It also may shorten labor significantly: Later, I read much 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 hypjobirthing out fairly easily maris the mother is relaxed and if doctors don’t get in the way.

HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience.

So why not prepare for the best? Her main point is that most of the natural world gives birth without medical intervention, and that we, as natural beings, should also be able to do this. If you hurt, that’s not natural but Western indoctrination. Her chapter on the ‘history’ of childbirth pain was more painful, Monvan think, than giving birth could ever be.

How can some stranger, a random male doctor assigned to oversee their deliveries, tell how these “simple” women experienced childbirth? Now that I am pregnant again, I have turned to hypnobirthing for the second time.

Its philosophy is simple and based on that other horrendous book, “the Secret”: I really appreciated the chapter Mongan devotes to explaining the history of birth and how it changed from being a celebrated ritual to a shameful, fearful one.


She had been induced and had a C-section, but was totally convinced of HB’s worth. I also agree tha First of all, there are good things in this book.

I no longer believe that to be true. I once saw a cow giving birth on TV and it did not seem like that poor animal was comfortable. I was reading this to be familiar with other methods as a doula, and also just curious. Further, I find it a bit offensive that the premise of this book is that if you feel pain in childbirth, it is either because you fear the pain I didn’t, honestly or because somehow you secretly WANTED the pain so that everyone would give you attention.

Hypnoirthing to say about this book. 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. She introduces multiple relaxation techniques but then says you only need to focus on one, but by that time I wasn’t quite sure which hypnobirhing she meant.

And so, for most of my teenage years I assumed that Well, well. Jul 08, Laura rated it it was ok Shelves: In the brief paragraphs that touch on the different visualization techniques, they are vaguely described and poorly explained. Additionally, moongan implication that the labor experience changes a child’s personality throughout their life is ludicrous. This entire review probably falls under the category of “too much information.

Monhan is something we do all the time – the Mongan Method simply organises it into a programme for birth and adds that there’s simply n I combined this with classes from a HypnoBirthing practitioner. I balked a bit about some of the specifics, but the general concepts were appealing.

If I could give it zero stars, I would. I would love to see the science behind her claims. Unlike my first delivery, I approached labor with enthusiasm rather than as a marathon event that I had to work through.

The first is the dismissing of the theory about fear, and the second is the relentless focus on pain. I was mostly quiet while giving birth, but I was quiet because it was hurting so much, and I felt like I was going to lose it if I let myself talk or scream or interact, in any way, with the outside world.


The most assuring thing I’ve read my whole pregnancy. 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.

You really need to work with a partner and make sure that they know how to help you to find your deep relaxation if you lose your concentration. While I can get behind the idea that birth doesn’t have to be scary and horrible, and that the scary parts can be eased with self-relaxation techniques, I just can’t read any more of this book.

Remember, ladies, any complications are your own fault. Feb 24, Sally rated it liked it Shelves: This book is simply very unrealistic for what I’m betting is the majority of women who have waited til their 30s to get preggo. Anyone who has given birth without drugs and tells you “It didn’t hurt at ALL Open Preview See a Problem? I did find an article that indicated that pushing may be contraindicated at least during the second stage of labor.

I’m not saying that pain-free labor doesn’t exist, it probably does, sometimes, for some women.
