    Default Hypnobirthing / Calm Birth - Adelaide

    Hi All,

    Can anyone suggest:
    1) Books to read on hypnobirthing / calm birth techniques
    2) Courses in Adelaide on hypnobirthing/ calm birthing techniques

    There are a few providers in Adelaide and I wanted to see if anyone can give me some feedback - given how expensive they are I wanted some recommendations rather than just my random selection.

    Thank you.

    Not sure about Adelaide, but I did the calm birth course in Sydney and it's the best money I have ever spent. One of the pre-reads for the course was a book called Active Birth, which was really helpful, but you do have to put in the time & practice the relaxation techniques from the course quite regularly for it to become almost second nature. I had a completely drug free water birth & got to the hospital after laboring at home for 7 hours when I was 9cm dilated. it was an amazing experience.

    I'm also in Adelaide and a really good resource is 'the birth place' on glen osmond rd, they have heaps of books that they will lend out on all that sort of stuff and also run some classes. It is run by homebirthers but they welcome everyone, just look past the 'hippy' appearance because they really are helpful people when talking all the options and the classes are run by different providers, many who rent the space because of the resources
    both my boys were hospital births but i still go to the occasional coffee morning (held monthly) and feel more than welcome
