Not bad as an introduction to and a history of hypnosis, although you can probably get all you need on this from general searches of the internet. Very short book that gives guidance on making your own hypnosis tapes, however the chances are you've got more important things on your plate at this time than doing this and would be better off with a ready made tape such as 'Transforming Childbirth' by Tina Taylor & Nick Kemp, at least until you've got into it enough to perhaps be confident enough to make your or else use your own choice of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! 6 Jan 2006
By New Mom - Published on
I highly recommend this book!! I researched many books and techniques and the ones that I learned in this book worked the best for me. It allowed me to have a natural childbirth, without drugs, of a 9lb, 5oz baby! I will admit that the labor was not "pain-free", but it was certainly very manageable. I have experienced much greater pain from back problems. The book is written in an easy to follow manner, with many excellent scripts to read during delivery. I especially liked the section that tests to see if you are a good candidate for hypnosis as well as identifying which techniques will work best for you. Great Great resource!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book for managing pain 12 Aug 2007
By Claire Toney - Published on
I bought this book hoping it would help with my delivery. It had some good tips on managing labor pain. However, the more I read, the more I felt that to use the tips, you have to have a good labor coach that believes in hypnosis as much as you do. My husband is a skeptic, so it was hard for me to use the tips, knowing that he didn't really "buy into" hypnosis. I used some of the tips for the first part of my labor but did not use any of them during hard labor. I would suggest this book to anyone interested, with the above caveat.

4.0 out of 5 stars pain free labor 20 Feb 2007
By icanoewenonah - Published on

I bought this for my daughter. She found it interesting & was able to use one thing from it for sure. Finding her "happy place" when in labor helped her get through some of the pain.

She ended up giving birth with not one single drug!
