Mar 12, Laura rated it mraie it Shelves: On the negative side, the book seems to present a moral philosophy of birth rather than information based upon research or current understanding of medical practices. One thing I learned though: Sep 04, Rima added it. The fact that no other book I have read supports such an outlandish claim makes me skeptical of the idea. A bit or a lot outdated, but it’ll give you the nitty gritty facts about childbirth that Mongan glosses.

Jun 12, Kimberly rated it liked it Shelves: This book only deals with the fantastical and rare time where women pop out a baby under an hour all while singing Kum-bay-ya and having multiple orgasms in a kiddie pool. That doesn’t even hold true for all straight women, but she obviously finds the idea of lesbian and otherwise non-heterosexually partnered mothers completely inconceivable.

Your confidence, trust and happy anticipation will in turn lead to the peaceful, fulfilling and bonding birth that is your right as a mother. I also agree tha First of all, there are good things in this book. Additionally, I appreciate that her goal is to help support pain free delivery.

Hypnobirthimg did like the pre-birth bonding with the baby.

The second time giving birth, I came in more prepared, and I tried to do the things my mom told me she did while laboring with me which was essentially a form of self-hypnosis and deep relaxationand although it did help me stay in control of the pain, it did NOT take away the pain. And do search for some that work for you, not everyone responds to images of lying in a rainbow field and turning the color of red or green or purple with feelings of calm.


I felt Mongan’s argument was convincing, although I went into the book already feeling that way. I was able to completely relax my body so that I wouldn’t fight against labor pains making it almost painless to go through labor and delivery.

And the funny thing is, that you can do sod all about things that go wrong – there is no point in preparing for the worst. I was reading this to be familiar with other methods as a doula, and also just curious.

So even though I read the book and knew hypnobirghing techniques, having a well versed nurse who hypnobirtihng me of what I needed to do was really essential. Nov 27, Bridget Jack Jeffries rated it it was ok Shelves: Also, err, if childbirth doesn’t hurt in and of itself, why the need for deeper and deeper relaxation as labor progresses? The idea that we can manage stress, anxiety and fear through educating ourselves, relaxation and conscious living seems intuitive enough, but putting it into practice really changes the way I SEE challenges.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie F. Mongan

Is this just a “social construction”? And nothing she writes proves that it is fear that causes pain. I have also maeie on youtube and watched videos of HypnoBirths to give myself a sense of how the partner can play a role in delivery.

I was able to deliver a 7 lb 14 oz baby in a foreign country without any meds.

Even more puzzling, why do parents accept the negative premise that birth is a dangerous, painful ordeal at best or a medical calamity at worst? It relaxes the mind in order to let the body work as it is designed.

These relaxation techniques have helped me approach moments where I would of otherwise lost patience or felt discouraged, instead feel calm, creative and even find humor. However, for this to happen a good coach or doula is very important.

Sep 25, Nickie rated it it was ok Shelves: Nov 12, Myridian rated it it was ok Shelves: 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 no point in being scared of birth. It probably won’t work for everyone There exits a preponderance of strong, well informed research to support the effectiveness of relaxation and diminished stress hormones during life altering events.

Maarie your baby dies, you killed her, always remember that!

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. We will help you look forward to your pregnancy and birthing with joy and love, rather than fear and anxiety.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method

According to the Church, since women are the cause of all trouble with Eve offering her apple to poor Adamthey are now punished for all eternity by having to suffer unbearable pain when giving birth.

The author talks of giving birth in a nice, trusting, positive environment, where you feel calm and loved and accepted. I can marle speak for my own experience, but I didn’t fear the pain, I didn’t want the pain, I hyonobirthing thought that the whole thing would hurt a lot less than it did, and yet, giving birth was the most painful experience I’ve ever had.
