Publisher's Summary

HypnoBirthing has gained momentum around the globe as a positive and empowering method of childbirth. Here's why: HypnoBirthing helps women to become empowered by developing an awareness of the instinctive birthing capability of their bodies. It greatly reduces the pain of labor and childbirth; frequently eliminates the need for drugs; reduces the need for caesarian surgery or other doctor-controlled birth interventions; and it also shortens birthing and recovery time, allowing for better and earlier bonding with the baby, which has been proven to be vital to the mother-child bond. What's more, parents report their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven't experienced birth trauma.    

HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience. In this audiobook, she shows women how the Mongan Method works and how parents can take control of the greatest and most important event of their lives.   

So, why is birth such a traumatic event for so many women? And why do more than 40 percent of births now end in caesarian section, the highest percentage in history? The answer is simple: because our culture teaches women to fear birth as a painful and unsettling experience. Fear causes three physical reactions in the body - tightening of the muscles, reduced blood flow to the birthing muscles, and the release of certain hormones - which increase the pain and discomfort of childbirth. This is not hocus-pocus - this is science.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Good concept, slow reader

wife is super into doing this for our birth. I hope it works out. The reader reads very slow on this, so I recommend playing it at 1.1x speed. It does NOT sound sped up at this speed.

Gave up after 7 chapters of no useful information

It was all storytelling and trying to sell a particular philosophy with no actual useful advice given. Maybe I would have gotten to it eventually, but I was starting to get way too annoyed with the author.

For all expecting people

This book is for everyone expecting a baby. Regardless of how you wish/plan to birth (natural, epidural, csection). Explore pregnancy and birth from the perspective that growing and birthing a baby is a normal physiological process. When fear is absent from birth, how does that change the outcome and how to go about addressing/eliminating those fears. A MUST read!

A must read for expectant mothers

As a first time expectant mother I soaked up every word of this book. it is so wonderful to have such positivity around birthing and to be able to equip myself with knowledge to empower myself that woman can easily achieve natural calm births.
