I listened to the cd that came along with the book and really had a hard time relaxing to it while practicing, but hypnobirthinv labor it worked surprisingly well. Otherwise, there wasn’t really anything that would support some of the claims that Mongan makes in the book. People who like to pretend that childbirth is a piece of cake.
The one that posits that if you have cancer or were born in a war-torn fourth world country, it’s because your thoughts attracted it, while conversely the rich and healthy deserve it because they thought positive?

Why is it that no one would ever run a marathon if they hadn’t been training both mentally and physically but we t This another book that I feel every pregnant woman should read, even if she isn’t planning on using hypnosis or even having a hypnobirthibg birth.
While I agree with Mongan’s premise on an intellectual and intuitive level, I felt the book lacked in specifics. I no longer believe that to be true. So don’t give me this BS no pun intended about animals doin’ it “naturally.

This book pissed me off when it came to describing moms of breech babies. There are two misconceptions I notice in a lot of the reviews of this book. So you go into childbirth expecting all this new wave awesomeness and your body tenses up, a lot, and you start to stress because it kind of hurts and that’s your fault and you must be doing something wrong.
I feel like I am being insulted at every turn in this book. I also found unrealistic the idea that enough preparation can make a birth free of discomfort. What bothers me most, is that there is PLENTY of evidence that suggests that when a person’s cortisol, GH and norepinephrine hormone loads are low, individuals experience less pain. I chose to have my daughter in the hospital with a doula to help me, and it was very natural, very peaceful; a beautiful experience.

The authors would like for you to believe otherwise. I ended up listening to the accompanying CD often, although I always fell asleep after the first 5 minutes.
Basically they blame the mom for being tense and that’s why the baby is breech. In the brief paragraphs that touch on the different visualization techniques, they are vaguely described and poorly explained. In fact, much of the information in here contradicted points I’ve read in the Bradley book, Active Birth yhpnobirthing, or other sources, which left me frustrated and confused about which advice to follow.
