Bhumi’s Birth Story: The wisest decision I made was to join Rita’s pregnancy 101

Blessed with the baby boy and had normal delivery.

So here it goes. I went for my routine checkup and at 11:30 Dr. Pragna kept a medicine to open the path and told me to get admitted by 1:30. I was 0 cm dilated. I walked for an hour with my husband and did 50 squats.

There was no pain at all and just before 5 minutes of doctors arrival, my water bag burst and it was a BLODDY SHOW. But hard luck i was still 1 cm dilated. Doc gave me choice of c section or induced and i thought for a minute and said ‘induced’. No matter what, my baby and I will rock the show. I was taken to labor room as the heart beat needed to be under observation.

At 6:30 i was induced and by 7 to 8:30 I bared the pain on the stretcher. I was yelling holding the bar. Doc came and said i was just 2 cm dilated and I started losing hopes and there comes the rock star, my husband. He said that dude you are in anti-gravity position and the best way to get dilated is to walk. He carried my drip and we started walking for an hour.

Still I was just dilated 3 cm by 9:30. He told me to started doing squats during contraction and i gave him a slang and said have u gone bonkers. He held my hand and I started talking deep breathes, held his hand and he continuously rubbed them and also gave me back massage in between. We had 10 people around but we didn’t care.

I told monish i cant bare pain and i need epidural. I took epidural at 5 cm dilation at 10:00 (squatting truly helps in dilation) My husband continuously was with me in the labor room and made me push in squat position and by 11:11 our prince charming was in my arms for skin to skin touch.

Special thanx to Noopur hospital and its staff. I was allowed to do whatever i wanted as if it was my time and my moment.

Contribution of my husband pre delivery (which is very important) He made my pregnancy so easy and cherishable. Be it leaving his xbox game midway to attend my tantrums (well that’s a big deal) or keeping awake to watch comedy series and deal my insomnia or be it making me feel confident about my body and flaunt those extra kilos of fat with pride. He truly was my biggest support.
