Is it possible to "self teach" yourself hypnobirthing? I would love to learn about it, but unfortunately the classes that the hosp. offers are pretty pricey and not something I can afford right now. I wondered if there's teaching video's and or websites in which I can benefit from?

Yes! I took classes, but I can certainly say you can teach it to yourself.

You will need to buy the hypnobirthing book which comes with one CD (basic relaxation)
Then there is another CD you can order from www.hypnobirthing.com called Rainbow Relaxation.

I book does an excellent job at explaining everything and why it works. Practice is the key. You will get to the point where getting to a deep state of relaxation it easy. There are breathing exercises, visualizations, scripts and then the CD's. All very easy to follow.

The one nice thing about the classes was that you had to learn to relax in a environment that wasn't your's. It wasn't like being at your own house and having to relax. So that was a good benefit, but you can try to practice different places.

I hope you get a chance to try it out either way!

This is my first baby, so I am a newbie at all of it.

We don't have classes for any type of hypnosis for childbirth here, so I am doing the Hypnobabies home study. I love it!! You can find out more at hypnobabies.com

I started with Hypnobirthing by Marie Mongan. She has a book that I got from amazon - It comes with a CD. It was a good way to try out hypnosis to see if it was something I would like since the book+CD was about $12. I was so interested in the book I read it in about 2 days. HOWEVER, it is not designed for a home study, so you will need more to get an effective grasp on hypnosis. The book refers to things you would learn in class, and you need to purchase other CDs from hypnobirthing.com to go with it. Even with all the CDs, I don't think it would prepare you enough since it is meant to have a class to fill in the gaps.

I then found hypnobabies, which DOES have a home study that is very complete. It has a huge binder of reading material and 6 CDs for a 5 week home study. It is $139, I think, but I have seen it on ebay for around $100-$110. I am just starting week 3. I actually like the relaxation/hypnosis CDs better than hypnobirthing. The hypnobirthing scripts had some things in them that my mind had trouble working with... a couple of things I had to reword in my mind to keep the hypnosis working for me. I find the hypnobabies scripts to be more practical and more open for me to fill in the details. There is also a hypnobabies yahoo group you can join whether you are doing hypnobabies or not, so be sure to check that out. I think if you click on 'Current Students' at hypnobabies.com you'll find a link to join the group.
