As a pregnant mumma I wanted and desired to feel confident in my preparation for childbirth. I wanted a birth experience that is calm and safe and that I felt I was in control of my decisions for the birth of my baby.
I also wanted support for my partner, a tool kit that he could use at each stage I moved through as I birthed my children.
HypnoBirthing® provided me the opportunity for a calm, connected and gentle birth experience. It can for you as well!
HypnoBirthing® is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. HypnoBirthing® teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner.
HypnoBirthing® the Mongan Method is a simple, straightforward childbirth education program with over 25 years of proven results and many, many success stories.
Founded by Marie Mongan in 1989, HypnoBirthing® teaches women and their partners to reconnect with their natural ability to birth, free from fear. With certified educators in 45 countries around the world, HypnoBirthing® the Mongan Method empowers and educates birthing couples over a comprehensive five week, antenatal course.
You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.
HypnoBirthing® helps women to become empowered by developing an awareness of the instinctive birthing capability of their bodies. It greatly reduces the pain of labor and childbirth; frequently eliminates the need for drugs; reduces the need for caesarian surgery or other doctor-controlled birth interventions; and it also shortens birthing and recovery time, allowing for better and earlier bonding with the baby, which has been proven to be vital to the mother-child bond. What’s more, parents report that their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven’t experienced birth trauma.
So, why is “birth” such a traumatic event for so many women?
Currently in Australia:
-1:3 births are via c/s.
-1:4 births are via induction.
-1:3 woman describe their births as traumatic and 1:4 first time mums suffer major physical damage as a result of their births.
1:7 new mums are now diagnosed with PND
1:10 dads struggle with PND post a traumatic birth experience.
These experiences leave a long lasting impact on a woman’s physical and mental health, their ability to bond with their bubba, and relationships with their partner, family and friends post birth.
Sadly our culture teaches women to fear birth as a painful and unsettling experience. Fear causes three physical reactions in the body tightening of the muscles, reduced blood flow to the birthing muscles, and the release of certain hormones which increase the pain and discomfort of childbirth.
HypnoBirthing® Child Birth Antenatal Classes are a simple, straightforward program, thoughtfully developed over the years to remind mothers of the simplicity of birth itself. Just as the majority of birthing women do not need interventions and procedures for safe and healthy birth, they do not need a complex set of exercises and scripts to prepare themselves for peaceful, calm and comfortable birthing.
The birthing body and the baby know just what to do. HypnoBirthing® is designed to teach women to trust in Nature’s way of birth and to relax and let their bodies do what is needed. By practising a few key techniques, mothers program their minds and condition their bodies to birth easily. When it comes to programming and conditioning, variety is not necessarily a good thing. Repetition is what gets the best result.
You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing® films showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome.
HypnoBirthing® teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.
HypnoBirthing® will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts. With HypnoBirthing®, you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.
