I recently started looking into birthing classes and wanted more than what was offered at my hospital. I came across a hynobirthing website and was intrigued. Has anyone tried it? How did it work? Were the classes informative about L&D in general (I'm a FTM) or do I need to supplement with the hospital classes?
Also, I watched a couple of the videos... Made me twice think about the method. Might be a little too new age for me and DH. I practice yoga and appreciate alternative therapies but when things get too out there with the touchy/feely stuff it's just NMS. What was your overall impression?
Also, I will be giving birth in a hospital but want to go as natural as possible depending on the circumstances. Looks like many hypnobirths are at birthing centers or water births. Any experience with using it in a hospital setting?
