What is HypnoBirthing®?
I teach HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method. HypnoBirthing® is a as much a philosophy as it is a technique. It is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy. When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally and spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy, birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable, and often even pain-free manner. Through this program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations and education, HypnoBirthing® returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in safety and with ease.
Advantages of HypnoBirthing®:
-Reduces, often eliminates, the need for chemical anesthesia, episiotomy and other interventions
-Lessens fatigue during labor, leaving the mother fresh, awake & energized
-Shortens the thinning and opening phase of labor
-Reduces risk of pelvic floor damage
-Allows the birthing partner to be an integral part of birthing, not an onlooker
-Brings mother, baby and birthing companion together in a wonderful prenatal, perinatal and postnatal bonding experience
-Birthing is returned to a safe, beautiful, peaceful experience as intended”
