is not only a comprehensive learnable technique, but is a philosophy as
well: a philosophy which embraces childbirth as a normal, natural and
wondrous process for which a woman’s body is exquisitely designed. In
the absence of fear, participating in one of life’s most precious
miracles, the birth of one’s baby, can be free of pain, full of joy, and
demonstrate a quantum leap of love’s expression.
HypnoBirthing is a very specific series of techniques which have
been honed over the years by Marie Mongan, founder. She coined this term
and began teaching it in 1989 after years of struggling to get natural
birth accepted into hospitals. She is the first to say that she did not invent the concepts, as she credits Dr Grantly Dick-Read for his
pioneering early works in the ‘50’s, as well as acknowledging ancient
wisdom about birth which was somehow lost in the centuries.
All too frequently, pregnancy and birth are viewed and handled as a medical event, with intervention being the standard
rather than the exception, even when mother and child are both healthy.
Accepting the natural process of pregnancy and birthing dispels fears
which have been thrust upon us even by well-meaning family and friends.
HypnoBirthing assists us to lovingly release fear, and joyfully
accept our bodies’ incredible wisdom and capacity. In turn, the
practices of HypnoBirthing paves the path for absolutely beautiful
birthings to be experienced; your baby is welcomed into the world
peacefully and joyfully. What better beginning for you, your partner, and
