The Original Mongan Method

It is 30 years since Marie 'Mickey' Mongan taught her first HypnoBirthing class to her daughter and a friend.  Her teaching was based on her reading of 'Childbirth without Fear' by Dr Grantley Dick-Read, a British obstetrician and a leading advocate of natural childbirth and her own experience of birthing.  

Since then, this knowledge has spread across the globe and is taught in more than 46 countries.  


You will learn

  • How to achieve a safer, easier, more comfortable birth
  • Techniques of deep relaxation to help you eliminate fear and tension
  • How your body is designed to nurture and birth your baby with ease and comfort
  • To create your body's own natural relaxant for natural pain relief
  • How you and your birthing companion can create a birthing environment that is calm, serene and joyful
  • Gentle birthing techniques to reduce your chance of tearing



'When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change'

Marie Mongan

The course is designed to empower you with knowledge and understanding of your own body and the natural processes of birth.

There may be special circumstances that mean additional support is needed or that a Caesarean section, planned or not, is the best choice for you and your baby. The skills you learn in this course will be useful for whatever turn your birthing takes. 

Read Hannah's story for a fantastic example of this.



Who is the course for?

Anyone who is having a baby. 

Everyone who is having a baby. 

For those wanting to do just one course, this is the one for you.

For those wanting a more in depth opportunity to learn and practice HypnoBirthing than can be taught in other antenatal courses, this works for you.

For those who are sceptical about the utility of HypnoBirthing, this is still for you.

For your first baby or your fifth, HypnoBirthing works.
