Empowering women and their birth companions to create positive birth experiences
A very big congratulations to you on your pregnancy. It really is the most precious gift to be given - and I am very excited for you that you are looking into HypnoBirthing® as an option because it is a journey that needs extra special care.
If you have any fear about your birthing day, then this is the course for you. This course is all about women having calm, beautiful and positive births.
HypnoBirthing guides to help you to experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.
HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method is as much a 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 and as it was recaptured in the work of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, an English obstetrician, who, in the 1920s, was one of the first to forward the concept of natural birthing. The method teaches you that, in the absence of fear and tension, or special medical circumstances, severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labor.
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 and you trust birth. 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 birth.
When you have your baby with HypnoBirthing®, you will not be in a trance or asleep. What you will experience is similar to the daydreaming, or focusing, that occurs when you are engrossed in a book or a movie or staring into a fire.
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; but because you will have trained yourself to reach complete relaxation, you will be able to determine the degree and the manner in which you will feel the surges. You will experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.

Also included is the HypnoBirthing Book and Rainbow MP3 plus a parent handout spiral
There is no extra fee for birth companions. This is a program for women and their birthing companions (be that partner, husband, mother, sister, friend, doula etc.). It is so important for women to have someone to support their gentle birth wishes that they can trust and rely on. This program gives birth companions a wonderful role, being able to know where you are at and what you will need.
The earlier you start the course the better, as it gives you lots of time to practice all the techniques I teach you. I usually recommend that couples start the course from 20 - 34 weeks pregnant.
I am so thrilled to be able to share this wonderful journey with other women, and to really help women lose the fear and rediscover their natural birthing instinct. I would love the opportunity to be invited to be part of your birth journey, and to teach you this very gentle method of birthing.
Please feel free to give me a call at any time, and if you would like to go ahead with the next group course, just let me know, and I can forward you a registration form, or if you want to do a private course, we can have a look at dates that suit you.
"My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a truly safe, comfortable, and satisfying birthing for herself and her baby."
