    I know some of you ladies from March 2007 and/or September 2010, but my name is Erin and I have a very active 3 year old named Christopher and am expecting another little boy in September.

    Since the beginning of this pregancy, I have been saying that I want to have a different birth experience than I had with Christopher. While the outcome was wonderful, of course (healthy little guy), the process wasn't exactly what I had in mind (external version, heaps of pitocin, epidural . . . and lots of fear). I've been doing some research, and have decided to do HypnoBirthing, and am looking for a doula to help with our birthing experience. I'm working through the HynoBirthing book and have been listening to the relaxation exercises daily, while I look into classes. We will be at a hospital again, but the hospital we've chosen offers HypnoBirthing classes, acupuncture, reiki and aromatherapy, so I am hoping it will be a supportive environment.

    Anyway, I am going to jump into this board for the last 4 months of my pregnancy, if that's ok with all of you! I know I have a lot to learn.

    Hi Erin! I'm glad to see you over here!

    I'm doing hypnobabies and I really like it. I can't wait to see how it works for labor. I know it's not the same as hypnobirthing but I think they're pretty similar. Your hospital sounds amazing!

    Welcome to the board! My first birth was a pitocin, epidural, full of fear birth as well. Though i am happy to have my little boy it wasn't the birthing experience i dreamed of. But with my second that i just had in february i wanted a different experience so i looked into natural birth. I also chose the Hypnobirthing and hospital birth. It was an amazing experience for me. It was the birth i had hoped for at a hospital. Everything turned out great. Hypnobirthing and my husband really helped get me a great birthing experience. The hospital you are going to sounds so much better than the one i went to so i'm sure you will have a wonderful experience. My next birth i'm hoping will be a home birth using hypnobirthing.

    Hey Erin!! Good to see you It sounds like you have a great plan. I am doing Hypnobabies and have LOVED it so far. That's really cool that your hospital offers Hypnobirthing classes. And a doula can make a world of difference.

    Welcome! I'm doing Hypnobirthing too, for water birth (probably) at a birth center. FTM. Glad to have you here!
