What is HypnoBirthing

Historically, the stereotypical labor and birthing process, has been associated with pain, fear, discomfort, and tension that exceed nearly all other life experiences. Women in Western Societies have adopted the belief that the birthing process should be painful, when in reality, Hypnobirthing® allows women the same peaceful experience that women in other cultures have practiced for centuries.

Marie Mongan M. Ed., M. Hy, created HypnoBirthing®. (Certified Hypno-anesthesiologist) in an effort to allow mother, baby and birth companion a means in ehich the true art and joy of birth could be experienced. HypnoBirthing® combines a Natural Childbirth approach with the use of self-hypnosis to create harmony between your mind and body. The birth process can then be experienced in a more safe, calm and serene way for mother, baby, and birth companion.

Generally, the pain that accompanies the birthing process is brought abot by the fear of intense labor. Fear creates a chemical response in the body producing catecholamine, which deprives the uterus of oxygenated blood that allows the uterus to function most effectively. When muscles do not function correctly, dilation does not occur properly and pain is created.

Through the education that the HypnoBirthing® classes provides, mothers are able to condition their minds and bodies in such a way that allows them to remain calm, yet alert, during the birthing process. Diminishing, if not eliminating, the painful sensations previously associated with birth, due to the release of endorphins. Since endorphins are 200 times stronger than morphine, mothers report producing their own natural epidural.

The Following are more advantages of the HypnoBirthing® Program:

  1. Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during, and after birthing.
  2. Reduces the need for chemical anesthesia.
  3. Eliminates fatigue during labor, leaving the mother fresh, awake, and with the energy needed to bring her baby into the worked.
  4. Shortens the first stage of labor and delivery by several hours
  5. Brings together the mother, the baby, and the birthing companion in a wonderful prenatal and prenatal bonding experience.
  6. The birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker.
  7. Postnatal recovery is rapid and easier
  8. Babies are better adjusted and happier.
  9. Mothers do not run the risk of hyperventilating from shallow breathing.
  10. Birthing is returned to the beautiful, peaceful experience that nature intended.

 

HypnoBirthing® techniques teach woman how to release all prior programming about birth to free herself of limiting thoughts and emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and resistant muscles. When giving birth with HypnoBirthing®, a mother is not in a trance or asleep but instead in a state of deep relaxation—awake, aware, and fully in control.

HypnoBirthing® is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education enhanced by self‑hypnosis and guided imagery techniques that allow women to use their natural abilities to bring about safer, easier, and more comfortable birthing.
