Effective and informative

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.

Good Book - DO NOT BUY FROM AUDIBLE

What did you like best about Hypnobirthing Home Study Course Manual? What did you like least?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not relevant.

What does Kathryn Clark bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

Was Hypnobirthing Home Study Course Manual worth the listening time?

Yes, I learned a lot about this birth method and hope to use it.

Any additional comments?

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!

Good, but a little annoying

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.

Annoying Narration!!

I'm sorry this book is well written, has great information and im.all for hypnobirthing, but I CANNOT STAND this narrator's voice and cadence. It's just awful, she is far too cherry, and way too excited about every sentence. To be honest I didnt even finish this book and just downloaded another hypnobirthing book because I couldn't take it anymore. There is nothing calming or soothing about her at all. It's really too bad because it's a great book she just should have had someone else narrate it for her.

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.

Content is fine. Voice is annoying.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Read it with your own internal voice, don't bother trying to listen to the narration. Her voice is comparable only to what i'd imagine an Australian person would sound like pinching their nose, whilst talking between bouts of chewing on a cactus.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The actual content was thought-provoking.

Did Kathryn Clark do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Non-fiction.

Could you see Hypnobirthing Home Study Course Manual being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

It would be pretty unique if it was.

Amazing informative book

We did a hypnobirthing course with our local midwives which was great, but only 5 sessions long. I used this book alongside the classes because it was more thorough and in depth. Kathryn has a lovely way about her and she helped me relax so much, to the point where I completely changed my mind about where to give birth and we are now planning a home birth for our baby due any day now! I will certainly review again after having the baby but regardless, this book has been so informative for me and my partner and has helped prepare us for whatever comes along. I feel confident and happy and relaxed to face whatever birth I have but with the help of this book we are visualising a calm and peaceful time. This book really helped me face my fears and look deeply into what was holding me back from having the birth I really wanted. It's empowering and every woman should have access to this incredible, natural and healthy approach to childbirth. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Helped me stop fearing labour!

I'm still waiting for the birth but feel so much more prepared.
I was really anxious about labour and the birth but since listening to this book I feel a lot more confident that I will cope and I just generally feel a lot more calm about the whole process.
The author makes a LOT of sense and there's some excellent strategies for calling yourself down and even if I don't have the perfect birth described in the book, I know I will be a lot more relaxed and that this will make it so much easier and probably quicker too!

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...

Boring and needs to get straight to the point.

There is too much historical context which is not necessary. Even if you find it interesting she seems to go over the same historical information a number of times.

such a great resource

I've really benefited so far from all the content - information and skills - included in this home study manual. listening instead of reading means I can make the most of my commute. the course is broken into sensible and effective sections to gradually build your confidence. I'm very excited about my upcoming birth experience, now, regardless of exactly how it plays out - ie I have developed a much greater sense of being able to accept and roll with something that may not be my ideal scenario, and previously it was those thoughts that generated the most fear for me.

the audio book includes one of the hypnosis CDs abs the rest can be purchased at reasonable prices on their website.

Not too bad , worth a go!

I used this book to get ready for the birth of my son, first baby. Although I wasn't 100% sure I was a hypnobirth mum I did want tips to relax and think about things differently and reduce my anxiety.

Initially I put this on a faster speed cos the voice annoyed me and it took a while to get into the "meaty bits"

Ultimately I went overdue and was due to be induced, then, in the end I had to be cut open very quickly to have my bub - the chapter about fear and release really helped as, things escalated quickly and I was able to keep thinking about the tips and keep my mind calm and be ok with the quick plan change.

I'd probably use this audio in conjunction with the/ a book as it was useful to listen to before bed but it's annoying you can't see the title of the chapters to flick Back to. I used the notes functionality liberally tho to playback bits to my husband.

Could have been better

Unfortunately the reader has quite a nasal voice and consistently mispronounces words, for example every time she says "ekspecially".
There is also quite a long section which just assumes that the reader will be religious. This book can be useful to non-religious people as well. It's a shame because a lot of the information is good.
