“My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a safe, satisfying birth for both her baby and herself—one she’ll not need to forget.”

Marie F. Mongan, 1999

PLEASE only happy stories… My baby is listening.

The HypnoBirthing® Advantage

  • 1. Eliminates the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome before, during and after birthing.

  • 2. Reduces and often eliminates the need for chemical anesthesia, episiotomy, and other interventions.

  • 3. Lessens fatigue during labor, leaving the mother fresh, awake and energized as she brings

  • 4. Shortens the thinning and opening phase of labor by several hours and allows the birthing mother to utilize the natural pulsations of her body to breather her baby down to the crowning sate, rather than pushing for long, exhausting periods of time. Reduces risk of pelvic floor damage.

  • 5. Brings the mother, the baby and the birthing companion together in a wonderful prenatal

  • 6. The birthing companion is an integral part of the birthing, not an onlooker.

  • 7. Special breathing almost entirely eliminates postnatal discomfort and “baby blues”.

  • 8. Babies are better adjusted and happier, resulting in better eating and sleeping routines.

  • 9. Mothers don’t run the risk of hyperventilating from shallow breathing.

  • 10. Birthing is returned to the safe, beautiful, peaceful experience that Nature intended.

Parent Testimonials:

“When I found out I was pregnant my first thought was, ‘How on earth am I going to give birth? There is no way I can do that, it’s too painful!’ A girlfriend of mine told me about Hypnobirthing and I was instantly excited. Here was a way to give birth naturally and without running the risks of complications associated with epidurals and other medications. The more I read about it, the more I wanted to do it. People love to tell you their terrible/scary/painful birth stories, so that’s all you ever imagine the experience to be (why do people insist on scaring pregnant woman!?) Hypnobirthing taught me that it’s not like that at all. Giving birth does not have to be scary or painful, it’s all about how you use your mind to change your perception of it. Hypnobirthing showed me how to calm my mind, visualize what my body was going through, and above all, relax. That was the most important thing I could do, I just had to relax, let go of the fear I had, and let my body do what it was made for.”

“I have never thought of myself as ‘spiritual’ or in tune with my body. I’m terrible when it comes to trying to meditate or even concentrate on that matter. I am also a huge sissy and have no pain tolerance.”

“Laurie was amazing. She was so wonderful through everything. She spent months practicing with me, teaching me her techniques for breathing, affirmation, and visualization. She made me MP3s of her affirmations that I listened to every day. I played the Rainbow CD every night, practicing my breathing and relaxation. She provided material to read about additional things I could do to make the birthing experience easier (perineal massage) and above all, special.”

“She was even there when I had my son, keeping me calm and coaching me through. I was able to visualize my baby making his way, using my breath to guide him down. I imagined every contraction (or surge as we called it) as a wave I could float over. My actual labor was about 2 hours, I pushed for about 30 minutes and then it was over. No screaming, no crying, no tears of pain (only happy tears) I had a beautiful and healthy baby and I know I could not have done it without Laurie and her technique.”
