HypnoBirthing - Childbirth Education Classes
Witnessing the incredible power of women giving birth as a Doula has been truly remarkable. Each family I have supported has their own unique birth story. Reflecting on these experiences, I have realized that education is the key to offering better support to future moms-to-be. By gaining a deeper understanding of the natural processes the body undergoes during labor and learning how to assist rather than resist them, moms can make a significant difference in their birth experience.
In my journey of learning and growth, I eagerly enrolled in Childbirth International’s childbirth education instructor course, driven by my passion to empower and support expecting parents on their journey to parenthood.
In my journey of learning and growth, I wholeheartedly embraced the opportunity to enroll in Childbirth International’s childbirth education instructor course. Fueled by a burning passion to empower and uplift expecting parents on their transformative journey to parenthood, I eagerly embarked on this transformative journey. However, while the course offered a comprehensive curriculum, replete with challenging tests, extensive reading materials, and enlightening seminars, its approach did not completely resonate with me It felt too medical-focused, solely preparing for potential complications, hospital policies, and procedures, rather than embracing the beautiful experience of childbirth, embracing the natural process, and exploring pain management alternatives.
Then, during the challenging times of Covid, I came across a childbirth education instructor course called HypnoBirthing International, The Mongan Method. This course, I realized, was the missing link I had been searching for. It emphasizes the power of mindset in birth, educating individuals on how their body’s hormonal symptoms work in harmony, how the body is the action component of the mind, and how our thoughts and actions play a crucial role. Through breathing techniques and relaxation practices, HypnoBirthing allows you to embrace your birthing body, working with your muscles instead of resisting them.

WHERE DOES HYPNOBIRTHING ORIGINATE?
HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method is the work of Marie F. Mongan, Founder and Creator of the HypnoBirthing® Institute. However, this program is based on philosophies and publications from past pioneers in natural birthing, Dr. Gregory White & Dr. Gantly Dick-Read.
Marie developed the HypnoBirthing Childbirth Education program over 3 decades ago when she saw a need in the birthing industry to return back to an intuitive and calm birth. HypnoBirthing was created to allow a mother’s body to birth the way it was intended, without interruptions and interference.
The program is based on the idea that healthy women experiencing healthy pregnancies without complications can birth without pain or peril, and should be respected in their decision to birth naturally.
Today, HypnoBirthing is recognized as the Gold Standard of Childbirth Education throughout the world, with classes taught in over 46 countries.
HypnoBirthing Educators are required to follow the HypnoBirthing® Institute code of ethics in order to maintain their Gold Seal. This Gold Seal assures families that the information they receive is the most relevant, evidence-based, up-to-date, and follows the HypnoBirthing curriculum guidelines.”
