Safer, Easier, More Comfortable Birthing in the Way That Most Mirrors Nature
 
 
Have you chosen to experience the benefits of a natural, drug free childbirth?  Nurses and doctors are becoming increasingly aware of the advantages of using hypnosis.  You will always have the ability to use anesthesia if you desire, but most doctors and nurses report that, even when requested, much less is needed than when hypnosis is not used.  HypnoBirthing® moms and their babies feel better, and are more alert for the experience.  Ask your doctor about how avoiding chemical anesthesia or using much less, aids in recovery for the new mother and her infant.


HypnoBirthing®  is as much a philosophy as it is a technique. The HypnoBirthing®  concept is not new to obstetrics and gynecology, but rather a "rebirth" of the philosophy of birthing as it existed thousands of years ago, and recaptured in the work of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, an English obstetrician, who first forwarded the concept of natural birthing in the 1920s. The Mongan Method teaches you that in the absence of fear and tension, severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labor.

Throughout the world, HypnoBirthing® instructors successfully teach women and their birthing partners relaxation techniques that eliminate the fear-tension-pain syndrome which results in a more joyful, shared childbirth experience.  In the absence of fear and tension, severe pain doesn't have to accompany labor.  If, during your pregnancy, you learn relaxation techniques to eliminate fear, tension and pain you can experience childbirth awake and alert, relaxed, mentally, physically and emotionally. 

HypnoBirthing® is an alternative to manage birthing your child without the use of drugs or Lamaze. Hypnosis has been approved by the American Medial Association (AMA) for medical procedures, including the reduction or elimination of pain.  I will help you make your doctor aware of the HypnoBirthing® process, so that your obstetrician/gynecologist can effortlessly allow for the process to make your experience as safe and painless as possible.  Becoming a mother has never been easier or safer!

Achieve birth fulfillment awake and alert... 
in a totally relaxed state of mind and body

The Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing® Advantages

  • A safer birthing for mother and baby
  • Shorter, more comfortable birthing
  • A special, integral role for Birthing Companion
  • Fewer incidences of need for medication
  • An awake, refreshed, and energized birthing mother
  • A better outcome for mother and baby
  • A calm, peaceful birthing environment
  • Good natured babies who are better sleepers and eaters
  • Happy parents who experience a serene, joyful birthing rather than a tense, stressful ordeal
The Benefits of Hypnosis/Self Hypnosis During Pregnancy and Childbirth:
  • The encouragement and reinforcement of good nutrition habits and weight control 
  • Shielding yourself and your baby from stress by relaxing the mind and body
  • Better sleep during pregnancy 
  • Hypnotic pain control 
  • Spiritual bonding meditations for mother and child 
  • Post partum adjustment 
  • Release of fear/pain programming 
In your HypnoBirthing® class, you will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony--as they were designed to--when your body is sufficiently relaxed. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation, free of the resistance that fear creates, and you will learn to use your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable birthing.

Best begun about half way through the pregnancy, the mother is taught  self hypnosis.  This technique allows the mother to greatly alleviate the discomfort of the natural process of contractions. During the rest of the pregnancy the mother must practice these techniques so that she will remain comfortable and at ease when it is time for the baby to be delivered. 

Hypnotic programming, post hypnotic suggestions and the daily practice of self-hypnosis will allow you to be relaxed and in good spirits during the childbirth experience.  You'll be relaxed, but fully in control.  You will be aware of your body's surges; but because you have trained yourself to reach complete relaxation, you will be able to determine the degree to which you will feel the surges. You can experience childbirth in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear and tension.  It is fear and tension that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to. In this calm state your body's natural anesthesia, endorphins, replace the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.  Learn more about hypnosis and childbirth... you have nothing to lose but fear and discomfort!
