Hypnobirthing

A comfortable, drug-free childbirth is possible with Hypnobirthing.


For more than 17 years, the Hypnobirthing Method, founded by Marie Mongan, M.Ed., M.Hy. (certified hypno-anesthesiologist) has been helping mothers learn to totally relax their bodies, increase the production of endorphins (the feel good hormones), and release the fear that causes their bodies to tense.


Fear and tension inhibit a woman’s ability to perform what is a normal physiological function-birth. Through relaxation, guided imagery, self-hypnosis, and special breathing patterns, women learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the same well-designed manner that occurs when animal mothers give birth.

When birthing mothers no longer hold the fear that pain must accompany birthing, they are able to remain relaxed and eliminate the production of constricting hormones and dysfunctional labor patterns that lead to medical interventions such as Pitocin, Cesarean births, and exactly what women fear most- long, painful births. With Hypnobirthing, a large majority of women report shorter, easier births, often free of discomfort.


With more than 2400 practitioners certified by the Hypnobirthing Institute, the concept is rapidly taking hold throughout the world. Today there are practitioners in more than 22 countries, including the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Germany, South Africa, and several Asian countries.


Locally, expectant mothers and their birthing companions can take Hypnobirthing classes in either group settings or privately through a series of five classes with Sara Rossi right here at Functionize Health. Included in the fee is a copy of the book, Hypnobirthing: a Celebration of Life by Marie Mongan, two self-hypnosis practice CDs, and numerous informational handouts. The next group course begins September 8th and space is limited.
