Parenting brings to mind a picture of a peaceful and serene mother-child bond. Childbirth however brings up visions of pain and writhing as a mother brings forth a new arrival into the world. Popular culture and direct anecdotes from mothers reiterate this impression So much so that childbirth is one of the most dreaded experiences for a woman. Childbirth is a natural process and is not even unique to human kind. We have built so many mental visions and practices that childbirth is seen as difficult. But this does not have to be the case. We have a collective wisdom of thousands of years and by capturing this wisdom, childbirth can return to its place as a simple, natural process period.HypnoBirthing® helps do just that. HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method – is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education, enhanced by self-hypnosis techniques.

HypnoBirthing® prepares women to use their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing. The method places the right emphasis on pregnancy and childbirth, as well as on pre-birth parenting and the consciousness of the pre-born baby. As a birthing method, HypnoBirthing® is new age but at the same time is also encapsulated grandma’s wisdom. HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method was developed by Marie Mongan in the USA for her daughter and friends in the 80s. In the 50s, Marie Mongan was deeply influenced by the theories of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read an English Physician. Dr. Dick-Read believed that fear and tension was a major factor for labour pain and that the pain could be reduced if fear and tension could be controlled. She employed these theories in her own childbirth experience and found that childbirth was not something to be feared but could be a natural and calm experience. In 1989, Marie Mongan published ‘HypnoBirthing® – a celebration of life’ the bible of HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method.
Simply put, HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method prepares you to be free of tension and pain during childbirth.
