Since our moms ask for this information all the time in classes, I am sharing how I organized and loaded the Hypnobabies CD tracks into my iPOD as a backup for my hypno-doula clients:

I loaded most of the titles as a separate playlist or album, so that they didn’t automatically play the next title when one ended, and I labeled each track with the same ‘artist’/Kerry Tuschhoff, and the same ‘genre’/Hypnobabies so that they would sort into a Hypnobabies only album/play list.

The only exception to that is the Relaxation Music CD…I loaded all three tracks on one playlist so that they will play one after the other continuously, and I don’t have to restart the music so often when I am playing it aloud in the room.

This list is in the order that moms typically listen to their CDs in their birthing times:

Early birthing time???…or for practice, if mom’s not even sure ‘this is it’ yet…
“Relaxation Music”…all 3 tracks in one playlist to play continuously, while using the finger-drop
“Birthing Day Affirmations”…also very early on while using the finger-drop
“Special Place”…to reinforce this in your mind early in your birthing time
“Easy, Comfortable Childbirth”…for the same reason
If you’d like, you could also load your…
“Visualize/Create Your Hypnobabies Birth” (the last Hypnobabies class birth partner’s script) some moms like to listen to this one during their early birthing time).

Active First Stage… moms KNOW they’re having the baby TODAY…
“Fear Release/Fear Clearing”…to get rid of any ‘what ifs’ about this baby’s birthing, and to reinforce your Bubble of Peace
“Deepening”…to deepen your ability to enter hypnosis using your finger-drop and ‘Release’ cue, and to reinforce your ‘Peace’ cue for instant physical comfort.

When moms begin to know that they need a little something different or more to listen to (to deepen their relaxation, their hypnosis and to create more powerful anesthesia as a result, and for the car ride…
“Easy First Stage” (from the “Birth Guide” CD)

As soon as moms begin to feel any pushy pressure/second stage…this track plays out loud in the room…
“Pushing Baby Out” (also from the “Birth Guide” CD)

A mom from the Yahoo Group posted this a few days ago and gave me permission to share.

I posted a few days ago that I ended up in preterm labor on
Wednesday. I received a shot of terbutaline and was ordered to take
it easy. Well, today my contractions got really hard and frequent and
were not stopping no matter what. I quickly got online and
downloaded “Baby Stay In.” I took it with me to the hospital,
listening to it a bit on the way. Then I had to stop listening to
deal with admissions, nurses, etc.

I received another shot of terbutaline upon arrival, and though it
slowed things down a bit, it didn’t completely stop the contractions.
Next, they tried procardia. Again, the contractions continued and the
baby wasn’t doing great either. I told my husband that I was going to
put on my headphones and listen to Baby Stay In, and that he needed to deal with the nurse interactions for the next 30 minutes. My eyes were closed, so I didn’t see the monitor, but my husband said, within a few minutes of starting the track, my contractions COMPLETELY STOPPED (after 4 hours of contracting!). At the end of the 30 minutes, I looked at the monitor and saw only a flat line where the contractions used to be. I had one more contraction right after
coming out of hypnosis, but then nothing.

The nurse was amazed at the effectiveness. My husband had explained Hypnobabies to her while I was listening, and when I finished, she came in and said, “Your relaxation stuff really works well!” I was discharged within 15 minutes.

This experience has given me so much confidence that Hypnobabies is going to give me the wonderful birth that I want! I am so glad I found this incredible program!!

Interesting question.   There is a good article on Associated Content that asks this question.

My thinking is that if moms are listening to affirmations throughout their pregnancy then they are more empowered and stand up for their rights and trust their bodies.  All of these things help a mom make more informed choices and hoepfully have better births! 

There is a great comment about the Birthing My Twins Naturally CD on the Hypnobabies Review Blog, where a mom felt that her affirmations really helped her stand strong in a discussion with her care provider. 

Here is a blog post from a mom who uses affirmation in her pregnancy and how it helps her.  It includes her long list of affirmations!    Good for her! 

I wish all moms would listen to affirmations.  Hypnobabies has a great Affirmation CD for pregnancy and birthing.  They are also now available as MP3 downloads!
