The Mongan Method
Is HypnoBirthing for me?
First things first: No, it is not a crystal ball being dangled in front of your eyes while I tell you to sneeze your baby out.
And I say this from a place of professionalism: I recently completed my training under the HypnoBirthing Institute of New Zealand and am now a qualified HynoBirthing Educator.
The course I teach is a comprehensive childbirth education program that educates and empowers couples for a positive, calm and stress-free birthing experience, regardless of how, where and with whom they are planning on birthing.
It provides couples with education, tools and techniques to help ensure they are on track for the best possible birth outcome, and to experience birth without fear.
Sound simple? Well it is. It does require time and effort though.
Couples learn how to prepare their mind and body with special breathing techniques, deep relaxation, visualisation and a positive mindset. It is a program that considers the psychological as well as the physical well-being of the mother, her birth partner and the newborn. It allows parents to approach birth and parenting knowing their options, making informed choices and confident to take control to ensure they achieve the most positive birth, no matter what turn their birthing takes.
Classes consist of five 2.5hr sessions and are generally run over five weeks. Each class has a maximum of six couples so early registration is recommended. As part of the course, couples receive a copy of the HypnoBirthing® book, 4 relaxation recordings and lots of handouts. Private sessions can also be arranged.
The techniques you will learn from my classes require a lot of practice and commitment for the best possible outcome.
I look forward to helping you on your way to a calm, stress-free birth.
