    Hello ladies,

    Just read the post about being terrified about birth and really thought I should pass on the info about a book I've just read called 'hypnobirthing; The Mongan Method'.

    I was properly panicking about the prospect of labour but I've read this book and although I don't agree with all of it or think I will be able to do all of the techniques, it's really helped with just putting the whole thing into perspective and removing my fear of giving birth. I can now honestly say I am (almost!) looking forward to it! :wacko:

    I am sure there are mums on here who will have tried it and found it works for them (or not), but either way, if it helps you reframe the idea of the whole thing and view it as something ppotentially positive, it can't be a bad thing! :thumbup:

    I've got the CD but like you, classes are just too expensive but so wish I could do them. But it's done wonders for just helping me relax about the whole thing. not sure if I will be able to put any of it into practice though but gonna give it my best shot!

    Im so excited to start classes next tuesday! I havent heard one bad thing about hypnobirthing, learning relaxation techniques is helpful for everyday life also! The fact is the more relaxed you are the less pain is felt! When I feel scared I just focus on that!
