‘My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a truly safe, comfortable and satisfying birthing for herself and her baby.’ Marie F Mongan, founder of HypnoBirthing®: The Mongan Method
The birth of your baby should be one of the most amazing experiences of your life, but for many women the experience becomes one of pain, lack of control and disappointment. HypnoBirthing® can change this.
HypnoBirthing® is founded on the belief that childbirth is a natural, normal part of a woman’s life and that, as such, her body will know how to birth by instinct, calmly, with support but without medical intervention.
HypnoBirthing® is a philosophy, much more than a technique for birth. Through the use of positive thinking, enhanced relaxation, visualisation, breathing and physical preparation, HypnoBirthing® supports a woman throughout her pregnancy, birth and beyond.
The course is run over 5, 2.5 hour sessions (the last session useally runs over), once a week to give yourself plenty of time to take things in and practice relaxation techniques. It covers topics such as the history of birth, how hypnosis is helpful during pregnancy and birth, how birth affects the baby, understanding how the uterus works, how to cope with fear and eliminate it, ways to strengthen bonding, breathing techniques (which are amazing!), demystifying medical language, understanding your options in pregnancy and birth and ways your birthing partner can help you during labour.
The cost of the course is £325 for private classes. The classes are for you and your partner and the price includes the book ‘HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method’ and relaxation CD. You will also receive on-going support before your baby is born.
Classes can be held in your own home or if you prefer, my home which is a clam relaxing environment.
Ideally you should aim to complete the course by 37 weeks and if possible start the course around 27 weeks, which will give you plenty of practice time.
These are the four things which were really important for me, but every woman is different and you wil have your own reasons for choosing HypnoBirthing®.
a comfortable birth
With HypnoBirthing®, you’ll learn how to have a calm, comfortable birth; a birth in which you fully participate and which is entirely natural.
HypnoBirthing® teaches you how to work with your body, not against it. You’ll help your body relax and use techniques to achieve a more comfortable birth, drug-free.why choose HypnoBirthing?
support before, during and after the birth
HypnoBirthing® doesn’t just begin with labour. You’ll find that HypnoBirthing® supports you from the moment you begin your classes, through labour and into your new life.
HypnoBirthing® will help you decide on every aspect of your birth and give you the confidence to keep control and be empowered to have the birth you want.
I really felt like I was a part of the whole experience and I felt like the things I was doing were really helping.

I don’t think I would have been able to make it through without your classes and hypnobirthing.
Sam, Chris and Baby Millie
I gave birth to Dean naturally without pain relief which has continued to astound everyone who finds out especially as he was born 10lb 9oz!
Leigh, Paul & Baby Dean
While it wasn’t the absolute perfect hypnobirthing experience we had envisaged, it couldn’t really have gone much better and the hypnobirthing certainly helped.
Joanne & Baby Trudi
So all in all a really good experience & I would do it again tomorrow! So glad we did the course with you as it made such a difference to our experience.
Abby, Stewart & Baby Molly
Thank you so much for all your help and it just goes to show that even when a birth progresses completely differently from your plan Hypnobirthing allows you to remain relaxed and calm and to go with the flow!
Alana & Baby Dan
I believe that the confidence and ability to relax that I learnt through HypnoBirthing has helped make the past year the best of my life.
Christa & Baby Eli
HypnoBirthing offers a really excellent way to fully understand what will be happening to your body during the birth and this really helps to take away the fear and give you more control.

I honestly believe I wouldn’t have gone all the way on just gas and air had it not been for the wonderful tuition and guidance from my hypnobirthing instructor Debs.
Nicky, Paul & Baby Lewis
Hi, I’m Debs. I’m a HypnoBirthing® practitioner, based in Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex and I’m a HypnoBirthing® mum too. In fact, before my pregnancy, I had no background in midwifery or anything medical, I’m a freelance graphic designer. But all that changed when I discovered I was pregnant and gave birth to my baby Roni. This is my story...
I was so terrified of birth, I didn’t ever think I could have my own baby. So when, I found out I was pregnant, my feelings of joy and surprise were all eclipsed by one thing: how would I survive giving birth?
Yet I wanted my baby, more than I could ever have believed. What’s more, I wanted to make sure my child had the best start in life and the thought of drugs and frantic hospital wards didn’t appeal.
That’s when a friend recommended HypnoBirthing®. To say I was cynical would be an understatement(!) but I signed up for classes and, to my surprise, I found that it really made sense. In fact, more than anything, it seemed like ordinary common sense. Whats’more, the experience not only got me through the birth, but kept me calm throughout the pregnancy too, not allowing fear to consume me and give me too many sleepless nights!
The birth of my son Roni was the most amazing experience of my life. My passion for so long was design, but this is in a league of its own. HypnoBirthing® taught me how to work with my body, not against it – a real team effort! When I talk of Roni’s birth I get so excited, it was something I had feared my whole life, then at 32, could have done it again the next day!
The whole experience helped me through what I thought was going to be the worst experience of my life, and I wanted to share this with everyone. My partner, Simon was also involved throughout the whole thing, from practicing relaxation, to being a wonderful companion during the birth. I was overwhelmed with how much easier it all was. I decided to train to become a practitioner, so that hopefully I can help other mums to be, as scared as I was, have a wonderful pregnancy and birth like I did.
All I can say is.... it works.
