Childbirth Education

The Original Hypnosis for Birth Program

The Marie Mongan Method

The HypnoBirthing® Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing.  HypnoBirthing® teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner.  You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication.  When a pregnant person is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.
You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing® films showing laboring people, awake, alert and in good humor as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome. 
HypnoBirthing® teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.
HypnoBirthing® will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts.  With HypnoBirthing®, you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.

Commonly asked questions:

When should I start classes?

Any time after your first trimester! This course is designed for pregnancy, labor, birth and gives your tools you can use for the rest of your life. The latest you'd want to start the class series is 33 weeks gestation since it's a 5 week course.

Does my partner need to attend? What if I don't have a partner?

Partners are encouraged to attend. If a partner can only attend a few classes, that is better than nothing, and the first class is especially important. No partner? No problem - feel free to bring any other support person, such as family, friend, doula, etc. 

Will I have a pain free birth?

No one can make any guarantees about the way your birth will unfold. HypnoBirthing classes greatly REDUCE the amount of "pain" you experience as well as transform the way you experience "pain" in labor. HypnoBirhthing students report using an epidural only 23% of the time compared to the national average of 71%.
