"We believe that every woman has within her the power to call upon her natural instincts to bring about the best possible birthing for her baby and herself."

(Marie F. Mongan)


What is it?


HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth using self hypnosis techniques to help women use their natural instincts to have a safe, gentle and comfortable birthing.


It focuses on pregnancy and childbirth as well as pre birth bonding and the consciousness of

your pre born baby.

 It is a simple, straight forward program thoughtfully developed over the years to remind you of the simplicity of birth itself.

The majority of birthing women do not need interventions and procedures for a safe and healthy birth. The birthing body and baby know just what to do.


HypnoBirthing® is designed to teach women to trust in Nature’s way of birthing and to feel calm, confident and in control.



Introduction to HypnoBirthing® -Video

A great introduction to HypnoBirthing®, where it has come from and what it can achieve.  





How does it work?


HypnoBirthing® enables women to break the Fear – Tension – Pain cycle by teaching them to relax and connect with their birthing body.

It de-hypnotises them from any old conditioning and replaces it with positive beliefs and thoughts about birth and their bodies.

Hypnosis works by by-passing the critical conscious mind so that the subconscious mind can literally be reprogrammed to believe that birth will be comfortable, easy and joyful. By listening to the HypnoBirthing® CDs and practicing the techniques daily you will program your mind and condition your body to birth easily. You will also be teaching your body and mind to go quickly and easily into a very deep state of relaxation and to create your own natural anesthesia whenever and wherever you need it.



What are the benefits?


 A positive birth isn’t necessarily a pain free birth or a completely natural birth but one where a woman feels in control and respected.

HypnoBirthing® helps you to stay calm and relaxed whatever path your birthing takes and it also has some wonderful benefits, not just for mum but baby and birth companion as well.
