This happened to me 22 years ago when I was in labour with my son. It got to the point where it was too late for pain relief so I was not under the influence of medication. The pain was intense and I must have ‘blacked out’.
Next thing I am up on the ceiling corner, looking down at myself and my body, my husband and two midwives. When I ‘returned’ to my body, my husband said he was worried because at that time I did not respond to anyone and my eyes rolled back which was creepy. I must have ‘lost’ about a couple of seconds.
It’s only happened once and it was very real indeed. I can still remember it vividly. It sounds surreal but wondered if anyone else has had this type of experience? -Ange
