This is a childbirth education program to teach you and your birthing companion how to prepare and plan the best birth for you. The program is based on the work of English obstetrician, Dr Grantly Dick-Read, the father of Natural Childbirth, who through his work in obstetrics and his book “Childbirth Without Fear” inspired Marie Mongan to develop the HypnoBirthing programme. HypnoBirthing incorporates techniques for self-hypnosis, breathing exercises and visualisation. With HypnoBirthing you will be fully aware and in control but deeply relaxed. HypnoBirthing will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts with confidence and trust.
