How long should I practise my hypnobirthing techniques every day?

I saw a comment in a Facebook Group couple of days ago with a lady asking, “Do I need to be practicing for one hour a day?” It’s something that comes up quite a lot, particularly when people find the Calm Birth School, or whatever hypnobirthing method that they’ve signed up to, quite late in…
