I enjoyed this book insofar as it introduced and provided some practical guidance for hypnobirthing. However, I was put off by the book's (and author's) constant reinforcement of brand.

Full of encouraging stories and tips for keeping yourself calm during labor. Highly recommend for expecting moms, even if you aren't going for a hypno birth. This book teaches you how to remove the panic the labor can bring.

Great book for preparing for labor and delivery. I used some of these techniques in births of my first 3 children and it’s a good refresher as I prepare for my next baby.

This book made me feel much more comfortable with the whole birthing experience in general. The breathing techniques also helped me deal with the anxiety I was experiencing throughout my pregnancy
