Recommending your Techniques
"I continue to use the relaxation techniques I've learnt now that I am the parent of two small children."
"Thank you again - I will be recommending your techniques to my family, friends, and hopefully one day my own daughter."
"I love our five year old daughter Rylee to pieces, but my birthing experience with her was so traumatic and horrendous... after hypnobirthing... the birth of our son Nash couldn’t have been more different; a joyful, positive experience, a complete polar opposite to five years ago."
The many advantages of HypnoBirthing
Did you know…
you could have a relaxed, peaceful, welcoming natural birth experience for you and your baby?
HypnoBirthing® is the best way to make it happen.
By taking the fear out of childbirth, HypnoBirthing® restores women’s faith in their own natural power to give birth. That way they experience more ease, less pain, and less medical intervention.
Bringing a life into this world is meant to be an intimate and beautiful event.
Thanks to this amazing program you can learn the art and joy of birthing without drugs, and with much less pain. (Many women birth without any pain!)
The unique advantages of HypnoBirthing®
“We believe that every woman has within her
the power to call upon her natural instincts
to bring about the best possible birthing
for her baby and herself.”
– Marie Mongan
Founded in 1989 by Marie Mongan, HypnoBirthing® childbirth education classes have been helping thousands of women in 45 countries around the world to birth gently, safely and comfortably.
HypnoBirthing® offers advantages to all mothers, whether they birth in hospitals, birthing centers or at home with professional midwives. HypnoBirthing® classes are empowering women across the globe to birth THEIR way – with dignity and joy.
The health and safety of normal mothers and their healthy babies are far better assured when the body’s own natural physiology is allowed to unfold in childbirth. (Read the page, Reasons to have a natural birth for more information.)
Many HypnoBirthing® moms have the natural birth they’ve always wanted,
without the pain they’ve always feared!
