Why I love Hypnobabies

During my fifth pregnancy I used the Hypnobabies self study course. I had two deliveries with epidurals and two unmedicated births  I knew I could deliver without pain medication again.  I also knew that birth hurts! I was a skeptic, but after seeing several comfortable births due to the Hypnobabies program I decided to give it a try.  It became a common occurrence for a fist time mother to show up in labor and delivery to check to see if she was in labor, and be dilated to 7 or 8 centimeters.  That really sealed the deal for me!  If a first time mom could be so comfortable I knew it could work for me.  My birth was beautiful and comfortable. I had to be induced and was worried the selfhypnosis would be more difficult to attain, but I was comfortable, laughing and happy throughout the labor process.  I recommend the program to my sisters and friends and they loved it too.  I will use it again if baby number six comes along.
