ABOUT MY COURSE

COURSE STRUCTURE:
I teach the Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® program over 5 consecutive weeks. Each class is 2 ½ hours. 

 

WEEKLY OUTLINE:

Session 1: Building A Positive Expectancy

Session 2: Falling in Love With Your Baby/Preparing Mind & Body

Session 3: Getting Ready to Welcome your Baby

Session 4: Overview of Childbirth—A Labour of Love

Session 5: Birthing—Breathing Love, Bringing Life 

 

WHAT WE TALK ABOUT:
  • The physiology of the uterus and how fear affects it

  • Why labour hurts and why it doesn't have to

  • Suggestions to initiate labour naturally

  • Relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques to facilitate the opening and softening of the body

  • Breathing techniques that quickly create a state of relaxation and comfort, shorten the first stage of labour and eliminate forced pushing during the birthing phase

  • Visualizations for an easier birth

  • How to provide massage to release endorphins during birth

  • What to expect during the last few weeks, at the onset and during labour and how the body will work with you

  • Clearing anxieties, limiting beliefs or fear surrounding birth

  • How your birth companion can assist and be involved in the birth

  • Avoiding artificial induction of labour if that is your preference

  • Remaining in control if interventions are proposed 

  • Positions to facilitate deeper relaxation and a more comfortable birthing experience

  • How to draft a birth plan for discussion with your chosen care provider
