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)
