I was then surprised when some of the techniques worked really well. You really need hypnobirthnig work with a partner and make sure that they know how to help you to find your deep relaxation if you lose your concentration. I skipped all those parts. Additionally, I appreciate that her goal is to help support pain free delivery.

I did find an article that indicated that pushing may be contraindicated at least during the second stage of labor. This book is great This book pissed me hypnpbirthing when it came to describing moms of breech babies. I did find many similarities – hypnosis in this sense is little different from how Bradley Method talks about relaxation.

In other words, if it’s not what they’re wanting, why would they “go there”? And nothing she writes proves that it is fear that causes pain. The HypnoBirthing exercises – positive thinking, relaxation, hypnobigthing, breathing and physical preparation — will lead to a happy and comfortable pregnancy, even if you are currently unsure of an intervention-free birth. Your body knows what it’s doing – let it do it, and let someone else worry about marif what ifs.

This is a misogynist, woman-blaming text, with bonus racism, classism and heterocentrism.

Feb 24, Sally rated it liked it Shelves: Thanks a lot there, my buddies in the Vatican, for freaking out generations of pregnant mamas! Why is it that no one would ever run a marathon if they hadn’t been training both mentally and physically but we think it is okay to go into birth completely unprepared? Sorry about this blob of a text, I’m too tired to clean it up. Even more puzzling, why do parents accept the negative premise that birth is a dangerous, painful ordeal at best or a medical calamity at worst?


Thanks for telling us about the problem. But it did monvan the whole experience easier and more peaceful, at least up to a certain degree. Sep 04, Rima added it.

People who like to pretend that childbirth is a piece of cake. This stance of blaming the victim goes against everything in the psychological literature relating to pain management. Jul 25, Rebecca rated it did not like it. Jan 27, Headle10 rated it it was amazing.

Oct 18, Nafee rated it really liked it. The rest of Mongan’s book encourages you to listen to your body’s signals telling you what to do; why should your urge to push be any different?

Therefore, I feel if I tried to practice the techniques as outlined in the book, it would be a waste of time.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie F. Mongan

Her chapter on the ‘history’ of childbirth pain was more painful, I think, than giving birth could ever be. She doesn’t want to bog mothers down with terminology that will freak them out.

Jan 16, Laura rated it did not like it. I’m not sure I recommend this book above any other particular method of natural birthing, but it has really worked for me twice now, and I’m expecting it to work again in a few months.

Moongan, I find it a bit offensive that the premise of this book is that if you feel pain in childbirth, it is either because you fear the pain I didn’t, honestly or because somehow you secretly WANTED the pain so that everyone would give you attention.


The mongn simple primitives speaking in broken English” she presents as totally real people she’s worked with made me die a little inside. I combined this with classes from a HypnoBirthing practitioner. I’ve had three children monfan, two of those VBAC’s, back when one had to fight to get them.

The one that posits that if you have cancer or were born in a war-torn fourth world country, it’s because your thoughts attracted it, while hypnonirthing the rich and healthy deserve it because they thought positive? And I almost lost a foot in a car wreck, and have broken more bones than is really normal, so I’m pretty familiar with pain.

However, I do question her lack of citations for this history. But putting that aside aside – does the technique work? Jun 30, Jill Miskin rated it amrie it Shelves: So instead of prepping mothers with a lot of the science of childbirth, she glosses over a lot of the facts in favor of reminding you, often, that it isn’t supposed to hurt. Why is it that no one would ever run a marathon if they hadn’t been training both mentally and physically hypobirthing we t This another book that I feel every pregnant woman should read, even if she isn’t planning on using hypnosis or even having a natural birth.

I wanted a different perspective on labor and delivery and I wanted my second child to be born in peace not fear. But Hypnobirtuing think most women’s labor will amount to some kind of pain and discomfort.
