Certification for HypnoBirthing

The Mongan Method

HypnoBirthing teaches mothers and their birth companions techniques for safe and satisfying birthing through guided imagery, visualization and special breathing. HypnoBirthing® is returning birth to the beautiful, peaceful experience mother nature intended.

“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 Mongan, Founder HypnoBirthing®

HypnoBirthing Classes

HypnoBirthing is a rewarding, relaxing and stress free method of birthing, that allows mothers to experience the joys of birthing in an easier, more comfortable manner. Relaxation techniques are taught to mother and her birthing companion to eliminate the fear and tension that cause long labor and pain, replacing it with confidence, calm and comfort. HypnoBirthing® eliminates or greatly reduces the need for chemical anesthesia or pain drugs.

When having your baby with HypnoBirthing® what you will experience is similar to the daydreaming or focusing that occurs when you are engrossed in a good book or staring at a fire. You will be conversant and in good spirits; totally relaxed, but fully in control. You will be aware of your body’s contractions but will be able to determine the extent to which you feel the surge.

What my clients say about HypnoBirthing®

We so appreciate your helping us to choose to have a natural at-home birth. If you hadn’t come into our lives I’d be with a high risk OB and having a hospital birth. Our daughter wouldn’t have had a natural and welcoming birth if it wasn’t for you. Keep spreading your message and teaching because you really change lives!

Since your class, we have had two extremely successful hypnobirths…and we are going to get another opportunity to do another one. I’m expecting our 4th baby…due in January. I am so grateful for the knowledge that I learned from you during your classes! It changed my birthing experiences…and now labor is my favorite part of my entire pregnancy!

This class changed everything for me! My fear of giving birth had been so strong that I decided not to have children. As I got older the desire to have children prevailed but I was still frantic about giving birth and had planned on receiving all the drugs possible to make the process the most bearable in terms of fear and pain. I had read that Hypnobirthing takes the fear out of child birth – just the class for me! And not only that! It changed my whole perception on child birth. We decided on a home birth, the most amazing, profound and empowering experience of my/our life – so very peaceful and totally free of fear. Not only for myself but also for my husband. And the pain that supposedly is the worst you will ever encounter? Not true! The techniques we learned worked so well for both of us. We highly recommend this class – and we will take it again for our second child!
