A good introduction to hypnobirthing, though I'd recommend you skip the chapter on the history of birth (too many negative images!).
Not organized as a self-study course, still it contains enough information to begin your own study of hypnobirth. Best of all, it teaches you to create your own relaxation and affirmation tapes, which are key to the technique.
This book and this method are AMAZING. I cannot recommend it enough! I gave birth twice completely med-free and completely pain-free!
As far as I know this is the only book on the market that covers everything you need to know in order to use hypnobirthing during the labor and delivery of your baby.
There are very expensive classes to teach you how to do it. Reading this book is a crash course in the same information. So if you are curious about the method, reading this book is a good place to start...
I have seen women on "A Baby Story" give birth with hypnobirthing and it looked great. I ended up not using it, I just did a natural delivery without drugs and without special 'methods' for the birth of my second child (after reading many books on natural birth).
A good overview of using hypnosis during childbirth.
Book given as a resource reference for a future CNM. Will NOT be reposted or available to anyone else.
