Pregnant women in the Las Vegas area now have a natural choice for comfort during their labor and birthing. The premier choice for childbirth education in southern Nevada is HypnoBirthing® - The Mongan Method. HypnoBirthing® is more than traditional prepared childbirth classes. Whether a hospital or home birth is planned, HypnoBirthing® offers women safer and gentler births by blending trust in the female body with the documented effectiveness of self-hypnosis (relaxation), guided imagery, visualization, special breathing and tension-releasing techniques. HypnoBirthing® teaches mothers to follow the lead of their body and baby and to use their own natural birthing instincts. Combined with sound information on the physical process of pregnancy, birth, and labor, it is no wonder that new parents everywhere are thanking their HypnoBirthing® educator for a calmer, more relaxed labor and birthing experience. HypnoBirthing® returns birth to the simplistic and pure event that nature intended. Serving the Las Vegas, Summerlin, and Green Valley/Henderson areas your HypnoBirthing® childbirth educator is Anne Swanson, BS, Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner and HypnoBirthing® mom.
Anne believes she was meant to teach HypnoBirthing®. She became pregnant in 2002 and began discussing pain management with her OB/GYN. She soon discovered that she would not be able to have an epidural, due to a posterior spinal fusion she had in 1998. This sent her on a frantic search for ways to “cope with the pain” and “natural childbirth techniques.” In her searching she came across HypnoBirthing® - The Mongan Method. She became completely intrigued and excited about the possibilities of birthing naturally with minimal to no discomfort. As she continued to research HypnoBirthing®, she became convinced that the philosophy was accurate. As she continued to educate herself about birthing she became awed and inspired to trust in her body, in her baby, and in nature. Anne used HypnoBirthing® to birth her daughter drug-free and in comfort! HypnoBirthing® is now her passion and she has faith that someday the majority of births will once again be returned to the tranquil, serene, and simple event that nature intended. Anne founded HypnoBirthing® Las Vegas in 2004 and is currently teaching in Las Vegas, NV. Anne’s higher education in Chemistry came through Northern Arizona University where in 1999 she received her B.S. Chemistry, graduating summa cum laude. She has been certified through the HypnoBirthing® Institute since 2003. She, her husband, and her daughter have lived in Las Vegas since July 2003.
