraine and Yanto took HypnoBirthing class with Kong Choon Yen on 7 May 2014 to prepare for their second birth. Because her first birth experience was traumatic and that she had lots of fear during her second pregnancy as a result. She was generous and agreed to share her birth story with hoping that her story can inspire other parents out there.

She found the Surge Breathing useful while she was bouncing on the birth ball and enjoyed her surges/contraction. She utilised Birth Breathing to breathe her baby down and visualised baby moving down the birth path to crowning. When I asked her how she described her birth, she replied to me as “The Most Wonderful and Gentle Birth Experience Ever”. Baby Austin was born in August 2014.

How can dads get hands-on and chip in to make pregnancy a smooth and enjoyable experience for mum?

An event as momentous as this is going to bring about changes to the balance in your relationship. Your wife is growing a new life inside her, so it’s not surprising that she will focus on the baby, which may make you feel a bit disconnected or a little left out of some parts of the process.

This is perfectly normal, but rather than feel left out, encourage your wife to share her feelings — both physical and emotional — with you, so that you can bond over every foetus kick, get through morning sickness, and read up on pregnancy-related information as a team. Additionally, me-time always helps. Preparing to be a good father doesn’t mean obsessing about it every minute of the day. Remember to engage in your usual hobbies, relax, and enjoy the process.

Help your wife manage her emotions better!

As much as pregnancy is a shared experience, your wife will be experiencing a heady mix of hormonal changes that will affect her physically and emotionally. Mood swings, fatigue and anxiety about the upcoming labour are totally normal.

Going to Antenatal Classes and Care Visits Together

It’s important to make sure that your wife doesn’t feel like she’s going through the pregnancy alone, so if you do suggest an antenatal class, why not accompany her? Not only is this a great way to pick up information to prepare you for labour, but going as a couple may also help you make new friends who are also undergoing this journey.

Helping During Labour and Delivery

  • Don’t shy away. Be close by to provide reassurance to your wife.
  • Physical contact can be a great calming influence, so hold her hand, wipe her face and stroke her hair — whatever she wants.
  • Assign yourself the role of chief hydrator and feed her regular sips of water.
  • Many mothers experience back pain and sore muscles during labour, so be at hand to give a gentle and soothing massage.
  • Changing positions may also help to relieve sore muscles, although your wife may find it difficult to shift on her own, so be there to help her.
  • Time to use those breathing techniques you mastered in pre-birth class. With the stress and disorientation brought on by her labour, your wife may have forgotten everything she’s learnt.
  • Remind her, and take long slow breaths alongside her.
