The home study is a great option if you can't do a live Hypnobabies class. Here's a chart on when to start:

I chose to listen to Affirmations for Pregnancy, Special Place, and Easy Comfortable Childbirth a few times a week. At around 28 weeks (when I could commit to daily practice) is when I chose to do the rest of the program as written.

I did think the self-hypnosis would be of some help for whatever the level of pain, but was pretty disappointed with that. Guess I'll start earlier next time.
I'm sorry you were disappointed. That couldn't have been pleasant! Yes, I would encourage you to start sooner rather than later and you might want to look into a more comprehensive hypnosis program such as Hypnobabies if you do choose to give hypnosis another go.

I listened to whatever I felt like. I listened to the Birth Guide CD a few times, Deepening, Birthing Day Affirmations, a playlist of music I like (Cat Stevens, Beatles, etc.), Special Place, etc. With my last baby, Birthing Day Affirmations was my favorite. With the baby before that, I really liked the Birth Guide CD. Sometimes I didn't listen to anything and just used my lightswitch and other cues. The important thing is to remember to use your tools.

I used Monagan method. I read the book but did some private sessions all in the last month or so of my pregnancy. I worked great for me. i passed the book onto a friend with her 5th baby and she oNLy read the book and said it was very effective. she was great till people at the hospital started making a loud fuss and broke her concentration. With a little more practice she probably could have regained it.

I will re read the book and since the morning sickness is making sleeping uncomfortable i think i will start listening to the CD's now in early pregnancy. I think the CD's are still on my MP3 player which is nice. i would say you cant be too early! more practice the better.
