It didn't work for me but I've heard it works great for others. I think for me the problem was they wouldn't admit me, my contractions were really close but not doing anything and so I was forced to roam the hospital halls (the hospital was an hour away) and I wasn't prepared for relaxing standing up, walking in cold, dark hallways. So that just threw everything off. I've heard that hypnobabies helps teach you to relax in all kinds of places and situations. I don't know if this is true, but I do advise you to practice relaxing in all different situations and positions.
