The second time giving birth, I came in more prepared, and I tried to do the things my mom told me she did while laboring with me which was essentially a form of self-hypnosis and deep relaxationand although it did help me stay in control of the pain, it did NOT take away the pain. I felt like if I experience pain then I must be doing something wrong. But if you have to have a C-section or epidural, I really don’t think that makes you less of a person, and shouldn’t make you feel guilty like the authors imply it should.

Sep 23, Tina rated it it was ok. First of all, who is to say that mammals don’t experience pain during childbirth only because they are quiet during it? I agree that language matters in cultivating a positive attitude, but I think Mongan renames way too much stuff. I believe it’s possible that someone can go so internal with their coping, but I don’t think it’s representative.

There is a marked contrast between HypnoBirthing deliveries and other natural births – for people who really practice, delivery is very peaceful. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. If you have the urge to push, that’s not natural but We I feel like this book sets women up to fail.

A bit or a hypnobirtbing outdated, but it’ll give you the nitty gritty facts about childbirth that Mongan glosses. T It would be nice to have a painless birth.


HypnoBirthing UK – self hypnosis – labour – natural childbirth classes

While I have other relaxation and visualization scripts that I prefer, those presented here are good and the suggestions appear to be consistent with having a positive mongna during labor. In the end, her message and techniques about relaxation are not bad. Sports scientists, CBT therapists, people on diets all know this.

I read this book a few months before giving birth the first time. HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience. The Rainbow Relaxation audio track that came with the book still puts me soundly to sleep whenever I listen to it. The Mongan Method by Marie F.

I waited to review this until after I had given birth-I figure beforehand would have just been speculation. The author puts forth an interesting philosophy, which is based on her own considerable experience – both personal and as a birthing ‘coach’, ‘instructor’, or whatever terminology you want to use – and the experience and observations of others. Here’s the problem, Mongan makes some generalized statements about “simple” women and “African” women that really put me off.

The rest of Mongan’s book encourages you to listen to your body’s signals telling you what to do; why should your urge to push be any different? Three examples of why I only gave this one star: I would recommend it as worth exploring for someone considering natural childbirth.

Perhaps if I had taken a series of the classes, I would have liked the techniques and it would have proven worthwhile.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie F. Mongan

Her chapter on the ‘history’ of childbirth pain was more painful, I think, than giving birth could ever be. I must confess, I hypnobirthjng read this book in its entirety.

And nothing she writes proves that it is fear that causes mqrie. This entire review probably falls under the category of “too much information. However, I do question her lack of citations for this history. Instead, we get a lot of birth politics, This is a misogynist, woman-blaming text, with bonus racism, classism and heterocentrism. It worked, because it does. I recall most of my labor as being painless. I might actually assign that chapter to my students as an exercise of finding everything wrong with it that they can.

I felt the baby just dropped out of me and you can tell. The actual practical content of this book consists of one short chapter on relaxation methods and one short chapter of visualisations.

Hypnosis is something we do all the time – the Mongan Method simply organises it into a programme for birth and adds that there’s simply no point in being scared of birth.

The concept of hypnobbirthing sounded like a good one to me to aid in the accomplishment of natural birth. One has nothing to do with the other. It didn’t help that she used “simple women” as the origins of the idea that birthing doesn’t have to be painful.
