HypnoBirthing The Mongan Method

HypnoBirthing allows you to experience birth in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of fear and tension.


Learn techniques to help you eliminate the fear and tension that cause pain in birthing.

Hypnosis is a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration - a state of mind and body in which we communicate suggestions to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind influences what we think, how we feel, and the choices we make. It can actually control pain.

There is no magic to achieving success with self-hypnosis. Almost anyone who chooses to can reach deep relaxation and redirected focus.

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 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. You will experience your birthing in an atmosphere of calm and relaxation, without the fear and tension that cause pain. Your body's natural anesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones that cause pain.

When it is time for you baby to be born, you will be fully awake and involved.

Some therapists are advertising "hypnobirthing", "hypno-birthing", "hypnobirth", "Hypno Birthing", or just "hypnosis for childbirth". Only practitioners certified by The HypnoBirthing ® Institute can provide the detailed, time-proven instruction that has helped thousands of women around the world have a calmer, easier, more comfortable birth. If you are seeking HypnoBirthing ® classes for labour and birthing, be sure that the person you have contacted has been trained and certified by The HypnoBirthing ® Institute.

What Parents are Saying

  • "How could I believe when I had gone through not one, but two long and excruciating labors? I was petrified. Then I found HypnoBirthing. This birth took 4 ½ hours. I was relaxed and comfortable all the way. It was wonderful!"
  • "I was with my wife for the birth of our first child. It was a bad experience for us. Most of the techniques we practiced from the other course just weren't there for us. HypnoBirthing was far more than we had even hoped for. Our daughter came into the world so easily and in such a calm atmosphere."
  • "I kept telling myself all I would feel is pressure - and it works! That's all I did feel. What a difference from my first labor!"
  • "I read of the advantages of self-hypnosis and relaxation in a magazine and set out to find a program that could teach me the method. I'm so happy I found HypnoBirthing! This was our first baby, and my active labor was only three hours from start to end. We were thrilled."
