Must Read Birth Books From My Bookshelf – Hypnobirthing: The Mongan Method

Leave a comment

Hypnobirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie F. Mongan is an exciting book that opened my eyes to the possibility that birth could be amazing! This book explains how your muscles will work in labour and how fear impacts on this process. It illustrates how being calm and relaxed will give you a smoother, easier and even pain-free birth.

Hypnobirthing offers advice on selecting and communicating with your care providers, ways to help you bond and fall in love with your baby in the womb, relaxation exercises, positive birth affirmations, ideas for partners to support you, suggestions for positions, relaxations and breathing that will be helpful during labour, and much more.

Regularly listening to the hypnobirthing relaxations will help you to become deeply relaxed and enter into an altered state of consciousness. If you able to reach this state during labour it is possible that you will experience birth as pain-free (I did!). Feeling calm and relaxed will help you to have a more positive birthing experience, however your labour unfolds.

Hypnobirthing offers the knowledge and techniques that will help you to become less fearful, less anxious, more comfortable, more confident and accepting of birth.
