HypnoBirthing® International – The Mongan Method
The gold standard for childbirth education
“When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth with change”
Marie Mongan – Founder of HypnoBirthing
Founded in 1989 by Marie Mongan, a master hypnotherapist, licensed counselor, and former dean of a woman’s college, HypnoBirthing has been recognized as a leader in birth education for 30 years. Mongan Method HypnoBirthing is taught in over 50 countries around the world and is continuing to grow. I am proud to be part of the HypnoBirthing movement where the natural laws of birth can be honoured and respected regardless the type of birth you are planning.
Birth is one of the most intimate and precious experiences of life and it is important to respect and protect this.
The HypnoBirthing course.
The HypnoBirthing® course will enable you and your partner/birth companions to work together, feeling truly connected.
