“My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a safe, satisfying birth for both her baby and herself—one she’ll not need to forget.”

Marie F. Mongan, 1999

What is HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method

HypnoBirthing® is a well-thought-out program of 5 lessons (2.5 hours per lesson) of childbirth education that covers not only what to expect in labour and birth, but also how to facilitate the natural process of birthing.


You will learn how to take charge of your birth so you can have the truly empowered birth you want!


In these classes we cover deep relaxation techniques, self-hypnosis techniques, breathing techniques, visualisations, affirmations and physiological knowledge and preparation.


The HypnoBirthing® Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing.  HypnoBirthing® teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or 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 other creatures.


You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing® videos showing labouring 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 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, you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.
