I can't speak from experience about Hypnobabies, other than I have a few friends who loved it, and a few who said it didn't work for them. I think it *definitely* depends on your personality!!

We did Bradley with our second baby and LOVED it! My hubby, who thought he already knew it all, was blown away with how much he learned! I have seen several couples come out of the classes and the dad is just so confident! it's awesome! One of my favorite aspects of Bradley is that they teach you multiple different relaxation techniques, so you are not limited to just one, and can choose what works best for YOU when the time comes, or even change it up for the different stages of labor. I kind of feel like Bradley includes a little bit of the Hypnobabies concepts in their visualization and "sensory recall" relaxation techniques. It's not hypnosis, but it is deep relaxation of the mind.
anyway, hope that helps.
