I have enjoyed listening to the information in this audio book. However, due to the fact that it is a learning course Audible is a terrible platform to get this information. If you are interested in this book and technique of birthing - go to the website hypnobirthinghub.com and buy the program there. You will get the correct information laid out the way it needs to be, the audio meditations and a manual to clarify. If you download this on Audible, the chapters are not clearly stated making it very hard to navigate and find information. Also, the corresponding website makes it very difficult to compare the information back and forth - I literally had to make a list of chapters and compare to the website's CD format. Do yourself a favor and buy the book the way it should be - NOT THROUGH AUDIBLE.
Kathryn has a soothing voice with an Australian accent. It sometimes would make me go to sleep and I would have to re-listen to parts of the book. I liked all the provided information but sometimes wanted the theory to quit and just tell me what to do step by step. There was some repetitive information.
Yes, I learned a lot about this birth method and hope to use it.
DON'T BUY FROM AUDIBLE - BUY FROM HYPNOBIRTHINGHUB.COM - Don't do what I have done and get frustrated and confused by the layout provided by audible! I have been back and forth emailing the company, trying to reference the website and eventually spending more money to download the manual and audio guides there - waste of money here!
I got this audiobook because the Mongan Method wasn't available on Audible, but I also read the Mongan Method and a lot of it is plagiarized and used in this book, even the anecdotes are stolen with details changed. But if you can get past that and accept this book, it has a lot of good information and the latter 70% or so is original material. Better than not having a hypnobirthing book in audio form. Also, the reading is a little obnoxious in the way she puts emphasis on the wrong words and her sentences don't flow cause she's trying to sound relaxing. If you always. notice that kind of thing, it may keep her reading from helping you relax fully. You get used to it though.
We listened to the book together with my husband and both think it made a big difference in building our understanding and confidence in natural birthing. We are planning on re-listening a few chapters again before the birth and practicing the recommended exercises and relaxation techniques.
The book is organized very effectively with the author presenting a thorough research context for a variety decisions leading to the birth as well as action plans for the expectant mother and her birthing partner. The language balance is great - it is neither overly scientific nor it is trivialized.
The book includes several relaxation tracks and references additional materials on the author's website that extend the usability of the book.
The narration is excellent. I have not heard a lot of professionally narrated books that are as good as this one.
Bottom line, this book is certainly a "keeper" in our audible library and worth paying for it.
Author approaches birth from the historical, emotional and practical prospective, making this book as great opportunity for people of all backgrounds to better understand and be empowered by their birth choices.
Just my personal take, but I couldn't relax to the narrators voice. I also found this to be watered down, quick and dirty with some of the science or facts, and generally not succinct.
I really enjoyed a lot of the relaxation practices presented. There is also a lot of good information about birth and interventions and options in general, but these were a little redundant for me as a doula. It would be great for someone who didn't know the stuff though. I do wish they had been a little fairer in their critique though. They were thorough with critiquing pros and cons of many medical procedures but presented some of the "alternative" practices, for example lotus birth, which has no known benefits and can lead to infection, without critique. I also wish there had been a more general guide to HOW to use the course...when to listen to what parts and when to listen to the extra audio tracks you can purchase. It didn't really feel like a "course" without that, just a pretty good book about birth. Overall, though, I'm very glad I listened, and I think combined with the audio tracks, it is a great resource.
"very useful but annoying narration!"
in depth hypnobirthing course but the narrator's voice is so annoying, really nasal and an annoying accent, would've been so much better if they'd hired a proper voice artist to narrate!
Also it would be useful if the chapters were titled.
"So much more than just relaxation techniques"
This book has is not just a tool to help you relax in your birth (thus eliminating pain) but also a mine of information on medical aspects of birth, thus helping you be prepared for many possible hospital situations, allowing you to make the best choices at the time. It gives a balanced account of many medical interventions - benefits and risks (whereas hospital may omit mentioning the risks) and thus helps you understand why natural birth is best. Knowing what effect interventions have on the baby is a great motivation for me to focus on relaxing and thus give my baby a calm start in life.
I only wish I found this book earlier...
