Evidence Based Program

The HypnoBirthing International program is evidence based and recommended by Australian hospitals, obstetricians, midwives and health professionals. You can take confidence from these results and that our program is the only researched and evidence-based HypnoBirthing program in Australia and worldwide. The program is running in 8 Australian hospitals with more hospitals starting up programs, because of the significant reductions in the need for chemical inductions, pain medications, c-sections, epidurals, and because it is recognised as the Gold Standard of Childbirth Education.

HypnoBirthing International is the official HypnoBirthing training centre in Australia, where we live and breath the Mongan Method. With proven techniques and wonderful success stories, we are so proud to teach our trainees the Gold Standard of HypnoBirthing that is internationally accredited throughout 46 countries!
