Interesting and some useful ideas but didn't play a massive part in the birth of my daughter,
This review is from: Effective Birth Preparation: Your Practical Guide to a Better Birth (Kindle Edition)
I had always wanted as natural a birth as possible and this book was recommended to me by a friend. I read through it and did some of the exercises and wrote down my 'triggers' etc. This process was very useful for focussing my mind on the labour/birth and on staying calm. When it came to the actual birth it didn't really play a part as things progressed too quickly to put anything into effect. Despite that, I would still recommend it as the time spent considering everything was very helpful.
The only criticism I would have is that the first five or so chapters (I.e. setting the scene for the benefits of natal hypnotherapy) were longer than they needed to be as they were a bit repetitive.
One thing to note with the kindle version: I found the experiences from mothers, partners and medical personnel interesting but it did break up the text a little - I found myself having to go back and remind myself what I was reading beforehand.
