HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method is as much philosophy as it is a technique.
The concept of HypnoBirthing® is not new, but rather a ‘rebirth’ of the philosophy of birthing as it existed thousands of years ago. The method teaches you that in the absence of fear and tension, or special medical circumstances, the birthing body is free to carry out the work it was perfectly designed to do, allowing the birthing mom to work with her body and baby, resulting in a more comfortable, satisfying, and empowering experience.
You will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony when your body is sufficiently relaxed and you trust birth. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation free from fear, and as a result, you will be more in-tuned to and trusting of your baby and natural birthing instincts.
While using the techniques you learned in HypnoBirthing you will be conversant and in good spirits – totally relaxed, but fully in control. Awake throughout, you will be aware of your body’s surges and your baby’s progress. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxants, endorphins, replace the stress hormones that constrict uterine muscles, can cause pain, and slow labor. This natural flow of endorphins, along, with your ability to surrender, and support the natural energy of your birthing body, will enhance your ability to achieve the birth you desire.
