“The original and still the best.”

The Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing® is the longest running community dedicated to using hypnosis in childbirth. It was founded in the United States in early 1989 by Marie “Mickey” Mongan, who is a licensed counselor and former dean of a small women’s college. The Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing® is the pioneer and leader in birth education with hypnosis. Several decades and thousands of classes later, HypnoBirthing® is the most widely used childbirth hypnosis program in the world. Today, there are HypnoBirthing® practitioners in 46 countries around the world who are helping women become aware of the benefits of calm, instinctive birthing for themselves and their babies.
