Founder of HypnoBirthing®
Marie (Mickey) Mongan, HypnoBirthing® Institute Director and Founder of HypnoBirthing®, created the HypnoBirthing® Program in 1989. Mickey’s background is one of total dedication to the education of women. Her teaching and counseling career spans many years and includes being a Business Education and English Department Head on the high school level; the Dean of a women’s college; and later, the owner/director of a career business school for executive assistants, always working with young women and young mothers.
She developed her philosophy of calm and gentle birthing early in life and based the HypnoBirthing® Program on the theories forwarded by doctors Grantly Dick-Read, an English obstetrician, and Jonathan Dye, a family physician from Buffalo, New York. More recently, the theories of Dr. Gregory White of Chicago (husband of the founder of the La Leche League) have served to buttress the HypnoBirthing® philosophy.
The HypnoBirthing® program was originally developed for the birth of Mickey’s first grandson; and in the years that have followed, it has drawn thousands of birthing families, birthing professionals, counselors, and hypnotherapists to her vision because of the excellence and high standards of the HypnoBirthing® program content.
