what is hypnobirthing - the mongan method?

HypnoBirthing - The Mongan Method is a method of relaxed, natural childbirth education enhanced by self hypnosis techniques. HypnoBirthing encourages a calm, peaceful, and natural pregnancy, birth and bonding experience for families. The HypnoBirthing techniques allow women to use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, and more comfortable birthing experience. HypnoBirthing allows your birthing partner to fully participate in the birthing experience by leading the birthing mother through techniques which will allow her body to enjoy a calm and natural childbirth.

The hypnobirthing advantage:

  • Eliminates Fear-Tension-Pain before, during and after birthing

  • Eliminates or greatly reduces the need for chemical painkillers

  • Shortens the first stage of labor by several hours

  • Eliminates fatigue during labor, leaving the mother fresh, awake and with the energy for actual birthing

  • Eliminates the risk of hyperventilation from shallow breathing methods

  • Promotes special bonding of mother, baby and birthing partner

  • More rapid postnatal recovery

  • Create a more integral role for the birthing partner

  • Returns birthing to a beautiful, peaceful experience that nature intended
