Marie Mongan, founder of the global HypnoBirthing movement, is coming IN PERSON to Jamaica to train new HypnoBirthing Practioners in January!!
The dates are Tuesday 20th January to Friday 23rd January, venue: Crowne Plaza, Manor Park, Kingston 8, and the price of the course is $650 US. To book your place now, call the HypnoBirthing Institute office on +1 353 561 4296.
If you aren’t a birthing professional you will also need to take a ‘Birthing Basics’ home study course for an additional $50.
I passionately believe in the power of HypnoBirthing to help people have better natural births here in Jamaica and am delighted at the prospect of more people teaching it! And with a third baby due very soon, I won’t be able to teach it myself very much next year – and expectant mums need to know about it!
Business brings more business
If you’re wondering how much business is out there – all I know is the more I teach it, the more peoiple I get ringing asking for classes. So the more the merrier! Also – people are often asking me for classes at times I don’t want to do – saturdays for example, or mornings – so I think there is plenty of work out there for qualified teachers. Plus of course, I am only offering classes in Kingston – there is definitely a call for lots more classes here, but also in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios!
Have a read of the ebrochure below and drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in starting a fascinating new job as a Certified HypnoBirthing Practitioner. You can teach it as often or as infrequently as you like.

HypnoBirthing is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing and stress free undisturbed birthing. HypnoBirthing teaches women and birthing companions the art and joy of experiencing birth in a safe, more comfortable manner for themselves and their babies. Through guided imagery and self-hypnosis women learn how to call upon their bodies’ own natural endorphins and thus eliminate or greatly reduce the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when the mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with women in other cultures and with all other creatures.
You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing® videos showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour, as they experience safe, gentle birth – free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome and free of unnecessary interruption. HypnoBirthing teaches a woman how to release all prior programming about birth, to free herself of limiting thoughts and emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and resistant muscles, and to trust her body and work with the flow and rhythm of her labour.
HypnoBirthing helps all women, including those who are high-risk, to rediscover their natural birthing instinct, and birth more comfortably. Mums are awake, aware, and fully in control, but deeply relaxed as they birth their babies into the world.
“According to physiological law, all natural, normal functions of the body are achieved without peril or pain. Birth is a natural, normal physiological function for normal, healthy women and their healthy babies. It can, therefore, be inferred that healthy women, carrying healthy babies, can safely birth without peril or pain.” Dr. Jon Dye, Easier Childbirth, Buffalo, 1891

Attendance at a HypnoBirthing Practitioner Certification Workshop does not automatically equate to certification. Each candidate must submit a successfully completed review of the program following the course.
Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® respects birth as a natural extension of the love and sexuality of a man and a woman; therefore, we believe birth is not about doctors, nurses, midwives or childbirth educators. It’s about mothers AND fathers and babies – FAMILIES. Our role is to assist by cultivating respect for the rights and wishes of families to bring their babies into the world in a gentle, calm and undisturbed manner. It’s about helping women learn to call upon their natural birthing instincts. It’s about inspired parents, learning to take responsibility for their own births by actively seeking the right care provider. It’s about empowered parents, welcoming their babies into the world in a “Celebration of life”.

The HypnoBirthing® Premise
For most of their lives, women have been inundated with the negative stories of other women’s birth experiences. Everyone, from their mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, and even strangers, wants to tell them the horrors of giving birth. They have been conditioned to believe that excruciating pain is associated with birth; and because of this, women today hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth. This extreme fear causes their bodies to become tense, and that tension prohibits their bodies from easily performing a normal physiological function. The result? -exactly what they feared most – long, painful birthings.
People who are drawn to this method of childbirth have long been searching for a way to help women give birth as calmly, safely, and gently as possible. Until HypnoBirthing, it almost seemed unattainable.
Through a very simple program of self-hypnosis, ultimate relaxation and education, women learn to work through fear-based stories and misinformation, and they are helped to see birth as normal. They learn to trust that their bodies know exactly how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way that Nature intended.
