HypnoBirthing ® The Mongan method

Taking the birthing world by calm

HypnoBirthing® is something that I am very passionate about. It is such a life changing program that I wish all pregnant women would take the course!

Most people believe that child birth is such a painful event that you should naturally be afraid of the pain you are about to feel. For the majority of women, giving birth is not a medical event. It is a natural event that should be carried out as nature intended using the perfectly designed female body. Why would nature design the human body with the amazing feature of being able to create new life and then give it the flaw of making child birth painful? I can help you understand why people believe that childbirth will be painful, and then help you change those beliefs to make sure you have the most comfortable birth possible.

By taking the HypnoBirthing® course you will discover that you can have a comfortable birth and help your baby have a much smoother less stressful passage into this world. Most HypnoBirthing® babies show signs of being more content and less traumatised than from a standard birth using drugs and not using relaxed techniques.

Think about this: You will only give birth to this baby once, there are no re-runs, nobody can have this baby for you, it is a once in a life time experience! Let me help you have the birth of your dreams. You and your new baby deserve to have the most comfortable, natural birth possible.

The course is run over five 2 ½ hour sessions. During this time you will learn the following: -

  • How the female body works in perfect harmony just as nature intended.
  • How to take control of your body and work with your baby
  • How to self hypnotise yourself to bring you into a completely calm and relaxed state
  • Comfortable and practical birthing positions
  • How to gain the support from your care providers
  • Your birthing companion will learn how to support you and ensure that you get the birth of your dreams


Frequently asked questions

What is HypnoBirthing®?
HypnoBirthing is a natural safe technique used to eliminate the “Fear – Tension – Pain” syndrome as discovered by Dr Grantly Dick-Read. It uses self hypnosis and relaxation techniques to enable you to have the most comfortable birth possible

Will I be in control and aware of the birth?
You will be in full control during the whole birth. With HypnoBirthing® you will be fully aware of everything going on around you but you will be able to “tune out” the distractions.

Will it make the birth pain free?
There are many things that can affect a birth, some of which are outside our control.

HypnoBirthing® needs to be practised and the results will vary depending on your effort.

Approximately 65-70% of HypnoBirthing® mums find that they need no pain relief at all, they just feel pressure and no pain.

Around 20-25% only require a little gas and air.

The remaining 5-10% usually fall into the “special circumstances” category where medical intervention was needed such as being induced or caesarean, however even under these conditions mums still tell us that HypnoBirthing® really helped.

Remember – the aim of HypnoBirthing® is to help provide the most comfortable, relaxed, calm birth possible, just as nature intended

How much does it cost?
The course is run over five sessions of two and a half hour classes and will be held in small groups. The cost of the course is £300. Home visits and one to one sessions can be negotiated. Please contact me for details.

Is it completely safe?
Yes HypnoBirthing® is completely safe. It can actually help reduce the number of medical interventions as the baby is much calmer and less likely to need emergency assistance to hurry the baby along.

When should I start the class?
25-30 weeks is ideal because practise is required to achieve the best results. If you feel that you have left it too late please contact me as I may be able to arrange a quick course. Many people have benefited even by using a last minute fix!

Does my partner/husband have to attend the class?
Yes, your birthing partner is a vial part of the course as they will learn the techniques to guide you through your labour and to be your spokesperson to ensure that your birthplan is  followed to the letter.

Who is HypnoBirthing® suitable for?
HypnoBirthing® is suitable for first time mums and mums who’ve had kids before. Whether you are scared of birth; anxious because of a previous bad experience; or just want a natural, calmer, easier drug free birth then HypnoBirthing® is for you.

I’m afraid of being hypnotised
Please do not be afraid. Hypnosis is a beautiful state of relaxation. You are fully in control during hypnosis (you cannot be made to walk around like a chicken!!) and if any body suggested you did anything against your morals you would immediately come straight out of the hypnotic state.
