HypnoBirthing® offers the tools for a calm and comfortable birth.
It equips you with the knowledge to make confident and informed decisions and to empower you through pregnancy, birth and beyond. It’s a philosophy of preparing both your mind and your body for a soft and serene birth experience.
The Mongan method of HypnoBirthing® is the original.
Created by Marie Mongan over thirty years ago, with the intention to challenge the idea that birth is painful, putting into question the fear and the stress that the mother’s body has to go through.
You and your birthing partner will learn the importance of the mind-body connection and how fear can affect your body and your baby. You will be introduced to the practice of deep relaxation and equipped with tools to use during labour, birth, and as new parents.
No matter how you imagine your birth experience HypnoBirthing® is for you.
Whether you are hoping for a totally natural, drug-free birth, or you’d just like some amazing skills and techniques to help you cope with the early stages of labour before pain-relief medication becomes available, HypnoBirthing® is for you.
Will HypnoBirthing® make me cluck like a chicken?
If clucking like a chicken makes your birth experience fun, I certainly won’t stop you! But HypnoBirthing® won’t be the cause of it.
Hypnosis isn’t how it’s usually portrayed on screen. Often when we think of hypnosis we think of stage hypnosis, something that’s used for entertainment.
I can promise you that in HypnoBirthing® there are no pocket watches swinging, finger-clicking or chickens clucking.
Perhaps, not as amusing, but far more useful, we teach self-hypnosis to achieve a deep state of relaxation, but with a heightened state of mental awareness. You always remain in total control but will be deeply relaxed, free of physical and emotional tension.
Will it help me have a perfect birth?
There is no such thing as a perfect birth, and although I wish could, neither I nor the HypnoBirthing® program can guarantee that you will have one.
Every birth is different because every mum and every baby are different.
While there is so much we can do to prepare for birth, every birth is unique. Sometimes things are straightforward and sometimes they are not.
With a HypnoBirthing® education, you will be prepared, relaxed, and confident, no matter what happens on your birth journey.
You will have the knowledge to make informed decisions and learn how to work with your birthing partner as a team to create a truly positive birth experience, where both partners feel in control and empowered.
I don’t know what’s best for you and your family, but you do.
As a HypnoBirthing® educator, I don’t have an agenda other than making sure you are prepared to have a calm and confident birth. I will not tell you how I think you should birth your baby.
No matter what your birth preferences are, whether you want to birth in a hospital, at home, in a pool, in a car, singing show tunes, or on the top of a mountain. Additionally, it makes absolutely no difference to me whether you have an epidural, a belly birth, or a free birth on the beach.
What matters to me is that you feel informed, confident and that you and your birth partner can create a safe environment for you and your baby.
I want your birth partner to be empowered and involved too so that you are both able to feel connected with your baby both before and after your baby is born. You are the people making the best decisions for you and your baby and I want you to trust in yourselves.
No matter what, you have my support every step of the way.

My fear of enclosed spaces
I saw Judi to help me with several issues, in particular, my fear of enclosed spaces. Judi put me at ease from the very first session and I like the way she explains about the brain and how hypnotherapy works. I never imagined how much Judi’s sessions would help me and I have the added bonus of a recording I can listen to whenever I need to relax.
I have recommended Judi to lots of people I know.
