With HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method, you’ll learn how to use your natural birthing instincts, free yourself from fears and negative emotions surrounding birthing and be aware and in full control as your body remains deeply relaxed.
HypnoBirthing® is both a philosophy and a technique that introduces hypnosis, a naturally induced state of relaxed concentration in which we communicate suggestions to our subconscious mind. This part of our mind influences what we think, how we feel and the choices we make. Almost anyone who chooses to can reach deep relaxation and redirect their focus. Birthing becomes a calm, relaxed experience, without the fear and tension that cause pain. The body’s natural anesthesia (endorphins) will replace the stress hormones and when it’s time for the baby to be born, the birthing person is empowered, confident and peaceful.

- Week 1: Building a positive expectancy
