Hypnobirthing®: The Mongan Method – $395+HST

This fee includes the cost of course materials, the official HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method paperback, the course activity book, Rainbow Relaxation & Affirmation download card as well as the attendance of your birth companion.

HypnoBirthing® The Mongan Method is based on the belief that babies can be born into the world gently and joyfully, and that mothers give birth calmly and comfortably. Many women have no idea how their body’s are supposed to work in labour, and more importantly, how best to support their body’s ability to birth. Through education, breathing techniques, relaxation, visualization, self-hypnosis and more, this class will bring you closer to achieving your ideal birth experience. 

HOW IS THIS CLASS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PRENATAL CLASSES?

HypnoBirthing® classes are taught as a 4 week series, and each class is ~3 hours in length. SJ and Carol Anne are both Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioners and believe that this is one of the most comprehensive and all encompassing birth preparation courses available to families. ​Carol Anne and SJ teach this class together and students love that they get two perspectives and a combined 20 years of birth doula knowledge. Our classes are interactive, inspiring, fun and empowering. Expectant parents learn more about biology, birth options, and themselves, and they also make lasting friendships with their classmates.
