This will be my third time using hypnobabies. The first time I never completed the course and never really got into it. My second birth I did the work religiously (I even did each week for 2 weeks, starting earlier in my pregnancy) but still didn't use the actual techniques in active labor. I listened when things were still mild enough to lay down but once labor was rockin' and rollin' I just followed my instincts. I loved the course though because it was soooo relaxing and affirming in pregnancy.
I was suppose to (by my own deadline) begin the course this week (30 weeks) but it's so much harder this time with a cosleeping toddler. He really interrupts my ability to relax or concentrate on the scripts.
I'm not reading the booklet this time. It drove me insane last time
with all the underlining and bolding and capitaliazation and SPELLING ERRORS!!!!!!
I wish someone would edit and republish the booklet because it needs some help
