Melanie's March 2013 Birth Here
When my midwife first suggested HypnoBirthing® for my birth preparation, I instantly imagined a dark clothed man in a satin cape with greased hair and with a thin villainesque mustache swinging a pocketwatch in front of my eyes. Uh-huh. My midwife had given me some options for birth classes and luckily for me, the instructor from my original choice of classes could not call me back as soon as I needed her to. Time just kept a-tickin' and I had to enroll in some kind of birth preparation quickly since it was my first pregnancy and a homebirth. Thank goodness it worked out the way it did because HypnoBirthing® changed my life! Whether you choose to bring your baby into the world in a hospital, birth center or in your home, you can achieve a comfortable, smooth and relaxed birth by learning how to work with your body's instincts. HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method can help you achieve the kind of gentle birth you wish to give your baby. -Melanie
The HypnoBirthing® Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. HypnoBirthing® teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.
You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing® films showing laboring mothers, awake, alert and in good humor as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome.
HypnoBirthing® teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.
HypnoBirthing® will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts. With HypnoBirthing®, you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.
"How we give birth matters! What our babies experience shapes who they are. What a mother experiences at the very transition from maiden to mother changes her. Gentle, natural birth unlocks something primal at our very core that makes mothering easier and makes families stronger... If parents would only realize that every single decision they make from conception onward influences the outcome of their birth, they could reclaim what they didn't even know was lost!"
