HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method Book

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method Book (4th Edition)

You will turn to HypnoBirthing® book again and again. In this easy-to-read-and-understand guide to birthing, Marie Mongan explodes the myth of pain as a natural accompaniment to childbirth and offers, at last, the answer to eliminating the anguish of labor. This book, the textbook for HypnoBirthing®  childbirth classes, will guide you through the philosophy and techniques of normal,      gentle birthing.

You and your partner will learn to use self-hypnosis, guided imagery, and special breathing techniques that can help to bring about a shorter, easier, and more joyful birthing, free of harmful drugs for you and your baby. You and your baby will birth in a more comfortable manner. You will be awake, alert, and fully in control. The HypnoBirthing® book will show you the way.
