Welcome to cloud nine HypnoBirthing

HypnoBirthing mother and child

“My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a safe, satisfying birth for both her baby and herself - one she’ll not need to forget.”
(Marie F. Mongan, 1999)

My name is Alison and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist working as a HypnoBirthing Practitioner primarily in Edinburgh and East Lothian. If you would like to read a little more about me do check out BEST clinics main webpage.

Congratulations on your pregnancy, it is such a truly special and important time in your life and that of your baby. I am delighted that you are considering the Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing to support the pregnancy and birth of your baby.

“The original and still the best.”

The Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing® is the longest running community dedicated to using hypnosis in childbirth. It was founded in the United States in early 1989 by Marie “Mickey” Mongan. The Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing® is the pioneer and leader in birth education with hypnosis. Several decades and thousands of classes later, HypnoBirthing® is the most widely used childbirth hypnosis program in the world. Today, there are HypnoBirthing® practitioners in 46 countries around the world who are helping women become aware of the benefits of calm, instinctive birthing for themselves and their babies.

About HypnoBirthing

HypnoBirthing using the Mongan method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing.  HypnoBirthing teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner.  You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication.

You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing films showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can experience. I love watching these films and have added a link to one here that I think you may enjoy.

Daisy’s HypnoBirthing Story

HypnoBirthing teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles.

HypnoBirthing will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts.  With HypnoBirthing you will be aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.

A Mothers ExperienceA mother's experience...

It was so easy, that I didn’t think I could be far along already...........every time I felt a surge coming, I shut my eyes and made a humming noise that tailed off to just slow breathing/almost blowing out as the surge ended....
I got out of the pool and went to the bathroom, had two surges and felt my baby coming out on the 3rd surge!


Dads ExperienceA dad's experience:

Our beautiful daughter was eventually born with the aid of a birthing stool at 12.38pm. My wife did an amazing job and gave birth without pain-killers of drugs. That meant that when our baby was born, she was alert, calm and fed pretty much straight away. I instantly saw beyond the blood, vernix and the other stuff and I cut the cord without fear and with a sense of pride and calm that still makes me smile today. My daughter and I had skin to skin contact within five to ten minutes of the was amazing!!
