What is HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method?
Hypnobirthing is a method and a philosophy that helps people who are pregnant or trying to get pregnant in achieving a better birth through self-hypnosis, visualization, and relaxation. It is a childbirth education and preparation course that teaches the birthing person and their partner about the natural birthing process, how to plan to get the birth you desire, and how your partner can support you.
This is a 5 week course comprised of 2.5 hour sessions offered in-person or via live Zoom screen share sessions. The first session is held on the day and time you select, and subsequent sessions occur 1 week apart on the same day and time.
“The techniques, affirmations, deep relaxation & so much more that I learned through this course I know that my birthing day will be so calming & amazing. 10/10 I highly highly recommend taking this course with Serene to absolutely everyone.”
“I just can’t believe I waited until baby #3 to try this [HypnoBirthing].”
“After taking her course I felt empowered to advocate for myself and fully capable of facing any challenges birth may present. If you take the time to read the provided literature and practice the course is well worth the time and money spent.”
HypnoBirthing is an evidence-based method to provide better birth outcomes. Families who complete this childbirth education program experience better birth outcomes including:
Reduction in Caesarean Rate
Reduction in Epidural Requests
Reduction in Analgesia Use
Reduction in Forceps Delivery
Hypnobirthing is more than just a class… it is a journey to overcoming any fears you may have about birth, learning how your or your partner’s body is perfectly designed to birth, and being able to experience this life-changing transition with confidence, trust, and excitement.

Will I have a painfree birth if I take this course?
Although some women do experience pain-free, even orgasmic births, we cannot guarantee a pain-free birth. However, the techniques taught in this course help parents reach a deep level of relaxation to reduce tension and pain throughout their body. HypnoBirthing parents report less use of epidurals and other analgesic use, fewer interventions, and greater satisfaction with their births.
How long is the course?
HypnoBirthing® – The Mongan Method consists of 5 weekly sessions that are each 2.5 hours long.
The course is intentionally set to this schedule to allow us to fully educate parents on the physiology of birth, how to prepare mentally and physically, to learn how to advocate for yourself, and to allow time in between classes to practice the exercises we introduce.
Is HypnoBirthing only for "natural" births?
While HypnoBirthing has a commitment to educating women on instinctive birth physiology, the information and exercises we tackle in the course can be beneficial for any type of birth and even for life outside of birth. In fact, the HypnoBirthing curriculum is designed to help parents prepare to handle any unique turn their birth takes with confidence and grace.
