"HypnoBirthing prepared us for the labor we'd planned, but most importantly, the part of labor that we did not plan... Welcoming our daughter's passage into the world has been the most profound and beautiful experience we've ever had." - Elsa

About the Class
HypnoBirthing® the Mongan Method will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts.
We will explore the history of obstetrics to understand why fear and pain are associated with birth. You will learn how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to be free of harmful emotions that lead to the Fear-Tension-Pain Cycle. You will understand the power of the mind-body connection and how to collaborate with your mind.
You will learn HypnoBirthing® techniques such as self-hypnosis, deep relaxation, breathing, affirmations, visualization, and knowledge of the birth process.
We will talk about practical tips for choosing your birth environment and caregiver, how to create your birth plan, movement, massage, and how to communicate well with your birth team.
You will leave feeling connected with your body and baby, knowledgable about the holistic stages of labor, empowered to have the birth experience that you want, and able to adapt as your birthing unfolds.
