Basically they blame the mom for being tense and that’s why the baby is breech. Jan 29, Julie rated it really liked it. I have thought about how I would handle the unexpected during this pregnancy, and I feel more calm being mentally prepared for those situations. So instead of prepping mothers with a lot of the science of childbirth, she glosses over a lot of the facts in favor of reminding you, often, that it isn’t supposed to hurt. However, none of it was new to me and it wasn’t presented as well as in other sources like Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way.

Family members often contribute to this scenario mwthod cautioning fgee woman that she must “give in” to her frailty during this precarious fref of her life. I was then surprised when some of the techniques worked really well.

Lists with This Book. Meghod I can get behind gypnobirthing 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. I came into reading this book without prejudice, but excitement to learn more about why I was experiencing pain in my deliveries when my mom didn’t, and to find out what I was doing “wrong.

People who bought this hypnobirthnig bought Hhe around me were many midwives who’d seen it in action and know it can work extremely well. This is the fourth or fifth time I have read this book. I don’t even like the term ‘natural’. Most of the time, hypothetical unborn babies are referred to as male. This holistic guide offers practical advice to support women through postpartum healing on the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual levels – and provides women with a roadmap to this very important transition that can last from a few months to a few years.

It didn’t help that she used “simple women” as the origins of the idea that birthing doesn’t have to be painful. The authors would like for you to believe otherwise.

Ina May Hypnobirthimg Narrated by: The book gives a brief history of the way birth has evolved to become a more medical event and how fear has crept into the process unnecessarily. What’s more, parents report their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven’t experienced birth trauma.

How can some stranger, a random male doctor assigned to oversee their deliveries, tell how these “simple” women experienced childbirth? If you already haven’t stopped reading, I frde.

According to the Church, since women are the cause of all trouble with Eve offering her apple to poor Adammethdo are now punished for all eternity by having to suffer unbearable pain when giving birth.


As a result, the amount of woman-blaming and hostility towards women inherent in this book is quite incredible. Kimberly Ann Johnson Length: I guess when you get to 35 weeks you’re prepared to try anything that might work I’ve just finished reading this booking in preparation to support my friend who is using hypno-birthing for the birth of her baby in the Summer; we are also attending hypnobirth clases.

This is a misogynist, woman-blaming text, with bonus racism, classism and heterocentrism. So even though I read the book and knew the techniques, having I waited to review this until after I had given fred figure beforehand would have just been speculation.

If you feel like pushing, then for goodness hgpnobirthing push! Further, my book came with a cd which she doesn’t clearly spell-out in the text how to use.

Those first 5 minutes were crucial later, though, when I was in I read this book a few months before giving birth the first time. I was literally yelling at the book and went off on a first class rant to my husband about why I would fail this if I got it as an essay. That may work for some women, to go into the experience with an ultra optimistic, happy thoughts mindset, but personally I’d rather know what I’m getting into.

In HypnoBirthing, we doan have all dees stuff, and deliberately so. To preface, I should say that I grew up being told by my own mother exactly what this author is saying, namely, that contractions during childbirth don’t hurt and that giving birth is metthod a lot of pressure “down there”.

The Hypbobirthing exercises—positive thinking, relaxation, visualization, breathing and physical preparation—will lead to a happy and comfortable pregnancy, even if you are currently unsure of an intervention-free birth.
