Why become a HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method Practitioner
Becoming a HypnoBirthing® practitioner will add a whole new dimension to your life. Today, more than ever before, people are attracted to the HypnoBirthing® Practitioner Certification Program because of the satisfaction that teaching this program and working with young families is bringing into their lives. An even greater attraction for practitioners is seeing the impact that the HypnoBirthing® philosophy of calm and gentle birthing is having on a large majority of low-risk women who are coming to realize that birth is about them and their babies. Through weekly pre-natal classes, instructors are helping families to reclaim birth as their own.
HypnoBirthing® gives women the confidence to birth, free of any unnecessary interventions that can move the experience out of the realm of normal and thrust it into the arena of medicalization. Practitioners who were, or are, midwives, talk about the feeling of fulfillment that they have in attending births where empowered women trust birth and trust the female human body to be able to birth normally and with ease. Doulas revel in the fact that they are able to leave births on a natural high that remains with them for hours, and sometimes days. Mothers who birthed with HypnoBirthing® broadcast the joy and accomplishment they feel, and they seem compelled to teach these skills to as many people as will listen. Doctors who respect families and the miracle of birth are happy to find the rational means of attending births, rather than managing births.
The work is of the founder and director , Marie.F. Mongan, aka Mickey who authored the book , HypnoBirthing,The Mongan Method (third edition) who created a programme that became a household name around the world. So much so that the name ‘hypnobirthing’ has been accepted as a generic term for natural birth using hypnosis.
We could fill pages with the many reasons that practitioners give for having become affiliated with HypnoBirthing®, but it all comes down to the HypnoBirthing® belief that birth is natural, normal, and healthy, and that women were created to conceive, nurture and birth babies. Birth is intended to be experienced with dignity and reverence. Practitioners are inspired to carry this message to birthing families in 76 countries of the world.
