have celebrated my HypnoBirthing baby's first birthday today
(October 16, 2010), and what an amazing journey we have been on
together. I had an amazing time throughout my pregnancy and had
a beautiful birth thanks to all the techniques I learned. People
always comment on what a contented, happy baby he is. I just
can't say thank you enough. I was absolutely petrified of birth
after my first experience 14 years ago and now I could do it all
again tomorrow!! My partner and I have been saying all today
what a wonderful day our son's birth-day was, so special,
spiritual, and wonderful. Since then I have obviously become a
practitioner and I am teaching in the birth centre where I
birthed. I feel so privileged to share HypnoBirthing with other
parents, as I know others do. A huge thanks to Marie Mongan,
HypnoBirthing -The Mongan Method, of course, and all of you.

Oh and I just purchased HypnoParenting CD. It is super! I wish
I'd have gotten it sooner as I really missed my affirmations and
daily relaxation to that great music. Now I'm enjoying them

Just wanted to let you know we had the baby! I could
not have done it without taking this class from you.
I wanted to thank you for teaching such a good
HypnoBirthing class. It was such an enjoyable
experience for my husband and I both.
I just wanted to take the time to thank Marie for
writing the fantastic book 'HypnoBirthing - The
A month ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl,
Helena, my second child, at a birth center at The
Canberra Hospital in Canberra, Australia.
After a panicked, fearful and painful first labour
with my son, I was in search of a new approach to
giving birth. I didn't find your book until one
month before my due date, and by this time it was
too late for me to take part in a HypnoBirthing
class, however the information I learned from
reading your book, and practicing the techniques in
the weeks leading up to her birth were invaluable.
Helena was born intervention and drug free in a
calm, peaceful environment, with the help of my
husband and midwife, and I will be forever grateful
to you for providing me with the tools to create
such a wonderful environment and mindset for labour.
It was a joyful experience, and I believe that by
helping me to relax both during labour and leading
up to it, it has contributed to my peaceful and
contented little daughter, and to my quick recovery.
I continue to use the relaxation techniques I've
learnt now that I am the parent of two small
Thank you again - I will be recommending your
techniques to my family, friends, and hopefully one
day my own daughter.

"Three midwives attended the birth of our daughter
and all were very impressed by my ability to cope
with labor. The midwives almost didn't make it in
time, because I was coping so well, I didn't realize
how far I had progressed until my water broke when I
entered "transition." The skills my husband and I
learned in HypnoBirthing gave us confidence and
greatly eased my birthing experience. I feel such
gratitude for my instructor and the program in
general. Throughout my labor I kept reciting my
favorite affirmations to myself, and I never felt
any fear. Looking back on my experience fills me
with joy and pride."
and After the Birth
"Thanks for the truly informative classes which
are not only changing our perspective and
culture on birth, but also greatly offering a
better quality of life for our soon to be born
child from the very beginning. You do good work, Debi, and we

Oden was born a little after 5:00am! His birth was a fast 4
hours, peaceful, and healthy. It was beautiful and amazed us
with its nature.
We arrived around 2:00am last night
and were back at home by 2:00pm this
afternoon. We are all now hanging out and bonding. My how much
we love him already.
"We had an amazing experience. We owe the positive nature of our
experience with bringing
our son into this world to our connection to
you, your class, and HypnoBirthing®. Thanks
so much, Debi!"

labor started early in the morning, and was pretty
much unaware of it. When the surges started to get
stronger I just used the breathing I learned and
focused. At about 7pm I was 7/8 cm, from then got
into the pool, kept my focus through what Cath had
taught me and breathed my baby out, it didn't hurt
hardly at all, it was quite orgasmic in a word! it
felt nice. I caught him and brought him to my chest.
I felt amazing, I'd done it, just lying there
cuddling my new son, I burst into tears of joy!.
believe that HypnoBirthing made all the difference
to me, Cath was brilliant, and couldn't wait to tell
her how well I'd done, so well the Midwife kept
telling me I was so quiet!! Now after having this
experience I'd love to have another baby using this
method, and video this time!!
I Wanted to Do HypnoBirthing
I knew from the beginning that wanted to do
HypnoBirthing. I have had friends use it in the
past, and I’ve heard nothing but great stories about
it. I approached my practice of HypnoBirthing with
positive thoughts and warded off all negative
comments from others, replacing them with positive
thoughts to reinforce the fact that I could do this.
I couldn’t wait to actually give birth and
experience using HypnoBirthing in its truest form to
show all the “nay-sayers” that it could be done.
For us the birth
was an insanely beautiful experience! As I was having regular
tightness in my belly- in the womb area I went to the hospital,
was examined and the midwife said my cervix was already 9 cm.
Which was super! From this time on we spend about 3 hours (from
these, 1 hour and 15 minutes in the tub until our daughter
Leonie came into the world. Between surges I could relax
wonderfully, the special breathing, and the warm water where
very relaxing for me. It was a unique experience and we can
recommend HypnoBirthing to everyone, since one can prepare
actually pregnant and am in Love with your program, so
empowering and really affirms what I 'know' somewhere inside
While I was not able to
stay with the specific HypnoBirthing techniques
later in labor, the classes and relaxation
techniques did help in preparing me mentally for the
labor and in the early stages. I had had a
c-section with my first child, so this was a
successful unmedicated VBAC, which was wonderful.
The confidence that HypnoBirthing gave me helped me
fully know that my body was still able to birth
naturally. My daughter who I had the c/s with
never nursed well, but this time, my son is doing
wonderfully, I can’t help but think it’s b/c of
having a natural birth.

Here is my birthing story
"Before I start, it is pertinent for all who read this to
understand that my son is truly a miracle baby. According to 3
doctors, and many not so fun tests, I was told I would never be
able to bear children. I
had a horrible case of crohns disease, cervical dysplasia
and was supposed to be infertile. Being a maternal person who
always wanted children, I did not accept no for an answer. Lucky
for me, being stubborn can come in handy sometimes."

birth story is about our 3rd child – Christian Luke
Robinson. My due date was 10/8. At 11:30 pm of that night I was
complaining that nothing exciting happens to put me into labor,
my surges usually just start. On 10/9 at 12:30 am as I was
headed to the bathroom my water actually released! I was really
excited even as my surges started strong - 5 minutes apart 15
minutes after my water broke. I really wanted to trim the labor
time down to my wish time of 6 hours...Read
