What is HypnoBirthing? 


HypnoBirthing International (The Mongan Method - named after founder Marie Mongan) is a birth education program that will give you the tools and information you need to have your best possible birth experience. 


Through a combination of education, breathing techniques, visualisations, affirmations, deep relaxation and hypnosis you will be empowered to approach your birthing day with calm, confidence and excitement and feel prepared to make informed choices for whatever turn your birthing takes.

Utilising the power of hypnosis to access the subconscious mind, HypnoBirthing dispels any myths and fears that may cause anxiety and negative expectations about birth. 


The 5 sessions have been specially designed in order to best prepare you for a gentle, calm and positive birth experience. This allows time to practice the techniques learnt each week, both in class and at home,  and an opportunity to reflect and then ask any questions that may come up. It's also a very special time to bond with your birth partner in the lead up to your baby's birth. 

You can start HypnoBirthing preparations from 20 weeks on and ideally no later than 34 weeks to ensure you have ample time to complete the 5 week course and practice the techniques prior to birth.
