Second Birth Was Best Thanks to HypnoBirthing®
I just wanted to take the time to thank Marie for writing the fantastic book ‘HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method’.
A month ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Helena, my second child, at a birth center at The Canberra Hospital in Canberra, Australia.
After a panicked, fearful and painful first labour with my son, I was in search of a new approach to giving birth. I didn’t find your book until one month before my due date, and by this time it was too late for me to take part in a HypnoBirthing class, however the information I learned from reading your book, and practicing the techniques in the weeks leading up to her birth were invaluable. Helena was born intervention and drug free in a calm, peaceful environment, with the help of my husband and midwife, and I will be forever grateful to you for providing me with the tools to create such a wonderful environment and mindset for labour. It was a joyful experience, and I believe that by helping me to relax both during labour and leading up to it, it has contributed to my peaceful and contented little daughter, and to my quick recovery. I continue to use the relaxation techniques I’ve learnt now that I am the parent of two small children.
Thank you again – I will be recommending your techniques to my family, friends, and hopefully one day my own daughter.
