Questions! I am trying to sign up for a hypnobirthing class that starts march 29th but I am waiting for my tax return to do so.. (it is taking a VERY long time cause we filed the old fashioned send it in way)<br><br>
I am getting worried that I wont be able to get in, not to mention I have absolutly NOONE to watch my girls durring the class.<br><br>
the next class starts in may.<br><br>
My midwife suggested taking the earlier class so I could have more time to practice.<br><br>
What I want to know is did anyone do it at home on their own?? what books CDs, dvds did you get? I might end up having to do it that way if I cant get a sitter or my tax return in time.<br><br>
I really feel like the class is my best bet but I am wondering if anyone was successful doing it on their own and how you did it and what you used.<br><br>
I keep having nightmares that I go into labor and I was never able to get a hypnobirthing class or study up on it at all, and I can't handle the pain and I end up going to the hospital for an epidural and I fail at breastfeeding again cause of it.... so I am getting worried and want to find a solution.

I had a really successful birth using Hypnobirthing this past Jan. I only used the book which came with a CD. I read it cover to cover as did my Mom (who was present with dh during the birth). I did the relaxation CD a dozen times and then wrote my own version of the "rainbow relaxation" which is explained in the book. I started at 36wks. One afternoon I sat with Dh and went through the book with him and we practiced together.<br><br>
It was my second birth and I was highly motivated by my first birth experience to go unmedicated so that helped. The only thing I did differently was that I didnt' "breathe" the baby out as the book suggested. I pushed. I wanted to push and it worked for me.

The Hypnobabies home study might be a good option for you:<br><br><a href="http://www.hypnobabies.com" target="_blank">http://www.hypnobabies.com</a><br><br>
I'm experienced with both HypnoBirthing and Hypnobabies and I've found the Hypnobabies course (live or home study) to be more effective and comprehensive than the live HypnoBirthing class. If you choose the Hypnobabies home study option you'd have access to an instructor if you have any questions and you could also request a used course for around $85 by calling 714 952-2229. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Some women do have nice births simply using the HypnoBirthing book and the CD that comes with it, which is nice. The book/CD isn't set up as a home study option, though. In my experience, more women have more comfortable births when they have the structure and guidance of a full program. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I love hypnosis for birth! I've used it three times and will be using it again (Hypnobabies) for this one, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I am already reading up on the hypnobabies homestudy.. that actually sounds perfect for us.. we could do our 5 courses at home after the girls are asleep and practice every night after they are sleeping.<br><br>
hmmmmm this is an idea.

the fact is that the only option I have to do with the girls even if we do get our taxes in time, is the next door neibors, who are nice but the whole family lives there (grandmother aunts uncles ect) the grandmother is sweet but her english is difficult to understand, My oldest is friends with the little girl who lives there so she loves going over, but my youngest is afraid of the grandmother and the uncle.. just cause she is a shy timid girl and she doesn't feel comfertable being left with anyone other than grandparents and her uncle or aunt.<br><br>
so I really really really am not comfertable with doing that to her.
