HypnoBirthing® has gained momentum around the globe as a positive and empowering method of childbirth. Here's why: HypnoBirthing helps women to become empowered by developing an awareness of the instinctive birthing capability of their bodies. It greatly reduces the pain of labor and childbirth; frequently eliminates the need for drugs; reduces the need for caesarian surgery or other doctor-controlled birth interventions; and it also shortens birthing and recovery time, allowing for better and earlier bonding with the baby, which has been proven to be vital to the mother-child bond. What's more, parents report that their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven't experienced birth trauma. HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience. In this book she shows women how the Mongan Method works and how parents they can take control of the greatest and most important event of their lives. So, why is birth such a traumatic event for so many women? And why do more than 40% of births now end in caesarian section, the highest percentage in history? The answer is simple: because our culture teaches women to fear birth as a painful and unsettling experience. Fear causes three physical reactions in the body—tightening of the muscles, reduced blood flow to the birthing muscles, and the release of certain hormones—which increase the pain and discomfort of childbirth. This is not hocus-pocus this is science.

5 Week Step by Step Guide to Experience an Empowered, Natural, Easy and Pain Free Birth. This course reveals the tools and knowledge you need to have a fulfilling birth, with little to no pain. All of these you can do in the comfort of your own home and at your own pace. The Hypnobirthing Home Study Course is a 5 week complete birth education course. You can be fully prepared for your best possible birth experience. There is no need to attend any other Hypnobirthing or birth preparation class, as this is a course covers natural birthing, alternative options and the best interventions. So no matter what path your birth ends up taking, you will be fully prepared, confident, calm and in control. The course is a 5 week program, yet you can work as fast or a slow through the material as you need. This manual is to accompany eight CD/MP3 Hypnobirthing Home Study Course Albums. However it is not essential to have these albums to gain benefit from the manual. With Hypnobirthing Home Study Course, your birthing dream is not just possible, it is entirely likely! Over the six years, we have collected statistics on birthing outcomes. Over 85% of Hypnobirthing Home Study Course mothers birthed naturally and easily, with most saying that they were entirely comfortable throughout the birth and didn’t even think of asking for pain medication. This hypnobirthing course will help you prepare positively for your amazing birth. It will help you embrace and understand the impact that your thoughts and fears can have on your experiences, specifically with your birth experience. This course will help you learn how to clear the path of obstacles and hurdles, and you will free yourself (predominantly your thoughts). Yes, you will achieve such freedom that when the time comes, your mind will no longer interfere with the already setup bodily functions of giving birth. I challenge you to take this home study course with an open mind, and allow yourself to just entertain the notion that birth is meant to be natural, normal and safe. Most importantly, the most empowering and fulfilling experience in your life will be this birth, and it will stay with you for the rest of your existence. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could ensure that we are more likely to have the emotional highs at birth rather than the lows with our birthing day? Wouldn’t it be lovely to remember that such a day is one filled with joy, peace and comfort? You are reading these words because you have decided to give the best possible birth experience for you and your baby. You are creating a conscious choice to select positive and empowered memories for your birth, and these glorious memories will last a lifetime and become the most treasured of your experiences. By the end of the course, you will look forward to the birthing day or due date with glee and enthusiasm. Your confidence in a successful birthing will be a total transformation from fear to fulfilment. And, of course, that 85% is now securely within your grasp. Importantly, if your birth happens to fall within the 15%, you now find it easy to be calm and explore your options and make the best possible decision. No matter what happens, you are empowered in your birthing choices. Hypnobirthing Hub Home Study Course goes to great lengths to clearly explain and recommend which medical choice is best for each birth situation. All I ask is that you be willing to open your mind and your heart to this transformational birthing method. Allow its intuitive truth to resonate deeply within you.

"Move over, Lamaze. HypnoBirthers say their form of deep relaxation takes the panting and pain out of labor." -Time Magazine HypnoBirthing®: A Celebration of Life Childbirth is not something to be feared; it is a natural expression of life. With HypnoBirthing, your pregnancy and childbirth will become the gentle, life-affirming process it was meant to be. In this easy-to-understand guide, HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan explodes the myth of pain as a natural accompaniment to birth. She proves through sound medical information that it is not our bodies but our culture that has made childbirth a moment of anguish, and that when we release the fear of birth, a fear that is keeping our bodies tense and closed, we will also release the pain. HypnoBirthing is nature, not manipulation. It relaxes the mind in order to let the body work as it is designed. The HypnoBirthing exercises—positive thinking, relaxation, visualization, breathing and physical preparation—will lead to a happy and comfortable pregnancy, even if you are currently unsure of an intervention-free birth. Your confidence, trust and happy anticipation will in turn lead to the peaceful, fulfilling and bonding birth that is your right as a mother. More than 10,000 happy couples have had their lives changed for the better by HypnoBirthing. More than 500 news organizations—including Good Morning America, The Today Show, Dateline, The Richard & Judy Show, Time, Newsweek, Parenting and Better Homes & Gardens—have joined the movement for better birthing. Why is HypnoBirthing changing the way the world gives birth? That's simple. Because it works.
