Birth is a rite of passage and a hugely anticipated moment and one that can be intimidating.

Using the HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method, you’ll learn to draw on your natural strength and inner calm to allow your body to do what generations of women have done before. Physician or midwife, home birth or hospital, epidural or nonmedicated, even inductions and cesarean births—no matter your birth, planned or unplanned, you have the power to bring your new baby into the world in a way that feels right for you.


Mongan Method HypnoBirthing is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing and stress-free birthing experience. HypnoBirthing teaches you and your birth companion the art and joy of giving birth in a more comfortable and enjoyable way. You’ll learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication.

HypnoBirthing allows you to release all prior expectations—internal and societal—and connect with your own natural birthing instincts, to trust your body and work with it, and free yourself from harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.

When you’re properly prepared for childbirth, and when the mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does for all other creatures. You will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed, as you begin your new chapter in motherhood.


The HypnoBirthing® course that I teach offers everything you need to know to achieve a safer, easier, and more comfortable birth. The series of 5 well-paced classes support you in building confidence in your body’s natural ability to conceive, nurture, and birth your baby. We’ll explore the myth that pain is a necessary accompaniment to labor and discover the inherent flaws in most other modern childbirth methods.

What you’ll get:

  • Series of 5 weekly 2.5-hour classes
  • Small class size for personal attention
  • Your own copy of the Fourth Edition HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method text
  • Meditation recordings for relaxation, stress reduction, and bonding
  • Birth Preferences handout
  • Birth Prompts for your birth companion
  • Nutrition and yoga (postures) for a healthy pregnancy
  • Demonstration and practice in optimal birth positions
  • Techniques to create your body’s own natural relaxant to help you eliminate the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome


The hypnobirthing classes we took with Kristy were a wonderful experience.  My husband and I both learned so much and are excited to try this new approach.  She was able to answer all of our questions and ease our anxieties so that rather than being scared of giving birth, I’m actually looking forward to it!Nicole D.
