Self-hypnosis birthing methods

Has anyone tried self-hypnosis birthing methods? I have heard a little bit about these but I don't know anyone who has actually tried during labor. I would love to know if this really helps with pain or not.

I strongly recommend Hypnobabies. Easy at home course that will really help you chill out for labor--even if you do choose an epidural it can really help!

I've never heard of this before, but it looks very interesting. Thanks for posting the link--I'm going to bookmark it and learn more about this for my next pregnancy.

The hospital that I'm delivering at offers a hypnosis session, but I think I might enjoy it more if I could learn about it at home -- on my own time. You feel that you can get just as much out of a homecourse?

I can recommend Hypnobirth Educators, my daughter in law attended 4 classes with one of their teachers, she claims it taught her how to relax and hypnotherapy techniques to use before and during the birth of my grandchild. The teacher was professional but caring. She has since trained with them and is now a Hypnobirthing Consultant teaching groups of mothers-to-be and a birth partner how to have a calm natural birth. contact them on www.hypnobirtheducators.com
