My question is this: will I be able to practice without his help? Will the tapes be enough (assuming I've taken the class and have practiced with him before he leaves)?

Were the tapes enough?
The tapes were enough for me! I hated the Rainbow Relaxation tape at first, but I forced myself to listen, then I grew to like it. (But if they are NOT enough for you, look into HypnoBabies.com.)
I ignored the scripts in the book/class that didn't make any sense to me (like glove anesthesia ?) and just focused on what did work (the tapes.)
Towards the end of my pregnancy, I EXCUDED self-confidence and calm and everyone around me (pre-natal yoga teacher, other pg women) picked up on it. I could not believe it.
Months before, I was terrified of things "going wrong" at the birth (what if my Doula doesn't show up in time, what if I end up with an OB from hell because my OB doesn't show up on time...) but towards the end, I was feeling like I could give birth completely on my own, unassisted (wow !!!) in the middle of NYC's Grand Central Train Station.

The key is daily practice...not daily practice with your DH. Listening to the tapes every day before bed or at some point in your day, spells success.

Thanks so much for your replies! Did those of you that responded do the home study course or take the class? This is also something I've wondered: how do you stay relaxed (pain free or minimal pain) during pushing? Seems like that physical exertion would move you out of that deeply relaxed state. Thank you for your help!
