Welcome to the most amazing birthing method out there!! I gave birth to my daughter Emma after taking the HypnoBirthing course and had a remarkable, unforgettable and serene birth. My mission is to give you the top tools to empower you on your unique birthing experience and share my knowledge and my familiarity with this method. I feel very blessed that my work as a Hypnobirthing facilitator has touched so many couples and babies' lives throughout the years as I'm consistently striving to make a bigger difference in the birthing world.  I am honored and inspired to be part of this extraordinary journey with you.

 THIS PROGRAM IS FOR:

  • Pregnant women and their birthing partners

  • VBAC mothers

  • Those who have had birth trauma

  • Women who are planning a medically necessary cesarean section


THIS IS YOUR BODY, YOUR BABY, YOUR FAMILY

Birthing is a spontaneous, creative experience that cannot be planned or forced. There is an innate wisdom within human beings to birth their babies.

In this program you will gain an awareness and confidence about birth, inspiring you to actualize this wisdom. Sharing this experience can help you create a bond of trust and love, the foundation of your family.

BIRTH IS A NORMAL, NATURAL AND HEALTHY PROCESS

Women and babies have the inherent wisdom necessary for birth. A vaginal birth is likely to be the safest and most satisfying option for you. The majority of women can birth without any interventions.

HypnoBirthing® classes meet weekly for 5 weeks, and each class is 2.5 hours. Private instruction and accelerated instruction are available on request. Class fees include the book HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method, 2 CDs, and other handouts.
