Los Angeles, Ventura, and Ojai HypnoBirthing® Classes

Your Serene Birth

HypnoBirthing®, the Mongan Method,  is a unique method of relaxed, natural childbirth education, enhanced by self-hypnosis techniques. It provides the missing link that allows women to use their natural instincts to have a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing experience. Emphasis is placed on pregnancy and childbirth, as well as on pre-birth parenting and the consciousness of the pre-born baby. As a birthing method, HypnoBirthing is as new as tomorrow and as old as ancient times.

About Bailey

The HypnoBirthing® Premise  

For most of their lives, women have been inundated with the negative stories of other women’s birth experiences. Everyone, from their mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends, and even strangers, wants to tell them the horrors of giving birth. They have been conditioned to believe that excruciating pain is associated with labor; and because of this, women today hold an unprecedented fear of giving birth. This extreme fear causes their bodies to become tense, and that tension prohibits their bodies from easily performing a normal physiological function. The result is exactly what they feared most--long, painful birthing or unnecessary intervention.

People who are drawn to this method of childbirth have long been searching for a way to give birth confidently and as calmly, safely, and gently as possible, whether they have chosen to birth in a hospital, a birthing center or at home. Until HypnoBirthing, this kind of birthing  almost seemed unattainable for the general population.

Through a very simple program of self-hypnosis and education, healthy, low-risk women, as well as women who need medical assistance because of special circumstances, learn to dismiss fear-based stories, misinformation, and birthing myths; and they are helped to see birth as normal. They learn to trust that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way that Nature intended.

'I am so grateful to have taken Bailey's hypnobirthing class. She is such a wonderful, generous, peaceful teacher. It was a beautiful way for me and my husband to connect before our birth. Bailey was always willing to support us even beyond what we did in the class to make sure we felt confident going into our birth. I know that everything we learned from the class helped us to have the amazing birth we always wanted. Thank you Bailey for making our experience so special.'

-Nadia Salamanca and Mikki Willis, Ojai, CA

'Giving birth to my first child was a harrowing experience. I labored at home for 30 hours and pushed for 12. Long story short, my dear son had a giant head and got stuck. Admittedly, I panicked and wore myself out early on. If it were not for 3 brilliant midwives, I would have certainly transferred and had a C-Section. I was so happy when it was all over but, it in the long run, it left me traumatized and fearful of having another child. When I got pregnant the second time, I decided to give Bailey's Hypnobirthing class a try, hoping for a more positive labor experience.  It made all the difference. Most importantly she taught me how to trust my body and relax. This had a profound effect on the birth of my second child. I faithfully used the Hypnobirthing techniques during labor and I am happy to report, it made for a wonderful and empowering experience. My total labor was only 5 hours and I only pushed 8 minuets. Big difference! I highly recommend this class to anyone who wishes to gain confidence in their ability to give birth naturally. Bailey herself is also impressively organized, very articulate and a source of calming energy.'

-Cassandra Jones and Mikael Jorgensen, Ojai, CA

'Bailey's class provided critical tools and coaching - but more than that - her commitment to us having an amazing birth experience was powerful. She is a gifted teacher, an amazing hypnotherapist, and an incredible, critical part of any birth. We used the practices she taught from pre-labor to the moment of birth and needed absolutely no drugs. Our baby was born aware, alert, and perfect. We are so grateful we took her class and will take it again should we choose to bring another life into this world.'

-Josh and Rebecca Tickell, Ojai, CA

'The  peace that I found through Bailey's class not only changed my pregnancy and birth experience, but my life as well. I feel free of the fears I didn't even know I was harboring, and felt excitement, rather than fear, when my birthing began. I have also noticed a beautiful calmness in my baby, which I largely attribute to the calm manner in which he was brought into this world.'

-Madeline, Ventura, CA

'Can I get an 'Ommm' for HypnoBirthing! What a normal, natural, beautiful, happy, and healthy way to experience your pregnancy and birth journey. Bailey helped me chill out and see this extraordinary life change in a new, and brighter light. I still listen to the 'Rainbow Relaxation' every night with my little one.'
