The best gift to yourself mama!
This book is fab. Everything is presented in a natural, respectful, down to earth way. They truly wish to empower you to have a positive a birth and equip you with the skills, knowledge and strength to own your own birth. I'm so glad I bought this book for myself and I think it's one of the best things you can try on the lead up to your birthing day!

Not so complete guide to hypnobirthing
It was a very factual book, however completely missed the mark when it comes to being a complete guide to hypnobirthing. She spent a long time telling us how valuable hypnobirthing is but did not manage to explain how to achieve these results as the book title lead me to believe.

Good short overview of Hypnobirthing
I liked this book for being concise, thorough, and well thought out. When I first began learning about Hypnobirthing it was a great starting point as classes were not offered in my area and some of the longer books I began with felt like too much info from the start. I was essentially weeding through them to get basic knowledge. This broke it down and still offered the necessary information to have the full Hypnobirthing experience even if you decide to research no further. It's also great for women who want a Hypnobirth but do not necessarily want to subscribe fully to all natural birthing. This book supports using the method no matter what path you take...some of the others seem more opinionated about correct natural birthing choices.
I've also read the Hypnobirthing Home Study course (which is much longer but full of good info, especially if your determined to have a fully natural birth) and Mindful Birthing (which is a good overview of incorporating mindfulness into the process). Both have also been very helpful for me as I view mindfulness as essentially in the same family of theories and methods and I am a previous therapist who utilized both skills in my profession.
However, if I had to choose only one of the 3, I'd pick the Calm Birth Method for all the reasons I stated above. Good luck ladies!

Waste of time
It spends half the book telling you to breath during labor and to stay calm but doesn’t tell you HOW to do it.
Almost most of the birth story’s on here are we on getting epidurals. Which is the opposite of what most women buy this book for.
