Valerie had 3 babies with epidurals.
Then she wanted to have a natural birth –
and did with baby 4.
that baby was posterior, like her first 3 and the discomfort made her not want to have another natural birth.
She had 2 more babies with epidurals.
Then she met me and with Hypnobabies decided it was worth trying to have a natural birth again.
I was her doula for her last 2 babies
Yes, she had 8 babies!
I loved interviewing Valerie.
She was one of my Hypnobabies Student – 2 times, for baby number 7 and 8!
I also was her doula for those 2 births.
She had Toxemia (high blood pressure) during her 3rd birth and was told to have no more children.
This led her on a path to alternative medicine. This allowed her to become strong enough to have more children. She got a second opinion and changed careproviders and went on to have 5 more children!
I was amazed at the story she shared about her friend who broke multiple bones and after a surgery was struggling with pain. Valerie felt inspired to lend her friend her Hypnobabies CDs and they made a huge difference.
Valerie also shares how Hypnobabies has helped her after having babies.
Of course, she shares her birth experiences and it will be especially interesting to moms who have had posterior babies, as all 8 of her babies presented that way.
