Those first 5 minutes were crucial later, though, when I was in I read this book a few months before giving birth the first time. Why the need for an imaginary “endorphine glove” with the power to numb your abdomen?

The gold seal standard in Child Birth Education. I also agree that it makes no sense for childbirth to work as ‘badly’ as it does in our society today – there is no excuse for the high number of cesarean births, epidurals, epesiotomies, and other standard interventions.

And why do more than 40 percent of births now end in caesarian section, the highest percentage in history? Sports scientists, CBT therapists, people on diets all know this.

Jul 25, Rebecca rated it did not like it. Three examples of why I only gave this one star: Natural birthing is amazing, but it isn’t the hypnibirthing walk in the park that Mongan makes it out to be. Seeing is very much believing and I can honestly mehtod I’m blown away everything I’ve read and seen so far surrounding this approach to metbod childbirth. She claims in her book that the “urge to push” is a completely conditioned response and does not actually exist.

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. In other words, if it’s not what they’re wanting, why would they “go there”? I’ve just finished reading this booking in preparation to support my friend who is using hypno-birthing for the birth of her baby in the Summer; we are also attending hypnobirth clases.


In HypnoBirthing, we doan have all dees stuff, and deliberately so. This stance of blaming the victim goes against everything in the psychological literature relating to pain management.

The best that can happen is that you have a better birth because of it. Two, it exposes the role of the Hypnobirtthing No matter where you stand on the natural-vs-medicated birth divide, there is some great info in this book. The concept of hypnobirthing sounded like a good one to me to aid in the accomplishment of natural birth.

There are few references in the book, and the majority of the citations at the end are references to other books rather than to scholarly works. I was not tense during my 1st pregnancy and I am hypnobirthinf tense for my second.

That she was not alone. In she became the first woman ever to receive the highest award given by the National Guild — the Rexford L. If you already haven’t stopped reading, I apologize. Yet to an extent I came away from both births somewhat dissatisfied.

In fact, hurt and pain were an under-statement, I felt.


I read this book a few months before giving birth the first time. 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. Your body knows what it’s doing – let it do it, and let someone else worry about the what ifs.

It helped me learn how to relax thro I must confess, I didn’t read this book in its entirety. So why not prepare for the best?

But it seems to be about selling her patented courses and CDs more than actually being of any help. I’m just as much the mother of my epidural son as my hypnobirthed daughter. I might actually assign that chapter to my students as an exercise of finding everything wrong with it that they can. I no longer believe that to be true. I have thought about how I would handle the unexpected during this pregnancy, and I feel more calm being mentally prepared for those situations.


This is a load of crap. The second time giving birth, I came in more prepared, and I tried to do the things my mom told me she did while laboring with me which was essentially a form of self-hypnosis and deep relaxationand although it did help me stay in control of the pain, it did NOT take away the pain. Mortality rates during labour weren’t exactly brilliant pre-medical intervention, and Mongan doesn’t even make reference to this. Right next to me was another mum.

Open Preview See a Problem? I had used the Bradley Method and found that it left me with a profound fear of hospital birth and intervention and taught that birth is excrutiatingly painful. It continually references you to take the classes, so it is more of an advertisement for them than a teaching tool of its own.

Hypnobirthing The breakthrough natural approach to safer, easier, more comfortable birthing – The Mongan Method, 3rd Edition Marie Mongan. I This is the fourth or fifth time I have read this book.

I wish I’d had access to this information years ago and I feel elated that women do have access to it now; that they can take and use this information to transform beyond all recognition the birth experience they share with their babies as they arrive ‘earth’ side: This book only deals with the fantastical and rare time where women pop out a baby under an hour all while singing Kum-bay-ya and having multiple orgasms in a kiddie pool.

Mongan’s recommendation that women not be told the problems that can arise during birth also disturbed me. The book gives a brief history of the way birth has evolved to become a more medical event and how fear has crept into the process unnecessarily.
