You are at the Official HypnoBirthing International (Australian Division) website. If you are an expectant parent and are looking to take a class, then you can learn about the process here: Getting Started with HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method.
However, if you’re new to the concept of HypnoBirthing, please read on…
HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method is as much a philosophy as a technique. The concept of HypnoBirthing is not new, but rather a ‘rebirth’ of the philosophy of birthing as it existed thousands of years ago, and as it was recaptured in the work of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, an English Obstetrician, who in the 1920’s was one of the first to forward the concept of natural birthing. The method teaches you that, in the absence of fear and tension, or special medical circumstances, severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labour.
If you choose to add a HypnoBirthing Class to your pre-natal care and education, you will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles CAN work in perfect harmony, as they were designed to – when you are sufficiently relaxed and you trust birth. You will learn how to achieve this kind of relaxation, free of the resistance that fear creates, and you will use your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable birth.
In our quest to ensure that every Australian woman has the opportunity to experience a positive birth experience, HypnoBirthing International Institute are proud to announce that we have in excess of 190 Gold Seal Certified HypnoBirthing Educators across Australia (and this number is growing weekly) – thanks to regular training courses and a passionate steering committee of dedicated HypnoBirthing Professionals.
“When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change” – Marie F. Mongan
The Woman who started our journey to positive birth experiences, was Marie Mongan (aka Mickey), an award-winning hypnotherapist and counselor. Her comprehensive birthing education program ‘The Mongan Method’ offers women and their partners opportunities to explore their choices and develop the decision-making skills necessary to achieve their birthing goals.
