WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING®? AND WHY?
Natural birth - peaceful and gentle
Giving birth is the most natural and most wonderful experience! New life has been growing in your womb and the moment it is being born, when you hold your little one in your arms the first time, is one of natures miracles, so normal, so natural and yet so empowering, full of love and beauty. HypnoBirthing® helps to enjoy your birth experience in a peaceful, normal and natural way.
HypnoBirthing® itself is simple: it’s a return to mother nature and what she intended for birthing to be. It puts you back into contact with your body and puts your trust back into birth. Once you trust your body as a woman you can follow your instincts for birthing and have a totally normal and natural, calmer and more comfortable experience of birthing your baby.
As a birthing method, HypnoBirthing®, the Mongan Method, combines a set of tools including childbirth education, self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques as well as visualization and affirmations. All these tools are used to follow your most natural instincts for birthing.
HypnoBirthing® doesn't mean you'll be in trance or asleep. What you will experience is similar to daydreaming or focusing on a book or a movie or staring into a fire. You will be chatty and in good spirits - totally relaxed, but fully in control. You will always be aware of what is happening in your body and around you. Most importantly, you'll learn how to put yourself back in control of your birth and to follow your instincts as nature has intended it.
Because HypnoBirthing® is based on relaxation, it can also help if your birth needs intervention and it can also come into use in other parts of your life, especially after your baby arrives and parenthood starts, or any other situations where life challenges you.
HypnoBirthing® is a method for childbirth but as such emphasizes also on pregnancy and pre-birth parenting as well as on the consciousness of the pre-born baby, and the importance of bonding before and after birth.
Around the world, certified practitioners successfully teach HypnoBirthing® to women and their birthing companions. Trained educators are currently found throughout the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, Turkey and the United Kingdom and constantly growing.
