A safe, easier, gentle, more comfortable birthing, in the way that most mirrors nature.

HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy as it is a technique.  The concept is not new, but rather a 'rebirth' of a philosophy of birthing as it existed thousands of years ago.  The method teaches you to trust in your own body, and it's wisdom and power, to give birth in a gentle, comfortable way.

This method teaches that, in the absence of fear and tension, severe pain doesn't have to be a part of birthing.

You will gain an understanding of how the birthing body works in perfect harmony--as it was designed to--when your body is sufficiently relaxed.  You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation, and how to use your natural birthing instincts for a gentle, comfortable birthing.

When you have your baby with
HypnoBirthing®, you will not be in a trance or asleep.  You will be in good spirits, able to have a conversation. You will be deeply relaxed--similar to the experience of deep focus when you are engrossed in a task or staring into a fire.  You will be awake and aware throughout, and fully in control.  You will be aware of your body's surges, but because you are so relaxed, you don't feel the resistance that fear and tension breed.

Why choose HypnoBirthing®- The Mongan Method?  Why choose a 5 session course in a classroom?

Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are very effective tools. For you to be
able to use them when you are in labor is an acquired skill that needs to
be learned gradually in stages and practiced in between sessions. This
ensures that you have the time to develop the conditioned responses that
make HypnoBirthingR The Mongan Method so successful. There is no short cut,
and this is why we teach our course over 5 sessions.

Learning HypnoBirthingR over a day or weekend does not work as effectively to
absorb and remember the techniques. The brain and body memory have a limited
learning capacity, especially in pregnancy! It is for this reason that
HypnoBirthingR is taught most effectively in 5 sessions.

This classroom course also allows the time to explore your feelings, relax with your
partner, and to resolve and release any anxieties that may arise. We like
to work with you personally and to follow your progress, so that we can
ensure that you are fully ready, relaxed, and confident as you approach the
birth of your baby.
