So here we are 15HOURS into my contractions with them 2MINUTES apart!! Carlos and my mother were so supportive given we were all surviving on no sleep!

😩 And by this stage the @mamaanditens was the only thing helping make the pain bearable.

I got out my tens machine and we started to settle into bed. We had done the hypnobirthing course and also some amazing one-on-one work with Megan from @your_best_birth. I was really feeling the visualisations and affirmations throughout the course, so I went into my “bubble of comfort” and began getting relaxed and prepared for what might be ahead. At one point I actually said to Paz, “Oh my gosh, these surges are the most beautiful and empowering thing ever” 🤭

I pushed for roughly 30 minutes before she mentioned that the baby was getting tired and the heart rate was getting a little low - She explained that with the next contraction I needed to push harder than I had before to get the baby out otherwise they would need to give me an incision to help.

Who remembers the beautiful Tahan from Big Brother in 2013? 

Tahan was keen to do all that she could to have a calm, drug free birth and to achieve just that - of course she used one of our Elle TENS machines. Watch Tahan share her uplifting and positive birth story..

All of Thursday was spent in the lounge room watching movies with Scott by my side who counted my breaths through every surge (this honestly made getting through them so much easier!) While they stayed 7mins apart, the intensity increased and I was thankful to have my @mamaanditens TENS machine for this stage of labour! By 5pm, my contractions spaced out to 15-20mins apart (which I later found out was the calm before the storm!)
