HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method is a creative toolbox of knowledge and empowerment where we use natures most precious gifts to achieve your unique and desired birth goals. HypnoBirthing is also viewed as a philosophy that allows the mother to achieve a purely instinctive birth, empowering herself and baby through connecting mind and body. It is a creative toolbox of knowledge and empowerment for birth preparation and postpartum. It encompasses the psychological, spiritual and physical well being of both mother and baby. The outcome of using HypnoBirthing allows mother to baby to achieve not only the unique birthing goals to her but also for life. These empowering methods give a positive approach to the birthing environment, they involve deep relaxation, self hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualizations and affirmations to achieve a joyful safe and gentle birth.
In recent years birthing has been particularly led by patriarchal fashion and outdated practices that have come to make birth a rather unnecessarily unpleasant experience with needless interventions and families left with trauma that needs healing. Birth is something that should be celebrated, it should be a couples most greatest achievement and not their greatest fear. It is a sacred act of love that should be honoured, respected and achieved in joyful loving surroundings. HypnoBirthing is a truly magical tool that ignites our inner knowledge and strength allowing us the navigate through any challenges we may face with calm and confidence. I do personally believe knowledge is power!
HypnoBirthing is highly empowering for cesarean and can be used for any type of birth you are planning. This is an evidence based course that has been used and practiced for over 30 years with thousands of beautiful testimonials, videos and more. Its all about sharing the love and working together to achieve a beautiful, gentle birth and joyful life.
“How would you prepare for a Marathon? Would you get your mindset right? would you train? would you commit to the exercise regime and get your body ready to work at optimum level? Would you have a great team around you and to keep you going when you need a emotional support?”
This is how we can view birth – thinking about what is important to us as people but also as creative beings, what we value and the meaning of life and love.
I’m a HypnoBirthing Mum too!
HypnoBirthing gave me the opportunity to have a beautiful, calm and empowering birth in the freedom of my own home. It was my first birth but I knew exactly what I was doing, I trusted in my body and its ability to birth naturally. and I had advocated for myself, I had the amazing support of my loving husband and my beautiful friend Bethany. This invaluable, most precious experience gave me the drive and passion to learn more about HypnoBirthing and become an Educator so that I could share this gift with other parents on their magical life journey. I believe that love, equality, freedom an respect are paramount for mother and baby in achieving their desired birth. I have cherished these gifts from my birth and used them in my life going forward, it is more than just birth preparation but rather a gift to enjoy the this truly magical transformation in life.
“When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth with change”
Marie Mongan – Founder of HypnoBirthing
Birth Preparation is a very overlooked investment, it is so easy to buy material objects like a pram, other accessories and things we may enjoy for short periods of time. Speaking from experience as a HypnoBirthing Mother I truly see that this preparation also prepared me for my life going forward and imprinted on my memory for life along with all the tools I still use today. It allowed me to build a strong connected to myself, birth and truly honour becoming a mother but also evolved as a woman and equal being in this world. Taking this course for myself meant I could navigate easily around any obstacles and know my choices and honour my birthright, I believe becoming a mother is an enrichment program and therefore should have the necessary support, time to prepare, love and respect that it deserves.
