What is HypnoBirthing®?
The Mongan Method
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 how to call upon your body’s own natural pain inhibitors and thus lessen or even eliminate discomfort and the need for medication. HypnoBirthing® allows your birthing companion to fully participate in the birth experience by leading the birthing mother through scripts and techniques which allow her body to enjoy a calm natural birth. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and 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® films showing laboring mothers, awake, alert and in good spirits as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the fear, tension and stress. HypnoBirthing® teaches you to release all prior programming about birth and how to trust and work with your body.
You will learn how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear that impedes your muscle activity. This instruction will teach you how to “breathe your baby” into the world without the violence of hard pushing.
With HypnoBirthing®, you will not be in a trance or a sleep state; instead you will be alert, focused and profoundly relaxed. HypnoBirthing® will teach you the art of using your body’s own natural instincts to birth your baby in the manner that most mirrors the way nature intended.
