HypnoBirthing® has fast taken over the globe promoting childbirth as something we should be celebrating and not fearing.
HypnoBirthing®: The Mongan Method the Natural Approach to a Safe, Easier, More Comfortable Birthing, is the leading book to help women reclaim their confidence and control during pregnancy and childbirth.
It is no surprise that HypnoBirthing® has gained momentum around the world. In fact more than 25,000 books were sold in 2014 through the author’s website alone. According to Nielsen BookScan, over 70,000 were sold through reporting retailers since its publication in 2005. And this is the 25th Anniversary revised edition.
Why has HypnoBirthing® become so popular?
Simply because it helps women become empowered by developing an awareness of the instinctive birthing capability of their bodies.
It focuses on greatly reducing the pain of labor and childbirth and frequently eliminates the need for drugs. There is also a notable reduction in the need for caesarian surgery or other doctor-controlled birth interventions. Additionally, birthing and recovery time is shortened allowing for better and earlier bonding with the baby. This has been proven to be vital to the mother-child bond. What’s more, parents report that their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven’t experienced birth trauma.
HypnoBirthing® founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience.
About the book
In this book she shows women how the Mongan Method works and how parents they can take control of the greatest and most important event of their lives. So, why is birth such a traumatic event for so many women? And why do more than 40% of births now end in caesarian section, the highest percentage in history? The answer is simple: because our culture teaches women to fear birth as a painful and unsettling experience. Fear causes three physical reactions in the body-tightening of the muscles, reduced blood flow to the birthing muscles, and the release of certain hormones-which increase the pain and discomfort of childbirth. This is not hocus-pocus this is science.
In this easy-to-understand guide, HypnoBirthing® founder Marie F. Mongan explodes the myth of pain as a natural accompaniment to birth. She proves through sound medical information that it is not our bodies but our culture that has made childbirth a moment of anguish. And when we release the fear of birth, a fear that is keeping our bodies tense and closed, we will also release the pain
