What is HypnoBirthing®? The Mongan Method

HypnoBirthing® is a rewarding, relaxing, stress-free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentility, calm and joy. When a mother is properly prepared for birthing physically, mentally, and spiritually, she can experience that sort of joy, birthing her baby in an easier, more comfortable, and often, even pain-free, manner. Through a well-though-out program of deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, special breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations, and education, HypnoBirthing® returns to a woman the art of birthing in a way that allows her to summon her natural birthing instincts and to birth her baby in safety and with ease.

    • Chelsea is not only an incredible human being but such an amazing support to have by your side. Before I met Chelsea, I was nervous and unsure about my natural vbac plans. She made my husband and I feel so empowered during my pregnancy and because of this I feel that’s why we were so successful with my vbac. She provides all the tools and support you could possibly need. I highly recommend her!!
    • Birth Doula, Hypnobirthing, New Jersey Doula
      Chelsea provides excellent HypnoBirthing classes. She is knowledgeable, and so supportive of the specific needs of each and every Mama. I can't recommend or thank her enough, these classes are exceptional preparation for a fear-free birth. She continues to check up on us, even months after our baby's birth, and genuinely cares about all the Mama's she meets.
    • Chelsea was an excellent instructor for HypnoBirthing®.  I was sure I was going to use an epidural and have been very anxious.  Afterward, I feel confident to attempt a drug free birth plan! I would recommend Chelsea to any expecting mother for this course and as a doula!  I'm looking forward to continuing my birth journey with her.  I give her 5 gold stars and hope to have a second child so I hire her again!  Excellent!!!!!
