Visualization helped get me through labor a little, but not hypmobirthing whole lot – the breathing exercises I learned elsewhere were MUCH more helpful. I did find an article that indicated that pushing may be contraindicated at least during the second stage of labor. I have major breathing anxiety stemming from lung complications from needing to be hypnobirthng with my first child so the counting could just be me. There are some concepts in this book I wholeheartedly agree with, and others I that I think are misguided.

Bradley does teach more varied coping techniques. I for hypnobirthinv, must giggle. It also gave me confidence in a woman’s body to birth naturally. You get what you put into it. This is a misogynist, woman-blaming text, with bonus racism, classism and heterocentrism. Considering that most of this book was poorly htpnobirthing and generally weak, I will choose to defer to the other sources. I would much more recommend a breathing course, and a course in ALL birthing techniques.

The actual “how-to” sections of the book felt muddy to me.

I was mostly quiet while giving birth, but I was quiet because it was hurting so much, and I felt like I was going to lose it if I let myself talk or scream or interact, in any way, with the outside mongann.

Your body knows what it’s doing – let it do it, and let someone else worry about the what ifs.

I didn’t want anyone picking it out of the garbage and accidentally reading this. Return to Book Page.

A little weird at the beginning but you gotta just let that go So, all these little anecdotes are really all beyond bogus and completely unconvincing to me. 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. Se 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.

Feb 24, Sally rated it liked it Shelves: No single medical procedure is going to determine personality, particularly in a pre-linguistic child. And so, for most of my teenage years I assumed that most other women who gave birth were just a little overly sensitive, imagining pain were in fact there wasn’t any.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie F. Mongan

Remember, ladies, any complications are your own fault. Is this just a “social construction”? She lost me in her overly simplistic, ill informed anecdotes. I no longer believe that to be true. Some experience pain-free labor; that was not the case with me!

Her reference to women leaving a hut, squatting against ghe tree without pain is overly simplistic, uninformed and reinforces racist images that exist about women from the over metuod countries in Africa.

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.

Further, hypjobirthing book came with a cd which she doesn’t clearly spell-out in the text how to use.

I personally was able to handle my first natural birth in a positive way, and I don’t think pain was the best word to use because it connotates that something was wrong, but it definitely was not comfortable. Basically they blame the mom for being tense and that’s why the baby is breech.


My mom described the feeling of contractions to me as a heavy truck hanging from a rope that is attached at your cervix, pulling down into a deep abyss of nothingness, but not painfully. We need to do and be so many tings before the baby is even born to qualify us as good mothers, from the choice of diet she, of course, has a whole chapter to say about that, tooto the choice of diaper, to the choice of hospital, to the choice of underwear, that I sometimes wonder if the reason not more women have more babies is simply that they are tired of feeling guilty and useless.

Also, err, if childbirth doesn’t hurt in and of itself, why hypnobirting need for deeper and deeper relaxation as labor progresses? But I think most women’s labor will amount to some kind of pain and discomfort. This another book that I feel tbe pregnant woman should read, even if she isn’t planning on using hypnosis or even having a natural birth. If a pregnant woman wants and needs to be pampered, “waited upon” and coddled, and buys into the concept that pregnancy is an abnormal conditional and she is “ill”, the attention that she gains during a troublesome pregnancy and a methid birthing can definitely make hypnoblrthing all worthwhile in her mind.


I wish I would have ordered the book elsewhere, I metod be calling iTunes for a refund. HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience.

That’s what happens when something the size of hypnobigthing watermelon comes out of a hole the size of a quarter. I do believe that this book helped me prepare for childbirth though.

I read this book a few months before giving birth the first time.
