I had been contemplating doing a Hypnobirthing course for some time when you released the on-line course. With a toddler in tow, my Husband and I were finding it difficult to do the course in person, so when the online course was announced, it looked perfect.
By doing it online we were able to do the sessions when it suited us (often late at night over a cup of tea!), it also meant we were able to go back over any sessions.
This was particularly helpful, and reassuring, towards the end of my pregnancy when I felt I needed to 'recap'.
I was really happy with all the resources provided - I found having different options for the meditation tracks really helpful as it meant I could find one that 'worked' for me. I used the Affirmation track at least a few times a week and Glove of Endorphins every week. I had pre-eclampsia during my first pregnancy, so when my blood pressure started to rise towards the end of this pregnancy, I used the 'control room' technique from Glove of Endorphins to help control my blood pressure - and it worked. The very next visit to my OB my blood pressure was back to normal!
I would strongly recommend taking up the offer of a private one on one session. As this was my second baby, I had a fairly good idea of what to expect, so didn't have questions about the labour and birth so much but was looking to get some different relaxation tips. It also gave my husband and I a chance to practice the techniques with some instant feedback. Again, I would definitely recommend this session, particularly for first time parents.
