HypnoBirthing®

​At Birth Your Way we invite you to pause for a moment to become aware that we are not born with the fear of birth. We are not born with the idea birth is painful. It is the stories we hear, see and read that determine our perception of birth. And this perception is, birth is painful. And expectation of pain brings about fear. However, stories that we hear and see are other’s people memories. Stories that we hear and see have nothing to do with how your birth will feel, emotionally and physically, for you.

It is our mind that, based on the stories it hears and see, creates doubt in the ability of our body to birth. It creates fear. And what happens to your body when you are “consumed with fear of birthing”? You body get tensed which nearly always causes our births to be painful.

At Birth Your Way we believe that using HypnoBirthing® techniques supports you in releasing fear of birth. With HypnoBirthing® you learn how to relax. With HypnoBirthing® you learn how to build positive expectations towards your birth so you will birth with confidence and calm. HypnoBirthing® will give you knowledge and confidence to move away from fear and to return to your birthing instincts. Instincts that you carry within your self and enable you to write your own positive and empowering birth experience.

My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will now the joy of truly safe, comfortable and satisfying birthing for herself and her baby.
– Marie Mongan
