"The Lord called me
before I was born
While I was in
my mother's womb
He named me."
Isaiah 49:1

Welcome to
Inland HypnoBirthing®

A woman’s birth story stays with her for life. HypnoBirthing®, the Mongan Method can help make it a joyous, gentle and positive experience. HypnoBirthing® is a comprehensive approach to pregnancy and birth. In the absence of fear and special circumstances birth truly can be calm, comfortable and empowering.  I’m Mary Long and I would be honored to be a part of this exciting time in your life by introducing you to HypnoBirthing.


You learn to:

  • Take control of your mind & not allow it to go into the fear state
  • Trust your body & baby. They know how to birth.
  • Be informed on choices & recognize you have choices. It’s your birth!
  • Feel connected to your partner, your body & your baby.
  • Be better supported by your birth companion

If your desire is an all natural birth, a medically managed birth, or something in between, HypnoBirthing® gives you all the tools you need to birth with confidence. Since 2006, I have helped hundreds of families achieve their birthing dreams. As a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator I specialize in pregnancy, birth and fertility issues.
