The instant I heard about hypnobirthing I was curious. I ordered the kindle version because the price was really low at the moment. I started reading instantly. It's a different, interesting and positive look at birth. I really enjoyed reading it and use a lot of the relaxation and breathing techniques that are mentioned.
In some chapters it's a bit long winded and I had to stop reading after my first wave of enthusiasm ceased. A lot of things get repeated over and over again. Which can be quite annoying. And I needed a lot more time for the whole book than I thought.
The book didn't persuade me to invest into a hypnobirthing class but I don't regret reading it. I still have 8 weeks until my due date but I am looking forward to testing myself and what I learned about hypnobirthing.
