Temptation has reared its head, and I don’t know whether to give in.
I have the opportunity to train to teach hypnobirthing with the same practitioner who taught me to practice it. Now, it worked very well for me and I’m very enthusiastic about it now, so I’d love to share that with other women. Also, if I’m confidently honest about my own skills, I tend to be pretty good at training and giving advice. So I can really see myself enjoying helping others gain from hypnobirthing.
But it’s not, of course, straightforward; training is quite expensive (as all worthwhile things seem to be) and we’re on one salary at the moment. And I wouldn’t be able to practice more than occasional evenings and weekends because I have a small child I really want to spend lots of time with and a full-time job I’m returning to next year that I enjoy very much indeed and wouldn’t give up.
So the real question is how much time and money is it acceptable to spend to indulge in something that I’d just really like to do for my own personal satisfaction?
The jury’s out.
