A New Book...

I'd intended for my second birthing methods post to be on the Bradley Method... which is why I haven't gotten to it yet lol. I haven't done my research on it yet... sorry! But I changed my mind (I'm allowed to do that right). It'll have to come later because I mangaged to get a new book the other day...

That's right... I picked up Hypnobirthing, the Mongan Method. It only took me two trips to the bookstore (months apart) to get it though. The first time someone had bought it just before we got there... wasn't even in the system that it was gone yet. My luck. Yesterday I went again w/ a friend and found it in minutes... Got a strange look from the cashier lol.. but oh well! Hit me as rather funny actually...

Anyways... point of this being. I loved this book. Seriously I finished it about an hour ago despite doing a million other things (and yes as someone has already pointed out that is a slight exaggeration...) and having to start and stop numerous times.

I'm not saying that we plan to use the method in the future... For one thing, we're no where near needing to make that decision lol (or at least I don't think we are).
I don't know if this makes any sense, but I don't want a repeat of what happened w/ Kalila. I want to know what we're going to do from the very beginning, or before, next time... be a little more prepared.

Besides that... I'm not sure how much support I would have with it. As Baba pointed out earlier, he's not a hippy. Normally I love him for that... but it would come in useful here lol.

But... I'm not discounting it altogether either. I still need to research the Bradley method... and possibly Birthing from Within a little more. Plus I do want to research this one more as well. I liked what I read, and so far it makes a lot of sense... despite my initial reaction to it (story for another time).

Beyond all that... I would definately recommend reading this book. Even if you are not planning to use the methods in it. Seriously... it has a ton of good information.

It goes into the history of childbirth, how it is/was viewed and treated during different times, how the drugs evolved, etc.

It talks about how our bodies work, or how they are supposed to work... and how fear effects the process.

It has a list of affirmations that I wish I had had back before Kalila was born. Forget before she was born, I wish we'd had them before we went to see Dr. Paine for the first time. I learned a lot from Kalila's birth, but at the same time... I could kick myself when I look back at everything that happened... Granted I'm sure it all happened for a reason... Sorry getting off topic and on a soapbox there lol.

Obviously a huge chunk of it is devoted to the method itself... How it came about. What is involved. Etc.

I'll apologize for jumping around so much... I'm kinda pulling this off the top of my head lol. Like I said before, I hadn't planned on getting into Hypnobirthing yet... but enjoyed this book so much I just had to write about it. I may go ahead and get the Bradley post done before I write one on the actual method itself... or I may continue on w/ this before going on to it. If that makes any sense... I don't know.

But yeah... Good book.
