I had used the Bradley Method and found that it left me with a profound fear of hospital birth and intervention and taught that birth is excrutiatingly painful. I wanted her to get to the business of explaining the hypnobirthing process without all the bullshit.
Since I teach Bradley, I was comparing the two as I read this. I was not tense during my 1st pregnancy and I am not tense for my second.

In other words, we will help you prepare for the birth your plan and want for yourselves and your baby, rather than the birth that someone else directs.
You really need to work with a partner and make sure that they know how to help you to find your deep relaxation if you lose your concentration.
There is very little actual practical help on self-hypnosis as a method of hypnobirthimg and pain control in this book.

But I think most women’s labor will amount to some kind of pain and discomfort. There exits a preponderance of strong, well informed research to support the effectiveness of relaxation and diminished stress hormones during life altering events.
But nothing the author writes in the book proves to me that it is self-hypnosis that makes it so no-one asked those “poor” women, or those “African” women or all the mammals in the world how, or whether, they did it pain-free, after all.
I chose to have my daughter in the hospital with a doula to help me, and it was very natural, very peaceful; a beautiful experience.

Let’s be grown ups: Perhaps if I had taken a series of the classes, I would have liked the techniques and it would have proven worthwhile. And I do believe that there is a body-mind connection that is lost on a lot hypnobirthijg non-athletes.
But to claim that pain during labor is a social construct that you can just visualize away The material on nutrition, exercise, breastfeeding, and positions in labor seems solid enough, and I do believe that the hypnosis techniques can reduce pain in labor. Turns out – they messed it all up bad.
Some studies indicate that hypnosis can cut down on pain and complications and possibly even shorten labor As a result of the amazing impact this book and programme had on my daughter’s birth gas and air, not particularly painfulin fact, just today I started a course to teach HB.
