Hypnobirthing: The Mongan Method book explains this new approach to safer, easier, more comfortable birthing. Hypnobirthing founder, Marie Mongan, dismisses the notion that pain is a natural accompaniment to birth. She explains that when we release the fear, a fear that is keeping our body tense and closed, we will experience gentle birth.
The HypnoBirthing program outlined in this book is nature, not manipulation. It relaxes the mind in order to let the body work. The exercises – positive thinking, relaxation, visualization, breathing and physical preparation – will lead to a more comfortable pregnancy.
The author, Marie Mongan, is the Director of the HypnoBirthing Institute, licensed as a counsellor and holds certification as an advanced clinical hypnotherapist and an instructor of hypnotherapy.
