HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method

What is HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method?

The HypnoBirthing philosophy is based on the belief that a healthy woman carrying a healthy baby and having a healthy pregnancy, who is properly prepared, is able to have a comfortable and gentle birthing. Through a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations, and education, HypnoBirthing returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in safety and with ease.

The advantages 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 labor, leaving the mother fresh, awake, and energized as she brings her baby into the world

  • Shortens the thinning and opening phase of labor 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 risk of pelvic floor damage)

  • The birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker

  • Babies are better adjusted and happier, resulting in better eating and sleeping routines

  • Brings mother, baby and birthing companion together in a wonderful bonding experience

  • Special breathing almost entirely eliminates postnatal discomfort and 'baby blues'

  • Mothers don't run the risk of hyperventilating from shallow breathing

  • Birthing is returned to the safe, beautiful, peaceful experience 

How HypnoBirthing® classes are taught?

  • The course consists of 5 live sessions, each 2,5 hour long

  • The classes are spread week apart to allow for integrating new techniques in every day life, and to be able to deepen the practice while preparing for labor

  • The course is meant for a mother to-be and her birthing companion(s), and the price of the course covers both (all) 

When can you start the course?

  • As early in your pregnancy as you wish. The tools which you learn will benefit your entire pregnancy, not only your labor. If you do decide to go for an early start, of the course we can also plan for a recap class closer to your 'due month' 

  • Not later than 5 weeks before your due month to allow for 5 sessions, one every week

What is the cancellation policy?

If you cancel less than four weeks before the start of the course then no refund will be given. However, under exceptional circumstances, we can offer a full refund at any point up until the course begins. After you have attended the first class, no refunds will be offered.

Why should you do a HypnoBirthing course?

"Because it works, it's that simple. The course combines so many tools and tricks, that it is very hard to find a person that would step out of the course without finding at least few that would stick. My role is to present to you the opportunities, and find the ways to incorporate what you like most in your daily routine. This way when you find yourself on that special day, you know exactly what to do, feel more at ease, in charge, and totally ready to meet your baby.


There is no magic or big secrets revealed, it is about bringing out what is already in you, but sometimes we simply need that bit of help to start seeing it ourselves."
