HypnoBirthing ® The Mongan Method

The Gold Standard of Birthing with Hypnosis

Helping women to develop the art and joy of rediscovering their natural birthing instinct

While teaching mothers and birth companions techniques for safe and satisfying birthing through guided imagery, visualization, and special breathing.

For most of their lives, women have been inundated with the negative stories of other women’s birth experiences. Everyone, from their mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, and even strangers, wants to tell them the horrors of giving birth. They have been conditioned to believe that excruciating pain is associated with birth; and because of this, women today hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth.

This extreme fear causes their bodies to become tense, and that tension often prevents them from easily performing the normal, physiological function of birth. The result? -exactly what they feared most–long, painful, disappointing births.

People who are drawn to HypnoBirthing® have long been searching for a way that helps women give birth as calmly, safely, and gently as possible. Until HypnoBirthing ® was founded, it seemed almost unattainable.

Through a very simple program of self-hypnosis and education, women learn to release emotions tied to fear-based stories and misinformation, and they are helped to see birth as normal. They learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle
way that Nature intended.


Sorry for any inconvenience

HypnoBirthing ® is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. This amazing program teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. You will learn how to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen, or even eliminate, discomfort and the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, Nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it
does with all animal mothers in Nature.

You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing ® films, showing laboring mothers, awake, alert and in good humor as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the fear- Tension- Pain Syndrome.

HypnoBirthing® teaches you through self-hypnosis, special breathing, and visualization, HypnoBirthing ® teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and
unyielding muscles.

HypnoBirthing ® will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts. With HypnoBirthing ®, you will not be in a trance or a sleep state. You will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.
