About HypnoBirthing®

HypnoBirthing is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing and stress free undisturbed birthing. HypnoBirthing teaches women and birthing companions the art and joy of experiencing birth in a safe, more comfortable manner for themselves and their babies. Through guided imagery and self-hypnosis women learn how to call upon their bodies’ own natural endorphins and thus eliminate or greatly reduce the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when the mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with women in other cultures and with all other creatures.

You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing® videos showing laboring mothers, awake, alert and in good humor, as they experience safe, gentle birth – free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome and free of unnecessary interruption. HypnoBirthing teaches a woman how to release all prior programming about birth, to free herself of limiting thoughts and emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and resistant muscles, and to trust her body and work with the flow and rhythm of her labor,

HypnoBirthing helps all women, including those who are high-risk, to rediscover their natural birthing instinct, and birth more comfortably. Moms are awake, aware, and fully in control, but deeply relaxed as they birth their babies into the world

According to physiological law, 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. Jon Dye, Easier Childbirth, Buffalo, 1891


I thought I was a good midwife until I took the HypnoBirthing® Program. Now I’m an outstanding midwife.
Carol Porter, CNM

I’ve been a Labor & Birthing nurse for 17+ years; and after attending HypnoBirthing couples, I’ll never look at birth in the same light. It’s incredible.
Judy Richardson, RN
Traveling Nurse


Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® respects birth as a natural extension of the love and sexuality of a man and a woman; therefore, we believe it is not about doctors, nurses, midwives, or childbirth educators. It’s about mothers AND fathers and babies—FAMILIES. Our role is to assist by cultivating respect for the rights and wishes of families to bring their babies into the world in a gentle, calm, and undisturbed manner. It’s about helping women learn to call upon their natural birthing instinct. It’s about inspired parents, learning to take responsibility for their own births by actively seeking the right care provider. It’s about empowered parents, welcoming their babies into the world in a “Celebration of Life”.

About the Founder

Marie Mickey Mongan, founder of HypnoBirthing®, is an award-winning therapist and a licensed counselor with over 30 years’ experience in counseling on the college level and in the private sector. She holds many awards in hypnotherapy and was named 2011 Birth Hero by the London-based One world Birth Organization. In 2005 she becomes the first woman ever to receive the National Guild of Hypnotists highest honor. In 2010 she was awarded the Ormond McGill Chair, one of the field’s highest distinctions. She was awarded The Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Assn. of Counselors and Therapists in May of 2013.

Early in her career, she was named one of five outstanding educational leaders in New Hampshire. And in 1992, she was selected to teach in Moscow as a diplomat for the Bridges for Peace Foundation.

She is the mother of four adult children, born in the mid-50s and early 60s, using the theories of Grantly Dick-Read, on whose work HypnoBirthing is partly based.

Her book, HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method, is among the bestselling childbirth education textbooks, and is the text used in HypnoBirthing® classes.

The HypnoBirthing® Premise

For most of their lives, women have been inundated with the negative stories of other women’s birth experiences. Everyone, from their mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, and even strangers, wants to tell them the horrors of giving birth. They have been conditioned to believe that excruciating pain is associated with birth; and because of this, women today hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth. This extreme fear causes their bodies to become tense, and that tension prohibits their bodies from easily performing a normal physiological function. The result?--exactly what they feared most--long, painful birthings.

People who are drawn to this method of childbirth have long been searching for a way to help women give birth as calmly, safely, and gently as possible. Until HypnoBirthing, it almost seemed unattainable.

Through a very simple program of self-hypnosis, ultimate relaxation and education, women learn to work through fear-based stories and misinformation, and they are helped to see birth as normal. They learn to trust that their bodies know exactly how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way that Nature intended.
