Read what a couple had to say:

...Thanks very much for all the help with HypnoBirthing®-Mongan Method. I would definitely recommend it to other people having a baby as it really helped us achieve a calm and wonderful birth . The midwives at King Edward were really impressed with the way that we handled the birth and most of all how at peace I seemed despite being in advanced labour.”

An australian research study into birth outcomes using HypnoBirthing®-Mongan Method was conducted in 2012


Study background and aim:

A survey was carried out to investigate how Australian participants attending the HypnoBirthing®-Mongan Method programme between 2007 and 2010 compared to other studies, where only hypnosis was used during childbirth.


The average length for both stages of labour was shorter in the HypnoBirthing®-Mongan Method group compared to general population figures.
Caesarean section rates were lower, as was the use of gas and epidurals.
51% of participants did not use any pain medication at all and the overall discomfort level for labour and birth was 5.8 out of 10 with 32% of the participants scoring under 5.8, including two participants who recorded zero discomfort.

Women attending the HypnoBirthing®-Mongan Method programme demonstrated similar results to those found in other research in 
hypnosis for childbirth. However, most importantly the findings also demonstrated some added benefits of HypnoBirthing®™.

The majority of women reported feeling more confident, relaxed, less fearful, focused, and more in control. They also commented on the ease and comfort of labour and birth and the satisfaction of having their partners involved and supportive. The partners found that the HypnoBirthing®-Mongan Method sessions provided them with confidence and useful strategies on how to work together as a couple, enabling them to be more involved in the birthing experience.

Some women stated that:

The HypnoBirthing®-Mongan Method programme made them feel more connected and in tune with their body and furthermore the understanding about the mind-body connection helped on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
While others found that practising self-hypnosis and the breathing techniques beforehand made them feel more confident and prepared. Some women used the techniques they had learnt even though their births took a different path. In addition others said that they were using self-hypnosis in other areas of their lives—especially when they were experiencing stress.
The majority said that they would do HypnoBirthing®-Mongan Method again and would highly recommend it to other expectant mothers.
