HypnoBirthing® is an easy to learn method utilizing deep relaxation and focused breathing patterns. It is as much of a philosophy as a technique. Marie Mongan developed the HypnoBirthing® program in 1989, putting together ideas that she had used in the birthing of her own children.
is based on the belief that when a mother is properly prepared for
birthing—physically, mentally, and emotionally—and fully relaxed, she can
experience the joy of birthing her baby more easily, often faster, and with less
discomfort. With most births requiring little or no intervention,
HypnoBirthing® moms use their skills to deeply relax,
and open to the power, passion and pleasure of birth.
