Healthy pregnant women instinctively know how to birth, just as their bodies instinctively
know how to conceive, nurture and carry their babies.”

M. Mongan. Founder of HypnoBirthing®


Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner


HypnoBirthing® (The Mongan Method) is an internationally recognised program based on self hypnosis, relaxation and physical preparation for safe and easy childbirth. It eliminates fear and instills belief and confidence in women and their partners to easily achieve a natural birth.

HypnoBirthing® mothers are calm, joyful and in control. They generally have shorter and more effective labours, do not need pain killers and actually enjoy childbirth. The partners have a clear and essential role throughout

classes, labour and birth and their involvement is

vital during this life changing experience.


HypnoBirthing® babies are welcomed into a darkened, quiet room and loving environment. They are often so calm at birth that they do not cry. Mother and baby are both free from medications and the transition from womb to world is natural and gentle. Babies are born calm and alert, they sleep well and breast feed easily.



Olivia and her husband Jolyon undertook HypnoBirthing® classes and were overwhelmed by the positive results. After an easy, painless, drug-free labour, their healthy son Dash was born.

There was no need for the doctor or midwives to instruct or intervene, allowing the birth to occur privately and peacefully within the hospital setting. Olivia walked out of the labour room within an hour of birthing, baby Dash in arms.

For Olivia and Jolyon, the experience was calm and empowering, completely elevating all notions of what labour and birth can be.

Inspired by this experience and countless similar stories, Olivia undertook training to become a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner and now shares her valuable skills and knowledge with pregnant women and families through her own practice HYPNOMAMMA.

In 2012, after a short and natural labour, Olivia gave birth to their second son Ballad.

Another beautiful safe birthing experience.
