I have recently bought the Hypnobirthing book which comes with a relaxation CD (The Morgan Method), but it does mention throughout the book about 'practising these techniques with your practitioner in your classes' quite a lot.
Has anyone successfully used some Hypnobirthing techniques without attending classes? In our area the classes are roughly £295 and its an added expense we could do without if possible!
I really believe that the human body was designed to birth naturally and that we can cope if we stay in a relaxed positive frame of mind, but as I am planning a home water birth, I am a little worried about not knowing what Im doing if Ive just read the book and practised myself without a tutor?
i read the book and had a cd, didnt go to classes and still found the techniques very usefull and practiced them during labour. the only thing i didnt do was breath the baby out, my body took over and i pushed for my life ha ha, but otherwise it was brilliant.
I read the book and CD at 35 weeks and went on to have an amazing birth. I have since trained as a practitioner and would recommend that you do the classes as there is so much to be gained from the personal interaction with a practitioner, it is well worth the money.
