HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method

“My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a truly safe, comfortable, and satisfying birthing for herself and her baby.”

Know This First

For the Mother-To-Be & Birthing Companion

When you are 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 mothers in nature.

HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method

Easier, safer, more comfortable birthing

What is HypnoBirthing® ?

Is a tried and proven method that guides and prepares a woman in giving birth in a peaceful and extraordinarily beautiful manner.

It is a program that considers the psychological, as well as the physical, well-being of the mother, her birth partner, and the newborn, independent of context, whether that be in the quiet of a home, a hospital, or a birth center.

The Program

It'll teaches you to release fear and to trust your body’s ability to birth instinctively.

You and you birth companion will learn:

  • Special breathing techniques,
  • Relaxation,
  • Visualization,
  • Meditative practice,
  • Attention to nutrition
  • Positive body toning

Proven Benefits of HypnoBirthing:

  • Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birthing.
  • Reduces, often eliminates the need for chemical anesthesia, episiotomy, and other interventions.
  • Lessens fatigue during labour, leaving the mother fresh, awake, and energized as she brings her baby into the world.
  • Shortens the thinning and opening phase of labour by hours and allows the birthing mother to utilize the natural pulsations of her body to breathe her baby down to the crowning stage, rather than pushing for a long, exhausting period.
  • Reduces the risk of pelvic floor damage.
  • Brings the mother, the baby, and the birthing partner together in a wonderful prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal bonding experience.
  • The birthing partner is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker.
  • Gentle birth leads to easier emotional and physical post-partum recovery.
  • Babies are better adjusted and happier.
  • Birthing is returned to the safe, beautiful, peaceful experience that nature intended

What You Will Learn in HypnoBirthing® Classes

The classes are taught in a format of five, 2 1/2-hour classes.

In your preferred language ( Portuguese or English).

And You can choose between private or group classes.

When is the best time to start learning HypnoBirthing ?

There’s not a straight rule about the ‘best time’ for learning hypnobirthing, as it all depends on your own personal circumstances and preferences.

However, somewhere between 20-34 weeks is ideal, as the success of the course is strongly linked to how much practice you do.
Your birth companion should also attend all classes as he/she is a very important part of Hypnobirthing achievement as it helps build a strong relationship with the child and yourself before, during and after birth.

Positive Birth

You can also combine my Doula and HypnoBirthing services as a part of your holistic birth experience. Doula clients get 10% discount on the Hypnobirthing group lessons ( online groups).

A truly empowering birth is achieved through proper prenatal preparation and strong postnatal support.
Therefore, I am here to support you and birth companion in creating a positive birth experience so that you can give your baby a welcome that is calm, gentle, and safe.
