    Subscribing!

    I'm also wanting to go down the Calm Birth/Hypnobabies path. My naturopath does Calm Birth courses but I don't really know the difference between the two? Are they roughly the same deal?

    I didn't do a course but I did read up on hypnobirthing when I had DD. From what I could gather just play any music that gets you in the zone. I had lovely classical music as that worked for me. I had music like this playing

    It really did work a treat.

    I did a hypnobirthing course before DS and am so glad I did!
    its a lot about trusting your body and baby to do what is required, about using positioning as a way of minimizing pain and about using meditation and mindfulness.

    It was exactly what I needed. The course provided me with a CD and book. The cd I loaded onto my iPod and listened to the medications and affirmations during my yoga sessions and when I was going to sleep.

    Reading this, I sound like a right hippy!

    Hypno birthing didn't work for me. I just used some audio files from the internet. I was induced and my labour came on quickly with contractions one minute apart about 30 minutes into my labour so I had no time to get into the zone.

    I'd recommend doing a class as the CD's alone did bugger all for me!

    I did the course and got the book/CD's - did nothing for me during labour either! It helped prepare me mentally beforehand though so still worth it I guess.

    But I was forced to lie on one side with a fetal monitor attached, which made getting in the zone or trying the different positions practiced non-existent. All the training went out the window sadly!

    Hopefully I can put in to place more this time around, if my labour is a little more normal.

    I used the Mongan Hypnobirthing book and CD. I found they were good. I also used some relaxation MP3s from a friend. It had an Australian man talking. I'm not sure of who published those ones. I'll try and find out for you because they were very good too.
