“My main use of hypnobirthing was in the preparation for birth and prior to established labour. The recorded mediations, in particular ‘affirmation for beautiful birthing’ and ‘rainbow mist relaxation’, were a nightly ritual for me throughout my pregnancy. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I really enjoyed listening to the affirmations and every night there would be a particular affirmation that really resonated with me that would bring me much comfort and confidence to birth when the time came.”
