This review is from: Effective Birth Preparation (Hospital or Birth Centre): A Self Hypnosis CD Programme (Natal Hypnotherapy Programme) (Audio CD)
This series of CDs is the most wonderful and effective preparation for a pain free, positive childbirth experience. I speak from experience as I have now had two children; one is hospital with the full horrors of modern medicine for a routine, healthy pregnancy: when I ended up having an epidural and ventouse delivery, and a second birth at home: using this series of CDs to prepare which resulted in an excellent, pain free home birth (nobody believes this but I swear it's true!) without medication and only using the TENS machine for what turned out to be the transition stage.
My older child (a boy aged 2 and a half) witnessed his sister's birth and it was amazing for us all as I was so calm and peaceful he was not in the least bit frightened and was a great help during the labour and birth (holding my hand during contractions etc!).
If only all women knew that it could be so wonderful! I implore every woman with even a vaguely open mind to listen to these CDs ALOT and give themselves the opportunity of a truly wonderful, peaceful birth.
(NB: I read alot to prepare too; I rate Ina May Gaskin's Childbirth book and the Grantley Dick-Dead classic Childbirth Without Fear.)
