What is HypnoBirthing®?
|This easy to follow course teaches you to have an easier, comfortable and loving birth.
This is achieved by deeply relaxing your body so that it works the way it was designed to work, birthing the baby in safety and with ease. You will be also learning about the physiology of the birth process and preparing yourself with techniques such as relaxation, self-hypnosis, breathing and attitude/expectancy to experience the joy and magic of birth by creating positive attitude
"My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of truly safe, comfortable and satisfying birthing"
|The Mongan Method is as much a philosophy as it is a technique The concept of HypnoBirthing® is not new, but rather a "rebirth" of the philosophy of birthing as it existed thousands of years ago. It was rediscovered in the work of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read ( English obstetrician ), who in the 1920s, was one of the first to forward the concept of natural birthing.
Marie Mongan developed the HypnoBirthing® program in 1989, putting together ideas that she had used in the birthing of her own children. The method teaches you that, in the absence of fear and tension, or special medical circumstances, severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labour.
You will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony (as they were designed to) when your body is sufficiently relaxed and you trust birth. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation, free of the resistance that fear creates, and you will learn to use your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable birth.
When you have your baby with HypnoBirthing®, you will not be in a trance or a sleep. What you will experience is similar to the daydreaming, or focusing, that occurs when you are engrossed in a book or a movie or staring into a fire.
You will be conversant and in good spirits, totally relaxed and in full control. Awake throughout, you will be aware of your body's surges and your baby's progress; but because you will have trained yourself to reach complete relaxation, you will be able to determine the degree and the manner in which you will feel the surges. You will experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to.
In this calm state, your body's natural relaxant, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.
ACHIEVE BIRTH FULFILLMENT,
AWAKE AND ALERT,
IN A TOTALLY RELAXED STATE OF MIND AND BODY.
