HypnoBirthing® the Mongan Method is a philosophy and technique. It is based upon the thousands of years of birthing experience and the work of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, and English obstetrician who was one of the first to forward the concept of natural birthing. The method teaches that in the absence of fear and tension, or special medical circumstances, severe pain does not have to be a part of labor and birth.
Marie Mongan is the woman who started the HypnoBirthing business, based upon her experience as a hypnotist and her experience with birth. She is a hypnotherapist and had four children. Two of her births were entirely free of anesthesia at a time when it was unheard of, and her husband was by her side in both the labor room and the “delivery” room. She integrated birthing and hypnosis into a friendly relaxation for mother to have a most relaxed and focused birth experience, supported by her partner. She founded “Hypnobirthing® the Mongan way.”
HypnoBirth Training for couples is a series of 5 classes, each 2 ½ hours long. If you don’t get all the training before birth, get as many as you can. Your knowledge will make a difference in the type of birth and labor, mother and baby experience. The partner will have cues to help support mother and feel confident during the labor and birth process. This birth education will enhance what you already know.
