The client that I worked with who used Hypnobabies (and also the associated doula training that I went through) used scripts and cd's while you were learning, and then also used a set of for use during labor. The mama used most of the script on cd by herself while she was in early labor, and then we also had them playing on the cd player in the room. At some point those cd's got turned off & I took over - but really helping her more with the cue words when a surge was coming on and then when it was over.

I'm sure there are a lot of different methods on how you use this and I can only speak to my one experience.

lilbitcrunchy - did you maybe do Hypnobirthing insteat of Hypnobabies? The breathing aspect of it sounds more like the "birthing" method and I know that they don't use scripts during labor. It's just all so confusing.
