This book takes a refreshingly positive approach to birth, helping mothers-to-be look forward to the experience with excitement moderately than apprehension. Written by a clinical hypnotherapist and doula, this guide provides practical and reassuring mindfulness techniques to practice right through pregnancy and labor to ensure you remain relaxed, confident, focused, and in regulate. There are also downloadable hypnosis and relaxation tracks for you to use and enjoy. With advice from nurses and midwives as well as hypnotherapists and psychologists, this book will answer all your questions, provide an explanation for your options, and teach you to believe your body so you’ll be able to have the birth that you wish to have.
