Audrey’s parents, Lyra and Lee Elder, were model students of Portland Hypnobabies. I am so proud of them!
Please feel free to share their story with friends and family so the world can learn how peaceful birth can be.
Audrey Pauline Elder’s Birth Story ~ 8.21.12 ~ 5:54 am ~ 7 lbs, 7 oz
We transferred our care to Andaluz Watherbirth Center Monday morning (8.20.12) at 41 weeks and 5 days, only 2 days to 42 weeks, the day our OB wanted us to induce. Our initial intake appointment at Birth Center was at 4 pm Monday afternoon, at that point I was having some “different” feeling pressure waves and I had been experiencing some new cramping sensations for the past few days.
After our appointment, my husband, Lee and I went out to Vietnamese downtown and had some spicy Pho soup and went for a walk along the waterfront. At this point, I was experiencing manageable pressure waves and we noticed they seemed to be occurring a bit more consistently, about every 20-30 minutes apart. After our walk we headed home, with a lot of excitement and anticipation of “could this really be IT? ~ finally, the day we have been waiting for these 10 long months.
