The concept of HypnoBirthing is not a new phenomenum. Marie Mongan, an award winning Hypnotherapist and Educationalist, is the founder of the HypnoBirthing® Institute. The course celebrates its 25th anniversary in November 2015 and has gained international recognition in 46 countries worldwide.


HypnoBirthing is more than just self hypnosis hypnosis for childbirth. It is a complete birth education programme that teaches simple but specific self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for a calmer, more comfortable birth experience.


Marie based and developed the programme following the techniques of an English Obstetrician, Dr Grantly Dick-Reid, a pioneer in the field of natural childbirth. His observations concluded that Fear creates Tension, and Tension creates Pain. Extreme pain is not a natural accompaniment to labour and birth.
