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.

I did find the trust in the natural process of birth a little extreme. I didn’t want anyone picking it out of the garbage and accidentally reading this.

What I did find extremely helpful, though, were the breathing techniques and basically all of the explanations about how your hypnobirthinng works itself through this natural process and what you can do to “stay out of the way”. Book ratings by Goodreads. Preview — HypnoBirthing by Marie F. Some of the visualization techniques suggested seem kind of hokie to me like imagining yourself floating on a “strawberry cloud,” or that your uterine muscles are flowing “blue satin ribbons”but I’m sure that kind of visualizations work for some people.


These relaxation techniques have helped me approach moments where I would of otherwise lost patience or felt discouraged, instead hypnobidthing calm, creative and even find humor.

Somehow I find this really, really hard to swallow. Feb 24, Sally rated it liked it Shelves: That’s what happens when something the size of a watermelon comes out hypnobirthingg a hole the size of a quarter.


So don’t give me this BS no pun intended about animals doin’ it “naturally. Seeing is very much believing and I can honestly say I’m blown away everything I’ve read and seen so far surrounding this approach to positive childbirth. And so, for most of my teenage years I assumed that Well, well. I did find many similarities – hypnosis in this sense is little different from how Bradley Method talks about relaxation. I burned this book after giving birth. The author talks of giving birth in a nice, trusting, positive environment, where you feel calm and loved and accepted.

The concept of hypnobirthing sounded like a good one to me to aid in the accomplishment of natural birth.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method

Marei, I have done years of yoga, and I know that you can stay in control and breathe through pain, to a certain degree. On the negative side, the book seems to present a moral philosophy of birth rather than information based upon research or current understanding of medical practices.
