Dad’s Perspective on Calm HypnoBirthing® Birth of Leon


Leon born into water at Nambour Hospital 25 January 2014

“As a male I would like to think that I have everything under control most of the time. At first I was a bit sceptical about the benefits of HypnoBirthing® however having completed the course and having seen the outcomes during labour I can’t speak highly enough of the value that this course provides to the prep for the big day.

HypnoBirthing® helped me feel ready for the birth of our son and I felt confident that I could support Franzi as much as possible. The course enabled us to have a plan for the birth and we learned to relax and focus on the birth experience we wanted. It was informative and fun and helped me bond with our baby even before birth, too.

When the big day finally came we were both so excited and there was no fear because we had a plan. And everything went according to our plan. I could help Franzi during labour with massages, breathing techniques and helpful prompts and it was so good to know what to do or say! I feel I had a part in Leon’s birth and wasn’t left out of control. I can only recommend Carrie as a teacher, too. We had a great course with her and the result was a great birth experience, completely natural without medication and a very happy baby.

Leon was very alert from birth on, he doesn’t cry much and seems well balanced. To me the HypnoBirthing® Mongan Method techniques make absolute perfect sense and I think they should be integrated in all birth preparation courses. Looking back I wouldn’t change a thing!”
