International Recognition

HypnoBirthing International (The Mongan Method) was founded over 30 years ago by Marie (Mickey) Mongan. Our program is now in 46 countries globally, and all our educators are certified by the HypnoBirthing® Institute. As a certified member of The HypnoBirthing® Institute, your certification is recognised nationally and internationally. You will receive our Gold Seal to display on your marketing material to show you are certified with the HypnoBirthing® Institute, furthermore you will be listed in the official Australian Directory.

The Gold Seal Approval assures the general public that the educator is of the highest standing and has passed their certification review and has agreed to the Codes of Ethics and Standards as set out by the HypnoBirthing® Institute. We are the most comprehensive program available and as such is recognised as the leading program here in Australia.

Important advice: HypnoBirthing has become a household name, and there are several ‘copy’ programs that have popped up here in Australia claiming to the be the official.

International Certification

The course consists of 3 components

  1. Introduction to Hypnosis for Birthing – 1.5 days face to face training (part of the 4 day training)
  2. Educator Certification Workshop – 2.5 days face to face training (part of the 4 day training)
  3. Birthing Basics – Home Study

After completing the dynamic training, a 4-day, 2-part Childbirth Educator Program consisting of the Introduction to Hypnosis for Childbirth and the Certification Workshop for HypnoBirthing, as well as the Birthing Basics Home Study, you will be required to complete reviews on each section of the training, as well as submitting a case study after working with 1 couple taking them through the 5 session program.

If you have previous certification in the Physiology of Birth (midwives and doulas), you will be granted RPL’s for that component of the training.

Your certification as a Gold Seal educator will be mailed to you from the HypnoBirthing® Institute once your reviews have been assessed. You will be required to recertify annually for a cost of $100 USD.

You will receive the Gold Seal Approval and logos to be used on all your marketing material, so families can recognise you as a Gold Seal Educator.
