HypnoBirthing® - The Mongan Method

Childbirth Classes and Doula Services

  Placenta Encapsulation   Birth Photography Essential Oils

Learn how to have a natural, gentle, calm, and comfortable birth!  We talk about all aspects of pregnancy, labor, and birth.  We watch videos.  We work together to write a birth plan and learn how to work with your birth companion and/or doula to get your care providers to stick to your birth plan.  We practice comfort measures, relaxation techniques, and visualization.    It is absolutely possible to have a beautiful, peaceful birth in a hospital setting and without any intervention!

Let me teach you how!
