We are told every day through the media, well intentioned friends and family, and the medical system that birth is dangerous, painful, and abnormal. But, our instincts tell us a different story. We know that birth is spiritual. We are deeply connected to our creator, our bodies, our babies, and all of the women that have gone before us. We know that our predecessors were able to birth normally in safety but we realize that many moms we know do not have this experience.
My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a truly safe, comfortable, and satisfying birthing for herself and her baby.

HypnoBirthing® teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth comfortably. You will learn to call on your body’s natural anesthesia to birth your baby. As women have done for ages, you will reconnect to your innate ability to birth as all the other creatures do.
Fear changes the physiology of birth. It makes our muscles tighten and creates tension that leads to pain. When we change our expectation of birth and learn to relax into our births, we find that we are free. We find that our vision becomes reality and our birth is a celebration.
When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.
— Marie Mongan
It is an honor to come alongside you and your birth companion and give you the tools to imagine your birth, believe that all of your hopes for your birth will come to fruition, and embrace the joy of birth that is rightfully yours.
