Antenatal classes usually start 8 to 10 weeks before your baby is born, and happen once a week for about 2 hours.A 2105 study reveals that the Bradley Method may be more comprehensive than HypnoBirthing because it covers care during pregnancy, during childbirth, and even postpartum. Lamaze is a method that aims to help couples feel more confident in the birthing process. It focuses on pain management techniques, like breathing and massage, to help move labor along and serve as natural pain management. Then there is the logic problems throughout the book. If women should instinctively know how to bear children without pain, then why criticize the men in history for NOT giving them painkillers. Then when they did give them painkillers, don't criticize them for hospitalizing when those painkillers had risks. Also, death in childbirth did not go up because of hospitals, they went down. Just look at the statistics of both child and maternal mortality in developing nations. It's huge!

I'm a little disappointed in this book even though it was recommended all over the internet for those who want to have a natural birth. I do congratulate the author on giving woman other options than medication to deal while the pain of labor. The problem is her biased narrative. Specifically, the chapter on the history of childbearing is bogus.With my hypnobirthing delivery in 2006, I started out with this book and listened to the CD that came with it every night. However, I felt that I needed more and turned to a great CD from Giuditta Tornetta. As I got closer to the birth, I also bought the Come Out Baby CD from Hypnobabies. This CD and Tornetta's (I alternated them to avoid boredom) enabled me to relax deeply. I then used the Come Out Baby CD during labor and had a pain free labor until 8 cm. Unfortunately, I ended up losing my concentration due to some interventions from the hospital - I hadn't fully released my fear of pitocin - and could not reestablish my deep relaxation. On the flip side, I understand the theory behind this book, that women should not be scared of giving birth. It is one of the most exciting and powerful experiences in the world. My baby was not brought into the world through hypno-birthing, but she is perfect all the same. The authors would like for you to believe otherwise. That my baby would be better off if she came out "naturally." Well...naturally would have included a dead mom. If you can do natural, more power to you. But if you have to have a C-section or epidural, I really don't think that makes you less of a person, and shouldn't make you feel guilty like the authors imply it should. Even still, I do plan to practice the relaxation techniques, take the remaining recommendations with a grain of salt, and work toward an epidural-free, natural labor experience.
