Our first is due end of march 2014 and I've read a few posts about successful hypnobirthing deliveries at QMH but would love to hear more recent accounts. I haven't yet had the QMH tour but am sceptical about staff accommodating my attempt to try a hypnobirth. Also, is it possible to do the technique by just reading the book and listening to the cd or are classes a must? I really don't want to do classes for hypnobirth if I can't do it at QMH ....
