"I must be honest, when I first listened to the CD I thought it would do nothing, but something just kicked in once I was in labour. The midwives could not believe how calm I was and in tune with my body. I was so pleased I did not need any more pain relief as normally I take something with the first sign of pain - Emma, Wales

“My midwife was amazed how clam I was without pain relief. One of the doctors was sure I had an epidural based on my calm demeanour.” Ann McNeeney
"When I first went to do a tour of the labour ward I felt very negative about it. But after listening to the CD I felt more positive. I had to have an ECV done and felt calm when I was in the ward. My contractions started a 5 am. I had a bath and listened to the CD again. We went into hospital around 10.30 am. The midwife examined me and I was 9 cm dilated! I had wanted a water birth but the midwife said it wouldn’t be full in time.
The second stage only lasted 20 minutes, and 4 pushes and he was out! Luke was born at 12.40. Throughout the experience the midwife kept commenting on how calm and relaxed I was. She said I could come again and she wished all women were so relaxed. The CD definitely helped me 100% to have a better attitude towards the hospital and to feel relaxed, confident and in control during the birth. Thank you so much for helping me to have a positive birth experience" Nikki Harris
"I had the best birth experience. I was the one who kept control and made decisions during the birth I was able to use the breathing techniques during the birth when I needed it the most. Everything developed so quickly and I was so calm. Again the CDs help immensely during the pregnancy in terms of getting proper sleep and loosing anxiety that I had. I wish everyone a same experience" Osen Atternik
"At 38 weeks I was diagnosed with Choloystasis and had to be induced.
I was extremely calm throughout the induction and went for a walk - had some pain but did not really dwell on it. My husband did not think anything was happening so went to have dinner in the canteen. When he came back my waters had already broken and I was sitting on the edge of the bed ready to go to the delivery suite. It was very quick.
While I was waiting for the birthing pool I dealt with the pain by concentrating on my breathing and by visualising nice places. After being in the pool I was soon fully dilated and my son was soon born. I only had 2 puffs of gas and air as I did not really want it. I cant say it did not hurt, but I managed my pain. I found this birth much easier than my first birth and my son is extremely happy and peaceful - he rarely cries and is a delight!" Lynn Kydd

How does it work?
Remember, pain in labour is predominantly the result of tension in your body, and tension is the result of fear. By rehearsing an instinctive natural birth over and over again in your mind, any fear of the birth becomes less and less as your mind and body become familiar with the instinctive process of birthing. So once you have taken away the fear, your body will be far more relaxed, so by removing the tension, you will naturally reduce the pain.
By listening to the CD during pregnancy, you are effectively rehearsing the way you will act both physically as well as emotionally during the birthing process. The CD is divided into 3 tracks. The first gives information on how best to use the CD.
The second track is the full birth preparation hypnosis session which takes you through deep relaxation and breathing exercises followed by a detailed guided visualisation of the birth. It gives you the opportunity to "experience" a wonderful, calm birth in your mind, from the first contraction through to holding your babies in your arms.
Once you have listened to the CD many times (we recommend you listen to it at least 20 times), your mind and body become more and more comfortable with the concept of a calm birth. As the mind does not know the difference between imagination and reality, once labour actually starts your mind simply responds in the way it has rehearsed over and over again.
The suggestions on the CD put in place specific triggers so that all the way through the birthing process, you remain calm, relaxed and feeling in control. The CD contains specific suggestions based on birthing in the hospital environment. These include using the sights, smells and sounds of the hospital in a positive way to maximize your sense of calm, relaxation and being in control eg "every time a new face walks in, it is a sign for me to feel when more confident in my body", " the sounds and smells of the hospital encourage me to feel even more relaxed and centred"
The third track is a short 15 minute relaxation for when you want a quick “boost” but do not have time for the full hypnosis session. You will however stil be gaining from the relaxation and breathing techniques.
