I don't want to spend $10 on an app without knowing what it actually sounds like first. I really like the idea and want to try it, but $10 is too much to gamble if it isn't very good.
Thanks for your reply -- that's a very good point that there's no way of knowing what the content in the app is... We'd completely missed that!
I'll update the iTunes description shortly to include length of tracks and what they cover and I'll try to put some samples of the audio on the app description page at http://www.innerv.net/app/hypnosis-for-childbirth.htm
In the meantime, I've described the three goals below. I hope that's helpful for you.
Thanks once again for your feedback and we wish you a healthy and happy labour!
## Early Pregnancy (0–3 months) - 25mins
The early pregnancy hypnosis track addresses the natural changes that occur within your body in the early months of pregnancy.
Visualisation tools are used to enhance the action of your altering body to enable it to work smoothly and efficiently. During the audio you will be guided through a hypnotic experience where you will be able to identify natural concerns that arise during the early months and choose to resolve them. The journey will enhance your bonding and excitement of this wonderful experience.
This track can be listened to at any point in pregnancy but has maximum benefit in months 0–3.
## Mid Pregnancy (3–6 months) - 16mins
The mid pregnancy track enhances your ability to relax fully and enhance your body’s adaptation to pregnancy.
During the middle phase of your pregnancy you may well feel less tired, perhaps you are ‘blooming’. Many women have returned to their usual busy lives once pregnancy is really established and it is easy to forget about being pregnant and the wonderful journey that is ahead of you.
In this hypnotic experience you will have the space to really focus on the wondrous changes in your body and your life, learn to use your mind to fully relax at will and recharge your batteries to remain healthy, energetic, optimistic and excited to meet your baby.
This track can be listened to at any point in pregnancy but has maximum benefit in months 3–6.
## Preparing for Birth (6–9 months) - 28mins
During the preparation for birth hypnotic track you will experience labour as a rehearsal, one of the most valuable hypnotic tools. Listening to this regularly will enable you go into a deeply relaxed state.
Your mental preparation will enable you to get into the zone when you really are in labour, thus getting the most out of each and every contraction, which research demonstrates reduces the length of labour. You will be given options of tools to enhance your experience, reduce intensity and feel relaxed and deeply content.
With regular listening you will find that you confidently and easily go into this deeply internal state during labour, allowing your body to work smoothly and effectively with patience and excitement to meet your baby.
This track can be listened to at any point in pregnancy but has maximum benefit in months 6–9.
I wasn't thinking of a "lite" version-- although if you did that, I wouldn't split the trimesters--just offer less content overall for less cost, in my opinion. However I meant that I would prefer to hear a short sample of what this app sounds like, know how long the tracks are, how many there are, etc before purchase. I see the screenshot that says "goal" early pregnancy, but I have no idea what other "goals" are available-- and right now, my goal is hypnosis for labor, but it isn't clear if that is an option with this app. If this is an option, is it just 1 track? How long is it? Thanks for responding.
Yes - absolutely we are thinking of offering a "lite" version with only some content.
With hypnosis it can be hard to include only a part of the session. Do you think it would work to provide just the first trimester for a smaller amount, and provide the second and third trimesters as in-app purchases?
In the meantime, please have a listen to previews of Diana's other hypnosis tracks, for example on http://www.innerv.net/innervision-parenting/natural-conception-getting-pregnant-naturally/
