Hypnobabies has some great tools that are so beneficial for VBAC moms.
There are 2 different products to help.
Hypnobabies created VBAC Hypnobirth Tracks
This wonderful two-track MP3 was created for all our moms who understand that their body knows just how to birth a baby. It is dedicated to the amazing women that are determined to give birth vaginally after a previous Cesarean, in comfort, joy and love!
Track # 1 – My VBAC Success: In deep hypnosis, this wonderful track gives you many powerful suggestions for vaginal birth preparation, optimal positioning of your baby, strengthening of your uterus, avoiding negativity, and complete VBAC confidence. Taking you farther than you ever imagined with positive re-framing of any fears or concerns, you are allowed to enjoy a daily dose of support and very effective inner training for VBAC success. Very powerful!
Track # 2 – VBAC Birth Visualization: In this deeply relaxing visualization, you *create* your own positive and very successful VBAC birthing, just as you desire it to be. From the start of your birthing throughout the dilation phase and *moving past any challenges from your last birthing*, as well as easily birthing your baby into your own arms, your mental VBAC birthing rehearsal instills a blueprint for success that allows you to fully enjoy your pregnancy with this baby to the fullest.
These hypnosis tracks can really help!
Knowing that your VBAC birth is possible, your inner mind will then create behavior and circumstances that reflect your positive VBAC Birth Visualization’s perfect plan!
They didn’t have this CD when I was having my VBACs. But I have since gotten it for some of my Hypnobabies students and I have listened to it. It was really good. The first track was full of good affirmations and support specific for VBAC moms. The second track is about visualizing your VBAC birth, I think the visualization track is GREAT!
Alone this CD won’t help you prepare for a comfortable un-medicated birth (you would need the Hypnobabies Home Study course for that) but it would help with attitude and believing in your bodies ability to VBAC, etc!
