Description

HypnoBirthing has gained momentum around the globe as a positive and empowering method of childbirth. Here's why: HypnoBirthing helps women to become empowered by developing an awareness of the instinctive birthing capability of their bodies. It greatly reduces the pain of labor and childbirth; frequently eliminates the need for drugs; reduces the need for caesarian surgery or other doctor-controlled birth interventions; and it also shortens birthing and recovery time, allowing for better and earlier bonding with the baby, which has been proven to be vital to the mother-child bond. What's more, parents report their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven't experienced birth trauma.    

HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience. In this audiobook, she shows women how the Mongan Method works and how parents can take control of the greatest and most important event of their lives.   

So, why is birth such a traumatic event for so many women? And why do more than 40 percent of births now end in caesarian section, the highest percentage in history? The answer is simple: because our culture teaches women to fear birth as a painful and unsettling experience. Fear causes three physical reactions in the body - tightening of the muscles, reduced blood flow to the birthing muscles, and the release of certain hormones - which increase the pain and discomfort of childbirth. This is not hocus-pocus - this is science.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Only good if your taking a physical course

I ended up returning this audio book. She went over a few meditations but the amount of times she would say, "you'll learn more about this in your hypnobirthing class." Not much help to someone who is not taking a class and instead is just wanting to gain the knowledge from various books. Did enjoy learning about the history of hypnosis though.

Disappointed in the structure of the book

I had such high hopes for this book. I am currently in my third trimester and have been actively seeking hypnobirthing education since mid-second trimester. Unfortunately, I live in an area where there are no current hypnobirthing educators or classes. I hoped to glean as much information from this book as I possibly could, but instead found that the book spends a disproportionate amount of time trying to sell you on the idea of hypnobirthing, instead of giving information to put this philosophy into action.As some other reviewers have said, I already bought the book. I'm already sold on the idea.There's no need to spend at least a quarter of the book trying to sell me on it.

I was also disappointed to find that with the few actual techniques the book did share, they gave only an abbreviated overview and indicated hypnobirthing educators and classes will fill in the specifics. As I mentioned before, I have no immediate access to an educator in my area, which renders much of this book useless to me.

My advice for any prospective readers: make sure you are taking a hypnobirthing class in conjunction with reading this book or at the very least, you have access to a hypnobirthing educator in your area. If neither of the aforementioned options apply to you, I would unfortunately recommend skipping this book.

Gave up after 7 chapters of no useful information

It was all storytelling and trying to sell a particular philosophy with no actual useful advice given. Maybe I would have gotten to it eventually, but I was starting to get way too annoyed with the author.

Good concept, slow reader

wife is super into doing this for our birth. I hope it works out. The reader reads very slow on this, so I recommend playing it at 1.1x speed. It does NOT sound sped up at this speed.

No actual information

The whole book she is trying to sell you on the idea with giving no information on techniques. I’m 38 weeks and wasted 3 days on getting through most of the book. Got through chapter 12, I believe. Definitely sells you on the idea but left you hanging on the execution.

good for info on the practice

I'm a little frustrated with this audible book. It's got lots of good info on hypnobirthing but no real way to help me DO the practice! When you buy the physical book, you get a CD with meditations on it. That's what I need. This cost the same and no meditations! Plus I can't see a table of contents and none of the chapters are labeled so I have no idea what's next or where anything in the book is. I love hypnobirthing but am very disappointed in this Audible book. At least give me the rainbow meditation!

Great in labor!

I loved this book. I practiced hypnobirthing during my 30 hour VBA3C and it was incredibly helpful. Using the breathing techniques I was able to labor at home to 7cm without any pain and even in the hospital the breathing techniques helped me tremendously!

Very well structured and a must read for any expecting parent

I liked this book, well structured and has nice and effective tools. Also a good way to bind with your partner.
Most of it is common sense, some part could have been made shorter, but overall good

WORST AUDIO BOOK I HAVE EVER BOUGHT!

I bought this book so I could learn about hypnobirthing, not listen to this woman’s biography. I am on chapter 4 and I feel like I’ve been held hostage listening to this woman talk about her fing career journey. NO ONE CARES! GET OVER YOURSELF! PEOPLE ARE BUYING THIS BOOK TO LEARN ABOUT HYPNOBIRTHING NOT YOU!!!!

Great book! A lot of helpful information

Great resource for parents, especially first timers :) We have this on paperback, but the audio version allowed my husband to follow along with me. It has been a huge eye opener for him.
