  • I did calmbirth which was amazing

  • I tried hypnobirthing for my second baby. This followed a really traumatic first birth, and to be honest, I was terrified of giving birth again. Hynobirthing really helped me, and although my husband at the time was fairly sceptical he was actually relieved to have been given some phrases which would put me back into focus and help me stick to my plan. Of course, all births are individual and I did get to the stage where I wanted an epidural – but it was too late by then and I had my baby. I found it was a positive and healing experience, and I enjoyed endorphins after the the birth, which I didn’t get after my first birth. Look into it for sure, it definitely can’t hurt. Just remember that births are individual and babies don’t always follow our plans. Best of luck x

  • Thank you all. Its my second and I wanted to try something to better manage pain, now I know what to expect. I have signed up to online classes starting Monday.

  • I think giving birth is something you can’t have a solid plan for, so many variables and possible problems, which is why I chose hospital as my only birthing option

  • I’ve tried hypnotherapy (not hypobirthing), and I’m afraid it wasn’t successful for me. So I didn’t even consider it for birth.

  • I have not tried it but interested to read about experiences and answers.

  • I read the hypnobiryhing boook, I think there were some great ideas and I had 2 short easy labour’s. Birth skills is also a great read, by juju sundim

  • No experience but I’d also love to hear stories!

  • I never heard about it…maybe ask your midwife and if its available at your hospital

  • Sorry I’ve no experience, but you may be interested to read some of these testimonials.
