What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method, is a philosophy and a program that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentleness, calm and joy and that pain does not need to be a part of birthing when a woman is properly prepared mentally, physically, and spiritually, and trusts her birthing body.
HypnoBirthing® eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain cycle and offers tools such as deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualizations, affirmations, and education, in order to give mom the confidence and peace necessary to birth her baby safely and with ease.
What will I learn from HypnoBirthing?
You will learn techniques for a safe, shorter, and more comfortable birthing through affirmations, guided imagery, visualization, and special breathing.
You will learn how to be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.
You will learn relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques to eliminate the fear of the unknown and to eliminate tension that causes long labors and suffering, replacing it with confidence, calm and comfort.
You will learn an understanding of the body’s natural process during labor, how to create your own natural anesthesia, and how to work with your body instead of against it.
You will learn how the different stages of labor require different levels of deep relaxation.
