Anyone doing Hypnobabies? - Page 2

post #21 of 47
I received the Hypnobabies course in the mail a couple days ago. There is a lot to it. I'm glad that I got it early so I can get started.

Ola, you might be able to purchase the book by itself via the hypnobabies company. It can't hurt to ask and see if they sell it.

I am also looking at the hypnobabies program. There's a Hypno-doula in town who teaches a Hypnobabies class and I was thinking about doing that. Have any of you taken the class? Was it worth the extra money? I have already had two easy homebirths so I think the class might be overkill for me, but just wonder if any of you have done it?

I just ran across a website that had a FAQ section that covers that, Ola. Near the bottom of that page is the number to call the Hypnobabies main office to order a workbook by itself.

Although I didn't do hypnobabies I LOVE meditation for infertility, pregnancy, and birth. I just noticed hypnobabies has 2 cds just for twin pregnancies! I might have to get those (luckily they are sold separately!)

Wanted to pop in and mention that Hypnobabies is offering 20% off everything in their store except MP3s. You can get a code on either their Facebook page or Yahoo group (or PM me and I'll get one to you).

Do you know if this is still going on?

It ended Nov. 5th. They usually have one every season (fall, winter, spring, summer), but sometimes they skip one. If you subscribe to the Yahoo or Facebook groups you can be updated when they do have another sale.

After a lot of asking around, I found a friend who has the home study and is willing to lend it to me! I'm so excited! So I guess now I'm doing hypnobabies too. 

 

I have NO experience with hypnosis...I'm a little tentative, but I'm willing to throw myself into this. So I really really hope it pays off.

I used the Hypnobirthing method by Marie Mongan - the book was OK but the CD's were the best. I loved, loved the concept of hypnobirth and it definitely worked for me. I had the smoothest pregnancy and a fairly smooth delivery, despite being a week late and being induced (blah) - I had determined I didn't want to be in labor for more than ten hours... I was admitted to the hospital at noon, no contractions until 5pm, and my DD was born at 10:03 on the nose! It was kind of amazing. And I'm a total skeptic generally. I am going to look into Hypnobabies, at least for some MP3's to play on my laptop at night... totally worth it. Anything that gets you meditating on the positive is great in my book, especially when pregnant!

Yesterday I had a session with a hypnotist and it was awesome! I had won a free session with her back in the spring (she does labor hypnosis and also EFT) and just got around to cashing it in. She was trained using the same program as Kerry (Hypnobabies founder) so she isn't an official Hypnobabies teacher, but she teaches pretty much the same techniques and uses the same terminology. The session was so relaxing and I felt like it was better than just listening to the CDs because I could give her feedback and tell her about specific things I wanted to focus on during the relaxation/hypnosis session. She told me I'm welcome to come to any of her hypnosis for birth classes during the rest of my pregnancy, free of charge. I'm definitely planning to take her up on that!

i've been fortunate to find a hypnobabies instructor here in NYC who does group classes and DP and I will be starting next weekend carrot.gif

DP is actually less than thrilled and thinks its all a bunch of nonsense, but hopefully after being in a group setting with a bunch of other men who may be able to commiserate with him and help him gain a better understanding of what hynobabies actually is.. he'll be more on board.

im uber excited about getting started though! it ain't cheap ($400 including materials).. but im sure it'll be worth it

 

i would've done the homestudy course, but i like the idea of DP being really really involved and doing this with me. i know if i just hand him the book and a few cds, it'll wind up under the stack of all the other things he has to do!

Do any of you know whether there is an active Yahoo group for Hypnobabies now?

There was one which I loved being part of during my last pregnancy. So many inspiring birth stories and empowered mamas! I tried searching but couldn't find it - I am not very used to the Yahoo groups, though...

 

How is everyone getting on with their hypno preparations? I have not really followed my plan up until now, so I need to start!!!

post #34 of 47


About a week ago I finally got the MP3s loaded onto my ipod and have been listening at night before I fall asleep.  I need to find the book and skim through it again, but last time the book wasn't anywhere near as helpful as the MP3s.

 

I wanted to

The Hypnobabies Yahoo group is still around and very active! Here's the link: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Hypnobabies/

I started my home study course at 20 weeks and have been fairly good at keeping up with it. This week is my last week in maintenance before I go back through the Lessons one more time and restart maintenance at 38 weeks.
post #36 of 47

I finally found a copy and started last week. Yes, I know it's a little late to start, but I'm hoping it won't matter. I really love the program so far. I find it amazing that I'm out a few minutes into listening and start to wake up when she's counting. I think my husband thinks I'm nuts :)

I'm having a hard time with the Hypnobabies CDs. I love love love the affirmations and I listen to them every day, but when I try to listen to listen to the hypnosis tracks, I end up having to stop because my restless leg syndrome goes crazy. During the day I move around a lot and it's fine but every time I try to relax it's so bad I want to cry. I've tried the first two tracks twice each and I've never been able to make it all the way through the track. I feel like I'm running out of time (I'm about 31 weeks) and I'm worried that I won't be able to get enough practice in to be of much use during labor.

 

Anybody else had trouble with getting jittery or itchy or not being able to finish the tracks for some reason?

post #38 of 47

I have all my stuff and haven't even started.  boo. I suck.  My doula soes hypno and I am doing her program.  We will do a private hypno session or 2 prior to delivery and she will be there so I guess I am counting on that.  Plus I did all the cd's and stuff twice (okay-so it was 6 and 7 years ago!) but I'm hoping its all stored in there and comes back to me easily!

minkajane - I wish I could help. Have you tried asking in Birth and Beyond? There will be more people who can help there. I just joined the yahoo group, but I'm waiting on approval. Are there any positions that work best for your legs?

post #40 of 47

I'm going to try doing it at a time other than bedtime. Since my legs are worse in the evenings, that may help. As soon as DH gets up today, he's taking DS so I can have some quiet time.
