What is HypnoBirthing®?

HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method, is considered the “Gold Standard” of birthing with hypnosis. It is a childbirth education method that empowers women to achieve more gentle, natural births. It is both a philosophy and a set of tools for using self-hypnosis techniques and scripts to achieve a focused awareness and level of relaxation that allows for a much more comfortable, easy birth. With HypnoBirthing® you will not be in a trance or sleep state. You will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.

The course offers the following benefits:

  • Empowers parents with techniques to achieve a gentle, calm birth

  • Teaches deep levels of relaxation to eliminate the fear that causes tension and pain

  • Greatly reduces and often eliminates the need for chemical painkillers and drugs

  • Helps keep oxygen supplied to baby during birthing

  • Reduces and often eliminates fatigue during labor, leaving the mother alert, fresh, and with energy to bond with her baby following the birth

  • Gives the birthing companion an integral role in the birthing

  • Embraces the concept of pre-birth parenting

  • Teaches breathing techniques that allow a woman to gently breathe her baby into the world without the violence of hard, physical pushing
