Why is it over 5 weeks?
We understand that as expecting parents, you are busier than ever and your time is precious, so being offered a single weekend childbirth class may seem enticing (until you really understand that a quick intensive course will not best prepare you for this major life event).
Self-hypnosis and deep relaxation are highly effective techniques for instinctive births. They are acquired skills that need to be learned gradually and practiced over time. Practicing between sessions provides you with time to condition your mind and body to the responses that make HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method so successful. There is no shortcut, and this is why our program is taught in 5, 2.5-hour sessions.
How much does HypnoBirthing cost?
Our Educators set their own prices for the classes, but all work closely together in ensuring their pricing is similar. Once you get in touch with your Educator they will outline the cost of the course. We feel confident that this will be one of the most important investments you make for your birth and start to parenting!
I was a bit skeptical about HypnoBirthing, however after the most incredible birthing experience, I gladly own up to how wrong I was! It gave both my husband and I the confidence to advocate for the birth we wanted and that felt natural to us. It was helpful in ways I hadn’t imagined possible and couldn’t have predicted.

After a horrific inducted & instrumental 1st birth I was experiencing severe anxiety about having to go through labour & birth again… Cyndi was an angel that kept me grounded throughout the whole process as our doula & hypnobirth teacher which allowed a great start to life for Lottie & helped us bond instantly!

HypnoBirthing was truly one of the most beautiful experiences. I recovered very quickly from both births and I truly believe hypnobirthing had so much to do with that and we have such relaxed, beautiful, healthy children. I hope many more woman and their partners can become empowered to have the births they dream of.
