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.
Nope I bought the hypnobabies program from another mama for cheap and did the self study. I guess I wasn't viewing the tracks as scripts. They don't have to be playing in labor. My point was that in no way are you forced to be stuck on a chair with someone talking/reading to you to keep you hypnotized. It is completely possible to do it in your own and to be mobile. I used earbuds during early labor but didn't use it during active labor, just put myself in center. I didn't think it would work at all. I fell asleep every night listening to them, no idea how any of the tracks ended and I didn't even practice much during the day. But I know for a fact that at no time during my labor did I feel like the "pain" was too much. 100 % difference from my first where I was freaking out at even 2cm and the labor was shorter than my second.
