HypnoBirthing International courses


HypnoBirthing, The Mongan Method, is as much a philosophy as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free birth. 

This program teaches you, along with your birth partner, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. 

You will learn how to call upon your body's own natural relaxant, and therefore lessen, or even eliminate, discomfort and the need for medication. 

When you are properly prepared for childbirth and when the mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all mothers in nature. 

Through self-hypnosis, special breathing and visualisation techniques, hypnobirthing teaches you to release fear and to trust your body's ability to birth instinctively. 

Studies show that when a woman feels relaxed, safe and supported through childbirth, there is:

  • 50% reduction in the caesarean rate

  • 25% shorter labour

  • 60% reduction in epidural requests

  • 40% reduction in Syntocinon use

  • 30% reduction in analgesia use

  • 40% reduction in forceps delivery

Doing the hypnobirthing course with JodyAnn was by far the most valuable tool we picked up during pregnancy. We were very proactive educating ourselves on birth and postpartum, reading books, listening to podcasts and doing multiple birth workshops. In hindsight, if all we did was this course with JodyAnn we would have been just as prepared. The regular one-on-one (one-on-two) sessions were tailored to our specific birth plan, knowledge and emotional needs. The course for us was so much more than just hypnobirthing techniques. It was a holistic course including communication skills, physical support techniques (for pregnancy and labour), birth planning and preparation, labour and birth education, ritual and ceremony, and of course all the wonderful hypnobirthing tools and resources. My biggest take away from this course is that I already feel satisfied with my birth that is yet to come.

2hr HypnoBirthing Refresher

You can also book a 2hr HypnoBirthing Refresher course if you have done the HypnoBirthing International course in previous births (either with JodyAnn or a different accredited provider). 

The 2-hour refresher course is a private and individualised 1-on-1 session, leaning into whatever you and your partner feel you need.

The cost is $190 and the session can be done via Zoom or in person.
