Did you buy the antenatal pack for 70euro (not the vbac one)? I was thinking about giving them a go but was never any good at meditation so not sure if they will work for me
if they would ease labour I'm happy to join the hippy club
Thanks TwoMums - we've spent long periods of time apart in the past, and we do cope, but it's not easy. He was stuck in Cairo when all hell broke loose there last year - the worry was intense, but I think if we can get through that, we can get through anything.
It's the one for 69 something: GentleBirth™ Antenatal Program
There's another thread around here somewhere with a good few other Mums who have heartily recommeneded it.
I'm not much good at meditating either, but I've popped the mp3's on my phone and listen to them either first thing in the morning, or last thing at night. I'm also avoiding all birth stories (no 'One Born Every Minute' for me, thank you!) so that the experience will be mine alone. I'm a big believer in the fact that your imagination can make things much better or much, much worse, so I want to help it out in whatever way I can.
Hubby thinks I am a bit mad, but he happily supports me in all my crazyness if it makes me feel better.
