They are also trained on how to connect to their baby and are taught essential birthing positions. In addition, Mỹ An Sinh provides parents with information on safe pregnancy, birthing characteristics, postpartum care and how to deal with obstacles they might face during birthing to achieve their birth wishes.

Nga Burger-Nguyen – HypnoBirthingTM – The Mongan Method Practitioner

Nga lives with her husband and two young children in Holland. Her first birth experience was a far call from what she had imagined. She had a stressful time recovering from her birth injuries. Out of sheer desperation she chose HypnoBirthingTM and practiced it with her husband for her second birth. This time, even though her daughter was significantly heavier than her brother, she was born naturally in a surprisingly short time with virtually no pain and Nga recovered from the birth much faster. Nga soon found out that the techniques she learnt through HypnoBirthingTM also helped her remain positive and free from unnecessary worries which allowed her to positively focus on her family and her postpartum recovery.

The wonderful birth experience in her second birth was the reason why Nga decided to become a HypnoBirthingTM practitioner to bring this amazing childbirth method to Vietnam and oversea Vietnamese communities.

It is Nga’s ultimate dream to assist expectant parents and their babies a blissful and unforgettable time with their pregnancies and births. This wonderful experience is not limited to just pregnancy, it is carried throughout the entire labor and birthing process where at the end of it, a new life is born with love. A true Labor of Love.

You are taught the process of birth, possible obstacles and how to get through them to achieve the birth you envision.

Can I lose control or change my characteristics permanently under influences of hypnosis?

Hypnosis is not what you often think it is. It definitely doesn’t happen on a stage where you will be hypnotized to act on any request like what you seen on movies or read from books.

What you will learn is in fact “self-hypnosis” which assist you through childbirth calmly. To achieve this Mỹ An Sinh trains you on breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations and hypnosis script designed for pregnancy and birth. A woman on example can choose to focus solely on the sound of her breathing while visualizing her baby descent with every breath she draws.

My birth partner is not interested in taking the course with me, what can MyAnSinh advice us?

HypnoBirthing can be a wonderful way to connect with the baby before birth.

This is because the course gives them a clear idea about what their role in the birth process is and how they can help.

Upon completion of Mỹ An Sinh course I'll have a natural, pain free, drug free birth and fast recovery after birth?

It was very helpful for me to learn the Birth Companion's role and other techniques from Nga. During the birth of our daughter I was confident in assisting my wife through a rather long labor. We were both happy with the birth. It was a beautiful experience!


happy dad
Rienk K.Amsterdam, Holland

I'm used to be terrified of the prospect of facing my daughter's birth after listening to many traumatic birth experiences from other people.

During my pregnancy, Nga was very attentive in teaching me the essential breathing and relaxation techniques.

If I didn't experience it myself I would not believe that I could have the most of my 24 hours labor in such a gentle way.
