The Mongan Method

Childbirth education for safer, easier, more comfortable birthing in the way that most mirrors nature

Founded by

Marie F. Mongan, M.Ed., M.Hy.

HypnoBirthing Institute



HypnoBirthing...is as much a philosophy as it is a technique.  It is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy,  When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy, birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable, and often even pain-free manner.  Through a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation and education, HypnoBirthing returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in safety and with ease.  HypnoBirthing is based on the belief that severe discomfort does not need to be a natural accompaniment of birthing.


The HypnoBirthing Advantage

  1. Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birthing.
  2. Reduces, and often eliminates the need for chemical anesthesia, episiotomy, and other interventions.
  3. Lessens fatigue during labour, leaving the mother fresh, awake and energized as she brings her baby into the world.
  4. Shortens the thinning and opening phase of labour by several hours and allows the birthing mother to utilize the natural pulsations of her body to breathe her baby down to the crowning stage, rather than pushing for long, exhausting periods of time.
  5. Brings the mother, the baby and the birthing companion together in a wonderful prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal bonding experience.
  6. The birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker.
  7. Almost entirely eliminates postnatal discomfort and "baby blues".
  8. Babies are better adjusted and happier, resulting in better eating and sleeping routines.
  9. Mothers don't run the risk of hyperventilating from shallow breathing.
  10. Birthing is returned to the safe, beautiful, peaceful experience that Nature intended.


"According to physiological laws, all natural, normal functions of the body are achieved without peril or pain.  Birth is a natural, normal physiological function for normal, healthy women, and their healthy babies.  It can therefore be inferred that healthy women, carrying healthy babies, can safely birth without peril or pain." 

Dr. John Dye, Easier Childbirth 1891
