Believe it or not, Hypnobabies can help you sleep better!
Here are some comment from the Hypnobabies Yahoo Group.
I don’t know about the rest of you mama’s, but I have gotten more sleep with this pregnancy than I have with any of my previous 3. I didn’t start sleeping soundly until I started my tracks 4 weeks ago. I went from waking about 4 times per night (to pee) to just ONCE. Now I wake either once or twice the past week.
Last night I didn’t listen to any tracks before bed and boy did it make a difference. I could NOT get into a good sleep. I was constantly tossing from one side to the next and getting up to pee several times before 2am. At 2am I decided to try putting my lightswitch into the ‘off’ position and that knocked me RIGHT OUT. I noticed at some point that I was moving around and put my switch in ‘center’ instead so that I could sleep and move around without overriding the switch in my sleep. I don’t know if you’re supposed to use your switch when sleeping or not, but I know that I actually had deep, peaceful sleep until my normal wakeup time this morning because of it.
I have DEFINITELY experienced this too!! I’ve been telling people that even if this whole hypnosis thing doesn’t help one bit with the birth, it’s still worth doing just for the amazing impact it has on sleep and your stress and anxiety level during pregnancy. I started Hypnobabies around 34 weeks and I’ve actually slept better in the third trimester than I did in the first two. Who would have thought that was possible??
I’m almost 30 weeks and I just started week 4 of Hypnobabies. I’d been having mega problems sleeping starting over a year ago with my first pregnancy, which ended in miscarriage. This pregnancy I would wake to go pee and then lie there for hours not sleeping. About two weeks into hypnobabies I started to fall back asleep after getting up to pee. Last night I slept from 11:00 until 5:00 — an insanely long time compared to what I’ve been getting! My sleep is definately not perfect (defined as getting at least 8 hours/night), but it sure has improved. I can only attribute it to hypnobabies.
