Most Helpful

informative & Down to earth

Suzy is very enjoyable to listen to and I am delighted I got the audiobook of this rather than hardcopy as I usually would.

Pros:
Focus is on being Calm ( not anti drugs or didactic),
Informative,
Accessible ( not too big or long)

Cons
Too much of an emphasis on birthing partner which is stressful and liable to cause upset in mothers that have no birthing partner or an unsupporting partner. There are many women who are already frustrated by their partners, husbands etc. for not understanding pregnancy (and lets face it - even supporting partners can be despised and " do no right " due to hormones!)
that hearing Suzy emphasise all the things a partner could/should be doing may encourage even more resentment towards their already "useless"partner.

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.
