A mother of four claims she enjoyed a three-week orgasm after childbirth.

Emily Street, 35, who lives with husband Paul, 34, had her first pain-free labour when she gave birth to her oldest, Oscar, now aged nine.

Emily, from Hale, Cheshire, said: ‘I was really quite terrified having seen loads of things as a midwife, and obviously the things that really stick with you are the ones that weren’t so nice.

‘I remember being heavily pregnant with Oscar, sitting on the sofa a nervous wreck and just bursting into tears saying, ‘I don’t know how I’m going to do this’.’

Emily researched ‘natal hypnotherapy’ and enrolled on a three-part course which included hypnobirthing which taught her to control the pain through breathing techniques, reports Daily Mail.

She added: ‘Back then, hypnobirthing wasn’t popular. Hardly anyone had heard of it.

‘While Paul and my family and friends were supportive I’m sure they were thinking: “Yeah, right, you’re saying this now but let’s see how you deal with the pain. She’ll still have an epidural”.

‘In the end, I didn’t tell many people – I decided I should probably keep it under wraps.

‘But during the tail end of pregnancy, after learning about hypnobirthing, I definitely felt more relaxed about what was coming, rather than dreading it.

‘The whole idea behind hypnobirthing is distraction in order to keep you calm and to conserve your energy.

‘The euphoria that I felt after the births was very, very close to an orgasm sensation, which lasted for three or four weeks as opposed to something that’s very intense for a short amount of time.

‘From my point of view, I’m happy with that.

‘People think that hypnobirthing is this airy-fairy, hippie, new age thing, but it’s really not. It’s a real, back to basics principal.

‘There’s not a midwife or doctor in the land who’d argue that a relaxed woman isn’t going to find labour more easy.

‘I absolutely loved every minute of being in labour. I don’t want any more children but I would love to have that sensation again.

‘I’m gutted I won’t ever experience it because I think it’s absolutely amazing.’

In August we shared a story of a Mum who claims she first experienced an orgasm during the birth of her third son.  There was also the Aussie mum who shared she is “addicted to giving birth”.

  • Had no trouble giving birth and loved being pregnant – I had four babies and apart from an emergency Caesar – breech baby – it was a wonderful experience. Would have had more if I could have.


  • Too much information.


  • My strongest memory of labour is that it was exhausting.

    • I second this comment and agree — absolutely exhausting,


  • Some women handle labour very differently to others.


  • Everyone experiences birth differently. My birth experiences were memorable, but not for this reason.


  • Hm. Seems a Bit strange, but every body works differently.
