"The more people have studied different methods of bringing up children the more they have come to the conclusion that what good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is the best after all."

(Benjamin Spock)

HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method

Have you ever noticed the difference between the way birth is portrayed in soap operas and the way it is seen to be in nature programs? Have you ever asked why we have to endure birth while other mammals simply experience it? In so many ways we have been trained to believe that giving birth is a medical procedure and we have forgotten that we are simply mammals with all the basic instincts needed to allow us to naturally birth our children.

Following the internationally renowned Mongan Method, HypnoBirthing teaches you how to relax your body and mind so deeply that you can allow your body to birth your baby for you, often free of pain. There are no weird and wonderful tricks. You simply become able to trust your body and to ‘dance’ with the instinctual birthing process while you feel a greater sense of personal control.

This training sets you up to enjoy one of the amazing experiences of your life while giving your baby a gentle and calm start in life.

HypnoBirthing™ is taught to you and your birthing partner (the father, a friend, your mum) in five fortnightly classes of 2.5 hours each. During these classes, you are taught how your mind works as you approach the birthing process and how to work with your body and mind using self-hypnosis and breathing techniques. Using these, and other, techniques, you are taught how and why childbirth doesn’t have to hurt! The longer you practise the HypnoBirthing Techniques for the greater the benefit to your experience of childbirth. However, HypnoBirthing can be of benefit at any stage of your pregnancy.
