In class you will watch videos of women and companions birthing using the techniques and learn positions and techniques for relaxing, comfortable birthing. Partners will learn how to guide and support their partners during the birth process. Class covers the same content as standard prenatal classes: what your body does in labour, the stages of labour, when to go to the hospital or call your doctor/midwife, and when to use medical assistance.
Students also take home class handouts, two guided meditation CDs, and the book “HypnoBirthing®: The Mongan Method”, by Marie F. Mongan, M.Ed., M.Hy.
More About HypnoBirthing®
When a mother is truly ready for birthing, physically, mentally and emotionally – and entirely relaxed – she can experience the joy of birth with more comfort, often easier and more quickly.
HypnoBirthing® is a philosophy and practice which empowers parents to have a stress free, comfortable, and natural birth. Through education, self-hypnosis techniques, and relaxation, a mother and her companion are given tools to have a birth that is natural for both the mother and baby. HypnoBirthing® classes are authenticated by the HypnoBirthing® Institute.
The Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing® was rediscovered by Marie F. Mongan based on the concepts of natural birth of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, an English obstetrician. Through this wonderful program, held in our lovely studio in Dovercourt Village, you and your birthing companion will discover how to make your birth a joyful experience.
