HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. HypnoBirthing… This amazing program teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. Using self-hypnosis techniques allows women to access their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing. Emphasis is placed on pregnancy and childbirth, as well as on pre-birth parenting and the consciousness of the pre-born baby. As a birthing method, HypnoBirthing® is as new as tomorrow and as old as ancient times. It is presented in a series of five, 2 1/2-hour classes. Register Here!
