I liked the tips for birth partners, and the accepting and reassuring way the author describes and explains things. Siobhan’s advice and guidance will change your mindset and enable you to navigate your birth with practical tools that ensure you feel calm and in control throughout.

There was some good stuff in here, but nothing you won’t already hear if you go to an NCT course before your birth. People can get as crunchy as they want, myself having packed an essential oil to bring to the hospital, but no amount of woowoo affirmations is going to give a newborn baby the Hepatitis B vaccine.

After reading this book I was actually really looking forward to giving birth and felt almost excited and not nervous at all at the prospect. As someone who enjoys yoga and have experience with breathing techniques for meditation etc, I can see this being useful.

That negative feeling can make a difficult birth more likely, causing a vicious cycle of tension that increases pain, that increases fear, that increases tension, etc.Hypnobirthing certainly doesn't involve being hypnotised; instead, it teaches you how your body works on a muscular and hormonal level when in labour and how you can use various relaxation techniques to ensure you are working with your body (rather than against it), making birth more efficient and comfortable. This book has completely changed my view on labour and how I would like it to pan out and I now feel happy and confident moving forward. I'm currently a few weeks away from my due date and hopefully, I will have a positive birth experience by practicing the techniques I learned in this book 😊. The author is so patronising and it’s very apparent what her view point is and what decisions she feels you should make.

By the time you finish this book you’ll feel relaxed, capable and genuinely excited about giving birth. Reading this book made me feel amazed by what our bodies can do and empowered by the knowledge that we can have a positive instead of a traumatic birth experience. So although there are some good take aways from it, but I would say to first timers to take the very specific image of birth portrayed in this book with a pinch of salt. This book has kind of a fancy/ weird title, but I think a better one (and I feel like the author would agree) would be: Just breathe! There were some really good takeaways from this book, and I particularly liked the science behind the labour.In fact, when it comes to pregnancy, birth and parenting, a good rule of thumb is: never miss an opportunity to sleep. In this book, Siobhan debunks common myths about hypnobirthing and explains why she believes it can make every type of birth a better experience – from a water birth at home to an unplanned caesarean in theatre.

There were a couple of sections that detailed the science behind contractions and labour that I found useful. Even just understanding what your body is actually doing, and what your options really are makes all of the difference. These cookies help provide information on metrics the number of visitors, bounce rate, traffic source, etc.I'm sure the breathing techniques will also come in handy but the sections of the book focusing on birth stories and reinforcing that you can say no to any intervention were less informative for me. This book has some valuable information – breathing techniques, partner-assisted exercises, affirmations, and general birth education that can (hopefully) make for a positive birth experience.
