Everyday tensions and stresses cause an array of physical and chemical reactions within us that can have negative effects on our health if not managed well. Such tensions can be heightened during pregnancy, and as labour approaches, if fear and concern are added to the mix, these bodily effects become more toxic, swirling through the mother’s system to be absorbed by the babe in her womb. If that is not reason enough to understand how to prevent this process during pregnancy, there is another...

I came across a HypnoBirthing website months before we were expecting and bookmarked it...
