HypnoBirthing® - The Mongan Method is a childbirth method in which parents can achieve a calmer, gentler, and more peaceful birthing experience. During the course of five confidence-building classes you will learn how to release fear and work with your body so that the birth of your baby can be a beautiful, empowering, and positive experience. During the HypnoBirthing classes you will learn:
Powerful relaxation techniques
How your body and baby were designed to work together for a comfortable birthing experience
How the chemicals released due to anxiety, fear, and tension can inhibit the natural birthing process
How to create endorphines and avoid the negative effects of constricting fear-based hormones
How Do Birth Companions/Spouses/Dads fit into HypnoBirthing®? Birth Companions play a vital role in successful HypnoBirths. The Birth Companion should be someone you trust and feel comfortable with. It can be a spouse, the baby's father, your own mother, or a good friend. Birth Companions will attend all five of the HypnoBirthing classes to learn about natural childbirth and what to expect during pregnancy and birth. They will be given prompts and scripts to practice with you at home as you learn how to utilize the principles of self-hypnosis for deep relaxation. Birth companions will become empowered as they learn the many ways they can help advocate for your desired birth experience in any setting.
