For years, there have been anecdotal reports that children born using HypnoBirthing (The Mongan Method) are particularly calm and content babies.
This research sought to test that theory and determine whether there were any discernible differences between children whose parents used HypnoBirthing, and those whose parents did not.
A short online survey was used to compare the personality traits of children born using HypnoBirthing, with children born without HypnoBirthing.
The parents were asked to indicate how strongly their child exhibited certain characteristics and personality traits as a baby, and as an older child.
The results confirmed what many had suspected: Babies who experienced the calm of HypnoBirthing in the womb and during their birth were more likely described as calm, content and happy as both babies and older children. The HypnoBirthed babies were also more likely to be to be good sleepers, as well as easy and alert babies.
