2  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Anyone did Hypnobabies or something similar for birth? on: December 07, 2010, 08:42:01 AM
Wow annisis ! What an experience! Yes next time definitely be more selfish! smile

I was very clear about NOONE coming to the hospital while I was birthing (except for my mom and husband) ... in our culture and family that was really strange and kind of rude...
family usually stand by each other in these situations, they see it as being at your service and helping out etc..

but i was very strict about not telling anyone i was having birth in the first place. And the few that did know, i told them very clearly not to come until i give birth .... a few people were upset but i really didn't care at that particular moment ... its MY birth  Wink

My birth experience was still not as I expected (as you can see from previous posts!) but i just thought I'd share this with you ... they all eventually got over it and were happy about the baby in the end Wink I think they also learned to respect people's differences ... not everyone wants a crowd or likes that much attention Wink
 
here's to better luck for all of us next time, if there ever is one Wink
3  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Anyone did Hypnobabies or something similar for birth? on: December 06, 2010, 03:07:29 PM
Hi again!

sorry I did n't reply sooner! I have been traveling so it was a little hectic for me.

It does make sense that you went to the US to have the birth that you wanted because it is too new-age for this part of the world ... all the doctors & nurses in the hospital kept asking me what was my education etc... because of the stuff i was doing (even though it was the bare minimum!)

anyway, from your description it does sound like you had a less intense experience than me because of the doula ... my mom was my birth partner and she was amazing but admittedly she didn't really use hypnobabies lines much, it was more me listening to the tracks.

i did have to lie down all through birth because my water broke really early which i am positive didnt help with the waves...i am sure there would have been more comfortable positions but i just couldn't do that.

hospital births are really very impersonal and nurses keep marching in and out .... its hard to do your own thing....

my take away then from your experience, aside from the practicing, would be to get a good hypnobabies doula ... i can try that, maybe i'll be lucky enough to find one next time around - if ever! smile


thansk so much for your input! it was really interesting and educational to read about it smile

thanks carpe vestri vita smile

I saw your reply right away but forgot to reply! Thanks for the detailed info!  I only had the track for a while as I had rented it and it was all plastic not added like yours sounds to be ...

I think it could have been too inclined like you said smile the fact that she sets her head down heavily also played factor i guess ...

6  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / baby bumping her head when on an inclined crawling track? on: October 22, 2010, 06:06:30 PM
Hi smile

so I have a kind-of crawling track. Its plastic and its inclined.

How do you prevent your baby from bumping their head on the floor when they are inclined downwards on teh crawling track?

when she gets up on all four, its only a matter of time before she collapses chin first or forehead first... right now I catch her head in my hands before she hits the floor but i thought maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Fehmina smile

Mashallah it sounds like you had a wonderful experience smile  I had a good experience as well but I would rank it lower than you definitely  yes


I hope you don't mind me asking you questions ... I'm trying to learn from my experience and hopefully do better next time!


I also slept between contractions and listened to the tracks the whole time until I had to be moved to the delivery room for pushing. Honestly I didn't have problems with the parts in between the waves, nor with the pushing because by then it was a relief that birthing would soon be over smile It was the waves themselves that reeeeeeeally HURT Sad


- how did you deal with the waves themselves?
- did you feel yourself going into hypnosis when the waves came?
- did you feel anastasia?
- where you in center or off during the waves?



Your doula / friend sounds gorgeous smile it's very sweet of her to be so dedicated ! smile

Also, that's amazing that you had a water birth smile how did you go about that in Bahrain? I'm asking because I had birth in Egypt and it's a very traditional medical community there .... everyone has the standard procedures in the hospital etc... I was really as weird as they get with my natural birth plan, tens machine etc... smile


- so is it the same where u r, how did you get a water birth arranged?
- do you think your waterbirth helped with how acute the pressure waves were?



I'm really sorry for grilling you for answers like this!

It's just great when you find someone who's in such a close cultural setting and doing the stuff that's so alien to the middle east! smile



I can't help but ask you to share your insights and tips with me so that I can use them next time around inshallah smile

THANKS a MILLION  yes  blush

14  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Preparing for the delivery on: October 20, 2010, 09:55:00 AM
A tens machine was a lifesaver for me with the pain! smile I didn't really think it would work that well  blink So I'd recommend buying / renting one...

Also hot compresses for my back and legs etc...

I swam a lot too throughout pregnancy and I think that really helped my body Wink
15  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Will phone radiation do harm to my baby? on: October 20, 2010, 09:51:04 AM
I have been reading about this and it seems ALL wireless devices are bad for you up close... especially cellphones and newly made wireless landline phones... you should ideally keep them away from your body whether pregnant or not

kids are especially vulnerable because their skull bone thickness is less than adults so it lets more radiation through...

check out these recommendations on moms for safe wireless website:
http://www.momsforsafewireless.org/100%2C000-Acts-of-Wireless-Safety.php

Has anyone tried products that reflect radiation with their cellphones??

GloriaD, have you tried these magnetic products? are they any good?

Thanks!
