The purpose of this article is to compare and contrast two forms of childbirth education: HypnoBirthing (the Mongan Method) and the Bradley Method (husband-coached natural childbirth). Evidence was obtained using a formal literature review, reading published books and workbooks on the two methods, and attending classes to document content delivered. Similarities and differences in content are reported along with birth outcomes from evaluations of the two methods. Tables with this content were formatted so that they can be used by educators and providers.
