Hi Mandy,

I'm about 6 weeks away from popping (with number 2) and am quite interested in hypnobirthing...has anyone used it? If so can you recommend a dvd/cd? Is it too late to do it??  I'm hopefully having a home waterbirth anyway...

many thanks xxx

Hi Sharon,

First of all, congratulations on choosing a home water birth! Water birth is always such a pleasure to behold and is often calm and more comfortable than dry land!
Hypnobirthing is also wonderful when used alongside the comfort that water brings. Ideally it needs to be taught over 4-5 sessions by a qualified teacher in the comfort of your own home but you can also grab the book and try to learn the techniques yourselves if you have patience and time...
If you would like to learn a little more, have a look at our website www.dcim.co.uk where Nicky explains a little more about hypnobirthing or visit the Hypnobirthing UK website.

Natalhypnotherapy as an alternative can be learned through a collection of CD's which can be purchased from Amazon or from the Natal Hypnotherapy website.  

As the techniques can take a little time to learn, we often recommend that women start the learning process by the time they are 34-36 weeks or before if possible but some women have contacted us within a week or so of birth and had a weekends intense course just in time for a wonderful birthing!

I have now seen several 'hypno births' and have found them calming and positive as have the women who have experienced them! They have often commented on how 'in control' they felt and how 'connected' they felt with the process of birth. They have all commented on the amazing 'pain relieving'  qualities that the deep relaxation of this therapy gives. 'Pain' is a very subjective word however and not one that is used in Hypnobirthing but it is difficult to explain different peoples perception of pain! Positive language is always used in Hypnobirthing and aids the entire experience.

Again, if you have any further questions please have a look at our website or the hypnobirthing UK site. Or throw some more questions at me! Happy to help!

Take care, happy birthing!
Mandy x    
   Very Happy

women using hypnosis are much calmer and more relaxed during labor, which automatically creates more comfort, as well as having *powerful* post-hypnotic suggestions to actually eliminate pain and fear. How effective is this? Statistics will vary by the program and method chosen, depending on the length and number of hypnosis sessions, the materials used in each, and the skill of the hypnotherapist or teacher, as well as the dedication and compliance to the program of each birthing couple. Ideally, hypnosis for childbirth instructors will have backgrounds in both hypnotherapy and childbirth education, and be able to address each woman’s personal needs. With adequate preparation and trust in the natural process of birth, most women can have much more relaxed and comfortable births, with many actually free of pain.

I, too, am on the fence about hypnobirthing.  It all sounds so natural, yet my charlotte pediatrician is SOOO against it.  How can I make a truly informed decision on this?
