Hi,<br><br>
I am six weeks pregnant with my second child. It's been nine years since I was pregnant with my first, so as you can imagine, I'm a little rusty!<br><br>
I've been reading about all the birth hypnosis programs, and I am fascinated! Trouble is, I don't know which to choose. The three I've been reading about are:<br><br>
Hypbirth<br>
Hypnobirthing<br>
Hypnobabies<br><br>
I was wondering if anyone has any experience to share. I've not seen ANYTHING written (on boards) about Hypbirth, and judging from the website, it sounds fabulous. Then again, everything sounds fabulous on its own website!<br><br>
Money is very tight, so I probably won't be taking a formal class. I liked that Hypnobabies and Hypbirth both have homestudy options, but I seem to remember reading that some women have used Hypnobirthing without a class.<br><br>
Incidentally, I trained to be a Bradley instructor many moons ago, but never actually taught. Somewhere down the line it dawned on me that, although I think it's probably a very good program for some, it wasn't really all that helpful in my own very difficult birth. I think I had an unmedicated birth in spite of it, rather than because of it, KWIM? Anyway, I'm glad to have the materials and knowledge going into this birth, but I want something more.<br><br>
Thanks in advance for any insight.<br><br>

I'm also curious as to whether the hypnosis was difficult to maintain while moving about in labor. Thanks again.<br><br>

I am using the hypnobabies home study course. I chose it because of the awesome support. (I think Kerry is even on these boards sometimes.) There is a yahoo group where she or others will answer your questions and she provides a lot of supplemental scripts too.<br><br>
When I was looking into it the common comment about hypnobirthing was that it was not enough, and a lot of people turned to hypnobabies to add to it. Hypbirthing is new to me. I did look at their website the other day, but I have not heard anything from anyone who has tried it.<br><br>
So far I have listened to only two scripts, but I love how it makes me feel so relaxed and then when it's done...bing right back feeling normal and energized. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
If you do a search here on hypnobirhting and hypnobabies you should come up with a lot. I have seen a lot of discussions from people who have used them with their births.<br><br>
Good luck <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
