Home Birth Preparation
Remember, pain in labour is predominantly the result of tension in your body, and tension is the result of fear. Take away the fear and the tension and you will naturally reduce the pain. The CD teaches you deep relaxation and breathing exercises as well as unique pain management strategies which enable you to be calm, in control and to manage the level of pain during the birth.
It gives you the opportunity to "experience" a wonderful, calm home birth in your mind, from the first contraction through to holding your baby in your arms.
Once you have listened to the CD many times (we recommend you listen to it at least 20 times), your mind and body become more and more comfortable with the concept of a calm birth so that when labour starts, you actually feel quite familiar and confident with the birthing process.
The suggestions on the CD put in place specific triggers so that when all the way through the birthing process, you remain calm, relaxed and feeling in control. The suggestions build in the sights and sounds of your home environment eg "....and being at home encourages you to sink even deeper into relaxation", "the familiar sights around you increase your confidence in your bodies ability to birth your baby".
