I posted this in the Birth Stories Forum:


One note is that I did use Hypnobabies, but I was not at all the ideal HB student.  With my first birth whenever I noticed that someone used hypnosis I didn't even bother reading the story because it seemed kind of kooky, and besides it wasn't applicable to me because I wasn't doing that.  Well, that first birth taught me that I do NOT know how to relax.  I used hypnobabies more as a structured method to learn relaxation techniques than as an actual hypnosis program.  I don't know if I was ever hypnotized, and I wouldn't say my birth was pain free.  But I was very relaxed and confident.  This birth is night and day different from my first one.  Is it all due to Hypnobabies, no.  But I think it did help.
