REVISED AND UPDATED FOR 2016
Childbirth is not something to be feared; it is a natural expression of life. HypnoBirthing® is a celebration of life and embracing a natural birth, connection with your pre-born baby, will build a better understanding of your baby as a conscious little person who can interact with you, even before birth.
Marie Mongan explodes the myth of pain as a natural accompaniment to birth. It is the fear of pain, a fear that keeps the body tense and closed during birth, which must be released to allow the experience of a gentle birth. Relaxing the mind allows the body to work. The HypnoBirthing® method is an act of nature and not medical manipulation. Using the HypnoBirthing® exercises – positive thinking, visualisation, breathing and physical preparation – will lead to a happy and comfortable pregnancy. In turn, the confidence, trust and life-affirming nature of your birth will be a life-changing experience for the rest of the life of the new family.
The new revised and updated edition includes:
An in-depth understanding of how the birthing body works
Nature’s Perfect Birth Plan–why we innately know how to birth without intervention
Why medicalised labor hurts more—and why it doesn’t have to when done naturally
Learning how to birth instinctively
How to transition from the afterglow of birth with post-natal care
Marie Mongan is the founder of the HypnoBirthing® programme and has helped over 10,000 couples to change their lives through its practice.
“The alternative birth method that midwives predict will be standard antenatal practice within a decade.”
“HypnoBirthing… is sweeping through fashionable society moms in the United States faster than a Californian wildfire… The more I read, the more I began to appreciate her alternative approach to birthing… HypnoBirthing says that instead of thinking about all the stuff that might go wrong, why not see it all going right.”
“Simple but specific hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for an easier birth… proves that labour doesn’t have to be accompanied by severe pain, allowing you to overcome anxieties and enjoy the experience of birth.”
‘Junior Pregnancy & Baby’
“Any normal, low-risk pregnancies can use the exercises outlined in this book – positive thinking, relaxation, visualisation, breathing, nutrition and physical exercises – to follow a happy and comfortable pregnancy leading to a peaceful birth.”
“The more I found out about hypnobirthing, the more it made sense. If breathing and focusing techniques could help keep me so calm that I could reduce the length of labour and avoid pain relief, I couldn’t see a downside.”
