Hypnobirthing® The Mongan Method is a philosophy as much as it is a technique. Marie Mongan, a hypnotherapist, used her experiences birthing her children and the theories of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read to develop the Hypnobirthing® program for her own daughter and friends. Word of mouth spread in regards to the success of these births and the program grew organically.

Dr. Grantly Dick-Read was an English Physician. His principles are the foundation of the National Childbirth Trust (NCT). Dr. Dick-Read holds the theory that fear and tension cause the pain associated with labor in about 95 percent of laboring women.

“There is no physiological function in the body that gives rise to pain in the normal course of health. In no other animal species is the process of birth apparently associated with any suffering, pain, or agony, except where pathology exists or in an unnatural state, such as captivity.”

The idea of releasing fear and worry and then replacing that space with powerful words and imagery help to train the subconscious mind for the task it is about to accomplish. The Hypnobirthing® Method is a complete childbirth class that provides space for couples to practice techniques, birth scenarios, and organize relaxation methods that can work for them as a unit.Hypnobirthing® uses deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations and childbirth education to create an easier, more joyful, comfortable, and often, even pain-free birth. Based on the belief that all babies should come into this world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy, the Hypnobirthing® philosophy allows a woman to use her natural birthing instincts to birth her baby in safety and with ease.
