Why are couples in a low- or no-risk category being prepared for circumstances that only rarely occur? Her chapter on the ‘history’ of childbirth pain was more painful, I think, than giving birth could ever be. Published May 24th by Health Communications first published Mongam 16th I also agree that it makes no sense for childbirth to work as ‘badly’ as it does in our society today – there is no excuse for the high number of cesarean births, epidurals, epesiotomies, and other standard interventions.

And so, for most of my teenage years I assumed that Well, well. I did find an article that indicated that pushing may be contraindicated at least during the second stage of labor.

In that way, it’s opposite Birthing From Within – Hypnobirthing has you plan only for the natural birth, and Birthing from Within’s philosophy is to plan for the worst. Sep 23, Tina rated hypnonirthing it was ok.

I don’t even like the term ‘natural’. Nov 27, Bridget Jack Jeffries rated it it was ok Shelves: It helped me learn how to relax through the pain and work with the contractions, rather than tensing up with the pain and fighting them. Somehow I find this really, really hard to swallow. It didn’t help that she used “simple women” as the origins of the idea that birthing doesn’t have to be painful.

Some experience pain-free labor; that was not the case with me! Preview — HypnoBirthing by Marie F. In this easy-to-understand guide, HypnoBirthing founder Marie F.

I was not tense during my 1st pregnancy and I am not tense for my second. I skipped all those parts. So I read this book instead.

One thing I learned though: No matter where you stand on the natural-vs-medicated birth divide, there is some great info in this book. I believe in relaxation. I also found it interesting to read about the study where hypnosis worked to turn breech babies compared to external version.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method

I hypnobiryhing looking for this book in Austria I need it in English but, having a hard time finding it or getting it to me soon! So even though I read the book and knew the techniques, having a well versed nurse who reminded me of what I needed to do was really essential.

Additionally, the implication that the labor experience changes a child’s personality throughout their life is ludicrous. It has also been helpful to mine information out of the internet too.

Later, I read monhan more about natural childbirth and found that whatever the specific method envision a field of strawberries, breathe in special rhythms, don’t allow anyone to mention the words “pain” or “contraction” around you, etcthe point is that babies come out fairly easily if the mother is relaxed and if doctors don’t get in the way.

I do think that pain can be greatly reduced by using some of Mongan’s methods, but whether or not they will completely eliminate pain depends on the woman and her body.

As a result, the amount of woman-blaming and hostility towards women inherent in this book is quite incredible. I’m just as much the mother of my epidural son as my hypnobirthed daughter.

She had been induced and had a C-section, but was totally convinced of HB’s worth. I found the CD with relaxation techniques particularly helpful in relieving any anxiety I feel about the whole experience.
