The Mongan Method
"HypnoBirthing® is a unique method of relaxed, childbirth education enhanced by self‑hypnosis and guided imagery techniques that allow women to use their natural abilities to bring about safer, easier, and more comfortable birthing". HypnoBirthing® teaches women how to have a calm, gentle birth using deep relaxation, breathing, and visualization techniques. The relaxation techniques taught in HypnoBirthing® are perfect for parents looking for a natural or medicated childbirth. Teaching you how to reduce stress, be relaxed, and stay calm makes HypnoBirthing® an excellent choice no matter your desired childbirth experience.
