The Pink Kit Birthing Method?

I just wrote a post about books on the Bradley Method, and thought I'd also ask about the Pink Kit. While looking at Bradley Method info, I've seen it mentioned twice on 2 different websites in the last few minutes. Anyone had any experience with this?

Re: The Pink Kit Birthing Method?

I bought it in my last pregnancy. I thought the stuff about mapping your pelvis and being aware of what movements and positions open it was really interesting and useful. The rest of it didn't really strike me as a "method", but I didn't read through the entire set of materials, so what do I know! (I used HypnoBabies for both of my births with great success.)

Re: The Pink Kit Birthing Method?

We got the Pink Kit.

It was useful. The video is kind of dated, so we made fun of it a LOT. But it really was helpful. It's the only birth prep we did (no class, our area was too rural) and I felt fully prepared.

LOL ... just had a silly flashback ... there's this bit where they talk about trying to direct your breath to different parts of your body, and I just don't "do" highly abstract stuff so I thought it was SO funny.

So while I was in labor, LO's Dad would say, "OK direct your breath out through your knuckles ... OK now breathe through your kneecaps!" and I would just start to crack up, which helped a lot.

But seriously, it's good stuff for the price. AMAZING anatomy lessons, that I didn't find in any other book. Some of the Dad reviews were to the effect of, it made it seem as simple as learning about plumbing ... so I finally get it now. It helps you find where your bones are, and feel how you can make them move to open stuff up, so during labor you're already prepared to make everything move along easily.

Sounds cool! I'm glad to see at least a couple of positive reviews. Thanks
