HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method- Private classes
HypnoBirthing® is a childbirth method that focuses on preparing parents for gentle birth. In HypnoBirthing® classes, you will learn proven techniques in a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, visualization, and self-hypnosis. All of these are designed to help you achieve a more comfortable birth. HypnoBirthing® encourages a calm, peaceful, and natural pregnancy, birth, and bonding experience for families.
Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are very effective tools. For you to be able to use them when you are in labour is an acquired skill, that needs to be learned gradually in stages and practised in between sessions. This ensures that you have the time to develop the conditioned responses that make HypnoBirthing the Mongan Method so successful. There is no short cut, and this why we teach our course over 5 sessions.
