The Gold Standard of Childbirth Education
Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® is a simple, straightforward program, thoughtfully developed over the years to remind mothers of the simplicity of birth itself. Just as the majority of birthing women do not need interventions and procedures for safe and healthy birth, they do not need a complex set of exercises and scripts to prepare themselves for peaceful, calm and comfortable birthing. The birthing body and the baby know just what to do for most women.
Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® is designed to teach women to trust in Nature's way of birth and to relax and let their bodies do what is needed. By practicing a few key techniques, mothers program their minds and condition their bodies to birth easily. When it comes to programming and conditioning, variety is not necessarily a good thing. Repetition is what gets the best result.
In Central Ohio Sharon Gourlay has been teaching HypnoBirthing® since 2006. She has taught over 250 families this gentle and calm approach to childbirth. Besides teaching HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Education, Sharon is also certified as a Hypnotherapist, HypnoBirthing® Fertility Consultant, HypnoBirthing® Infant Massage Instructor, and a Trained Birth Doula. She is familiar with the local Central Ohio birthing choices, providers, facilities, and complementary options.

Sacred Beginning HypnoBirthing Classes
I cannot express how amazing our classes were for us! Not only did my partner and I both learn valuable tools for birth I also grew as a person in ways I didn't know I needed to. As a result of this class I feel confident and empowered and very much looking forward to the birth experience I want for myself, my partner, and my baby!

From Fertility to Pregnancy, Labor to Birth, and Postpartum, Hypnosis is helpful for the entire birthing year. Have you ever daydreamed, meditated, got caught up in a book, or drove somewhere without remembering how you got there? This is the state of hypnosis! Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and a state of focused mental concentration. By relaxing the conscious mind while opening the subconscious mind we are able to talk to reprogram targeted issues and bring positive change. There are many different conditions that hypnosis can assist. As a clinical hypnotherapist I am prepared to support and help you achieve the birth you seek

Lianne Recay's Inspirational Words
No words can express how much you helped me through labor and birth. Your love, passion, dedication, knowledge, acceptance, and peace got through to me and I am forever grateful! I listened to your recordings over and over and loved every second. They took me to amazing places! I was confident, brave and full of peace the day Jack was born and you contributed to his wonderful birthday! He is a beautiful calm and chill baby. I hope you get to meet him soon!! Thank you and love to you! 2013
Melissa Paxton's Inspirational Words
I do want you to know that I had a much better birth experience this time. I believe, as a result of the hypnotherapy techniques that you taught me, that I was able to control the blood-flow that had caused a problem in the past. Therefore, I had much less bleeding postpartum and my recovery time was also much shorter. I actually felt well enough to truly enjoy the bonding time for the first few days, up to week, after Fisher was born. My previous births resulted in so much blood-loss that I was down for several days after birth. I must say that I have always been a "believer" in the power of the mind. However after this experience, I truly believe in the power of hypnosis. Thank you so much for your help. You will forever be in my heart ♥".2013
Katie Beard's Inspirational Words
I did not have a doula for the birth of my first child and ever since I wished I had. I didn’t realize how valuable it would be to have a support person in addition to my husband. When we began planning for our second baby, I knew right away that I would want a doula. We knew Sharon from taking her Hypnobirthing® class in preparation for the birth of our first child and were thrilled to find out she was now a doula as well. She was wonderful! She took the time to get to know us and talk about how we hoped this birth would proceed. On the day of, she did exactly what we needed her to do. She offered ideas of comfort measures when I needed them and talked me through the most intense contractions. She was supportive and helped to reassure me that I was doing a great job. I am so pleased with how the birth went and I believe I owe a lot of that to Sharon’s calming, confident presence. 2013
