My husband grew up on a farm.

Whether you can use Hypnobirthing or not don’t feel bad if you monbanthis book is a good read for any expecting mom. I read and re-read this book several times! I enjoyed it well, maybe “enjoyed” is too strong a term –but I recognize it’s not for anyone. I do believe that relaxation, visualization, and self-hypnosis can reduce pain, and I know all too well that psychological factors can cause muscles to tense up and trigger pain. I do believe we need to be knowledgeable about our own bodies, I do believe we need to try to relax and trust our own strength, to have a say in our birth experience, and I can imagine that self-hypnosis might help some women go to that place of calm and peace, but this book, unfortunately, does nothing to create that trusting atmosphere or feeling of self-empowerment.

Thanks to her, I had a calm, drug-free, satisfying, and happy experience giving birth. Hyponbirthing good resource for natural childbirth, but go into the thing with open eyes, not rose-colored glasses. Sports scientists, CBT therapists, people on diets all know this.

I was mostly quiet while giving birth, but I was quiet because it was hurting so much, and I felt like I was going to lose it if I let myself talk or scream or interact, in any way, with the outside world.

On the flip side, I understand the theory behind this book, that women should not be scared of giving birth. Also around me were many midwives who’d seen it in action and know it can work extremely well. I do think that pain can be greatly reduced by using some of Mongan’s methods, but whether or not they will completely eliminate hhypnobirthing depends on the woman and her body.

I am now a firm believer that we’d all be better off if we self-hypnotized and consciously relaxed for a few minutes every day. It goes to the heart of what we in HypnoBirthing frequently puzzle over: This CD and Tornetta’s I alternated them to avoid boredom enabled me to relax deeply.

It continually references you to take the classes, so it is more of an advertisement for them than a teaching tool of its own. I think having hypnobjrthing doula or midwife who is well trained in this method along side of me would of helped tremendously, or having prepared with my husband by taking a class together also could of helped.


HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie F. Mongan

Childbirth is not something to be feared; it is a natural expression of life. These relaxation techniques One of the greatest lessons I took away from this book is the concept of breathing hypmobirthing difficult moments, in parenting and in life.

That may work for some women, to go into the experience with an ultra optimistic, happy thoughts mindset, but personally I’d mariie know what I’m getting into. One, it introduced me to the amazing power of self-hypnosis and I am not a crunchy granola mystical earth being.

Hypnobirthing : The Mongan Method the Natural Approach to a Safe, Easier, More Comfortable Birthing

There are no discussion topics on this book hypnobirthinb. The best that can happen is that you have a better birth because of it. Yet to an extent I came away from both births somewhat dissatisfied. I would love to see the science behind her claims.

To preface, I should say that I grew up being told by my own mother exactly what this author is saying, namely, that contractions during childbirth don’t hurt and that giving birth is just a lot of pressure “down yhpnobirthing. Further, I find it a bit offensive that the premise of this book is that if you feel pain in childbirth, it is either because you fear the pain I didn’t, honestly or because somehow you hypnobirrthing WANTED the pain hypnobiirthing that everyone would give you attention.

Theoretically, I agree with this. I listened to the cd that came along with the book and really had a hard time relaxing to it while practicing, but during labor it worked surprisingly well. Oct 18, Nafee rated it really liked it. Nov 04, Lindley Walter-smith rated it did not like it.

Sep 24, Lauren rated it it was ok. With HypnoBirthingyour pregnancy and childbirth will become the gentle, life-affirming process it was meant to be. The concept of hypnobirthing sounded like a good one to me to aid in the accomplishment of natural birth. It made it sound like if birth did not happen as planned, it would be the mom’s fault for not being relaxed enough. It Finally, it speaks only to wealthy women who have completely unrestricted financial choices about birth – she actually says that if you say you can’t afford something, then it’s your own fault that you’re poor, because, you know, the Secret.


I would recommend it as worth exploring for someone considering natural childbirth. I ended up listening to the accompanying CD often, although I always fell asleep after the first 5 minutes.

Hypnobirthing : Marie F. Mongan :

Unfortunately, I ended up losing my concentration due to some interventions from the hospital – I hadn’t fully released my fear of pitocin – and could not reestablish my deep relaxation.

Anyway, I think, listening to a good relaxation video and doing a yoga class will get you in a much more at-ease, confident state than reading this book. Unlike my first delivery, I approached labor with enthusiasm rather than as a marathon event that I had to work through.

It probably won’t work for everyone While I can get behind the idea that birth doesn’t have to be scary and horrible, and that the scary parts can be eased with self-relaxation techniques, I just can’t read any more of this book. So, all these little anecdotes are really all beyond bogus and completely unconvincing to me. Mongan explodes the myth of pain as a natural accompaniment to birth.

There was a little bit of useful general information in there that falls in line with my personal low intervention philosophies toward births that aren’t presenting complications.

The method mostly involves reciting positive mantras on childbirth, practicing self-hypnosis scripts with a partner intended to replace the traditional “strings of expletives” method of childbirth communication, I thinklearning to make birth plans, practicing positions and massages that ease the process this is what helped me the MOST However, it’s irritating how much time is taken up in this book to justify hypnobirthing and to try to co-opt you into the cult.

Hypnosis is something we do all the time – the Mongan Method simply organises it into a programme for birth and adds that there’s simply n I combined this with classes from a HypnoBirthing practitioner. It made it sound like if birth did not happen as planned, it would be the mom’s fault for not being rela I was hhpnobirthing this to be familiar with other methods as a doula, and also just curious.
