I loved this and used it for both of my natural births. I just played it whenever I was going for a rest and I've never actually listened to what it says but it surely had sunk into my subconcious. At best it will leave you confident, relaxed and prepared once those initial feelings of labour begin. At worst you will get a lovely CD to relax and unwind to which is so important for both mother and baby. A lovely CD to bond with baby and enjoy pregnancy. I have given it to many of my friends and they have all gained something from it.
