I have had 3 births, and the latter two were with HypnoBirthing...the original Mongan Method. HypnoBirthing worked so well for me, but the key was that I keeped it simple.
Here's the thing.....it's not rocket science. In your HypnoBirthing class, you learn why labor doesn't have to hurt and the whole fear-tension-pain syndrome thing. The point of the hypnosis in class
is to reprogram your deepseated beliefs (labor=pain) into the beliefs that will help you realize a relaxed, peaceful birth (labor=comfort). The practice that you do at home
, i.e. the relaxation or self-hypnosis, is what is SO beneficial to you in labor so that you can fully relax during your surges and ALLOW your body to work as nature intended. Let birth happen.
My last birth was a home birth and we ended up transporting to the hospital. I was actually enjoying the labor so much that I was holding my baby in, subconsciously. We were only at the hospital 6 minutes before he was born because I finally let go once we got in the car. 51 hours from membrane release to birth, all joyful and painless.
HypnoBirthing is tried and true...15 years of it. I personally became a practitioner after my first HypnoBirthing birth and have a success rate of over 81%. Email Marie Mongan if you have questions about HypnoBirthing. She was eager to help me, and I'm sure she would be eager to help you. Her email address is email@example.com
and you can also access the official HypnoBirthing Institute's Q&A Forum at www.HypnoBirthing.com
and click on the forum.
I am personally willing to answer anyone's questions about HypnoBirthing, and my first HypnoBirthing is on the HB web site as well. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

Take care and happy birthings!!!
