"HypnoBirthing helps women to become empowered by developing an awareness of the instinctive birthing capability of their bodies. 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. What's more, parents report that their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven't experienced birth trauma. HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience. In this book she shows women how the Mongan Method works and how parents they can take control of the greatest and most important event of their lives --Provide by publisher".

This method was far and away my choice for birthing. I had great success with it for both of my children. After doing the meditations and exercises daily for about 3 months (adding the Rainbow CD) leading up to my guess dates, I had no pain during labor and birth.

However, there is some very problematic and racist content. Some women feel this book shames and blames them if they do experience a painful birth. I still highly recommend this method and hope a new edition of this book will take reader feedback into account.
