Hello everyone!

I was thinking of ordering the Hypnobabies Self Study this weekend and was wondering what you think? (Link here: http://www.hypnobabies.com/mylink.php?id=3812)

I guess I am starting it a bit late but that's because I couldn't make up my mind on what I wanted to do! It's a little pricey... is there anything else I can get (preferably audiobooks) that isn't so expense?

I don't know the difference, but I have started reading the Hypnobirthing book (the Mongan Method) and it comes with a CD. My dh and I plan to start the breathing/relaxation techniques this week. Talk about late - I'm 32 weeks LOL! I like the book, though...

Good luck! I'll be watching to see what others say about Hypnobabies. I decided not to spend the $$ on it becuase I hired a doula and am taking a class called Birth Works, so I figured that I've spent enough LOL!

I've been hanging around the cloth diaper board, but it's about time I venture out :-)

Dh and I did HypnoBirthing (our first baby was born in Nov) and LOVED it! We didn't do the self study though, we took a class and it was great. I don't know anything about the self study but I was really happy with HypnoBirthing in general (we used the Marie Mongan book). I think it would be possible to learn a lot of helpful stuff from a self-study type thing but it might be easier in a class setting when you can hear someone else read the various scripts and visualizations. However, if it isn't possible for you to take a class then I think this self study would be the next best thing. Good luck!

I'm also reading the Hypnobirthing book right now. So far I am loving it. I haven't yet pulled out the CD, but plan on doing that this week. I have never studied the hypnobabies though, so I am not sure of all the differences, or which one is better. I guess that would be a personal decision. Good luck though...

Thanks to Vicki for my gorgeous siggy!

I took a HypnoBirthing class and then ordered the Hypobabies homestudy at 35 weeks!! Totally worth it! I loved using Hypnosis and used it a lot during my marathon labor. HypnoBirthing was great but it's a lot more "condensed" than Hypnobabies. It only includes 4 scripts and 1 or 2 of those is pregnancy affirmations. Hypnobabies has numerous scripts which I really liked. I was able to choose whichever script I thought was most appropriate. I give hypnosis a lot of credit for my natural birth.

I did hypnobirthing (took a class) and it worked great for me. But, like RubyTuesday said, it is a lot more condensed than hypnobabies. Hypnobirthing doesn't focus as much on actual hypnosis like hypnobabies does, it's more of a deep relaxation.
