HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method

HypnoBirthing®-The Mongan Method is a popular alternative to help women through labor and delivery. This method can help reduce fear, anxiety and muscle tension, and it can help you focus your mind on something other than the pain your body is experiencing.

Beaumont offers HypnoBirthing®-The Mongan Method classes for pregnant women and their partners. This class teaches the mother and birth companion techniques for safe and satisfying birth through guided imagery, visualization, and special breathing.

Through a very simple program of self-hypnosis and education, women learn to release emotions tied to fear-based stories and misinformation. They are helped to see birth as normal and  learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way nature intended.

HypnoBirthing®-The Mongan Method techniques are useful in a number of life situations and will provide you with tools to help manage stress and discomfort.
