I am 17 +1 and thinking about starting Hypnobirthing classes. I have heard brilliant reviews but no negative reviews so far........does anyone have any opinions on Hypnobirthing?

I've not done any classes as they are so expensive but I've got the natal hypnotheraphy CDs.
I think they are fab (well actually I've only done the Pregnancy Relaxation CD) and I've actually fallen asleep nearly every time I've done it. (I'm not actually asleep as you stir as soon as she starts counting at the end).
I'm really looking forward to putting the techniques in to practice when I go in to labour.
Love and hugs

Hi Kittyboo, did you see that article on baby expert yesterday, I read it but still find it hard to believe.
Lolliepop - I bought the natal hypnotherapy pregnancy relaxation CD today after I read your post, sounds really relaxing, thought id try it as even though im exhausted I find it hard to relax and lie staring at the ceiling thinking there is something I should be doing

I'm studying to be a hypnotherapist at the moment and my opinion so far is that it's fantastic, I've heard nothing negative at all and will be trying it when I have my baby in July. My teacher is going to give me some advice and cd's to use and I will probably have a few sessions with her when I go on maternity leave. From just doing basic relaxation techniques I would recommend it to anyone.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
