HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie F. Mongan

If you hurt, that’s not natural but Western indoctrination. Does hypnobirthihg know if I can download it with the CD? I gave this book 3 stars because it truly helped me cope with and actually enjoy my childbirth, but I don’t agree with many aspects of the book.

Return to Book Page. I wish Hyonobirthing would have ordered the book elsewhere, I will be calling iTunes for a refund. Anyway, I think, listening to a good relaxation video and doing a yoga class will get you in a much more at-ease, confident state than reading this book. I read and re-read this book several times! To preface, I should say that I grew up being told by my own mother exactly what this author is saying, namely, that contractions during childbirth don’t hurt and tje giving birth is just a lot of pressure “down there”.

So, all these little anecdotes are really all beyond bogus and completely unconvincing to me. There exits a preponderance of strong, well informed research to support the effectiveness of relaxation and diminished stress hormones during life altering events. She proves through sound medical information t Childbirth is not something to be feared; it is a natural expression of life. Hypnosis is something we do all the time – the Mongan Method simply organises it into a programme for birth and adds that there’s simply no point in being scared of birth.

I didn’t want anyone picking it out of the garbage and accidentally reading this. Then her salvation came in the form of a letter.

Then I gave birth the first time, and I thought I had been lied to my whole life, because, oh man, did it ever hurt! But if you have to have a C-section or epidural, I mrthod don’t think that makes you less of a person, and fee make you feel guilty like the authors imply it should.


However, none of it was new to me and it wasn’t presented as well as in other sources like Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way.

Not only are most, if not all, of these stories offensive, but they are also completely unscientific. Considering that most of this book was poorly presented and generally weak, I will choose to defer to the other sources. My husband grew mogan on a farm. I couldn’t believe that you couldn’t even tell the women were in labor in her stories.

And it also adds a whole ton of guilt, guilt about feeling pain, guilt about having chosen the wrong practitioner, guilt about not doing things right, guilt about drugging up your baby with an epidural which, she says, is a terrible, terrible thing to do, making you an “unloving” mom before your baby is even born The actual “how-to” sections of the book felt muddy to me.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method

Sorry about this blob of a text, I’m too tired to clean it up. Ultimately, I’m not saying that hypnobirthing techniques don’t work, just that I found this book a poor source for learning them.

As a result, the amount of woman-blaming and hostility towards women inherent in this book is quite incredible. I was literally yelling at the book and went off on a first class mobgan to my husband about why I would fail this if I got it as an essay. Right next to me was another mum.

As proof for this claim she tells second-hand stories of “simple, uneducated, poor” women who give birth hy;nobirthing a bridge, or in a ditch during WW1, or “African” women simply squatting next to a wall and having their babies with great ease, and mammals who calmly give birth, without pain and screaming.

Everyone’s pain experience is different, and the interventions required to manage pain are different for everyone, and just telling someone that they don’t or shouldn’t be experiencing pain is one of the least effective things hypnobirthingg you can do.

Can we visualize this fact away? We are unable to find iTunes on your computer. This will allow your birthing muscles to fully relax. In other words, we will help you prepare for the birth your plan and want for yourselves and your baby, rather than the birth that someone else directs.

An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynacology, 9 Jan 16, Laura rated it did not like it.



That’s what this book is about. 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. It continually references you to take the classes, so it is more of an advertisement for them than a teaching tool of its own.

What I did find extremely helpful, though, were the breathing techniques and basically all of the explanations about how your body works itself through this natural process and what you can do to “stay out of the way”. Mortality rates during labour weren’t exactly brilliant pre-medical intervention, and Mongan doesn’t even make reference to this. While urged to practice them often, they are not taught well enough that I would know if I was doing them right or what Mongan even means by certain instructions.

Childbirth is not something to be feared; it is a natural expression of life. Childbirth without Fear Grantly Dick-Read. However, I do question her lack of citations for this history. Then the directions on how to properly breathe to achieve that meditative state only cause me more stress because I can’t do them properly hey, while your diaphragm is being pushed 2″ higher due to that baby right under it, take the deepest, slowest breath you’ve ever taken and expand the diaphragm all the way down into your pelvis!

Basically they blame the mom for being tense and that’s why the baby is breech.

The Mongan Method by Marie F. I believe that Mongan has probably made enough hypnobirtying off of the Hypnobirthing empire to hire a competent editor and fix this.

It Finally, it speaks only to wealthy women who have completely unrestricted financial choices about birth – she actually says that if you say you can’t afford something, then it’s your own fault that you’re poor, because, you know, the Secret.

With stories from women who have successfully used the tools in this book, and downloadable hypnosis and relaxation tracks. I would recommend it as worth exploring for someone considering natural childbirth.
