Birth and parenthood: empowered

Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy!

Welcome to HD Hypnobirth. My name is Angela Wilson, I am a mum, practicing midwife and qualified hypnobirthing expert serving whole of the West Yorkshire area.

Whether this is baby #1 #2 #3 #4 or beyond, it's a very exciting time and you begin to plan and prepare from the moment that you see that positive pregnancy test! Decorating the nursery, shopping for a cot and a pram and baby clothes, arranging a baby shower - these are all things you soon start to think about.

BUT, how do you prepare body and mind for the upcoming labour and birth? Have you given that any thought? What would be the ideal way? We spend time and money on planning other big events in our lives, such as weddings and holidays but interestingly not so much time planning our baby's birth. An average pregnancy can be 41 weeks, that's 6888 hours ! Use 12 of those hours wisely by booking a course with me - and arm yourself with so much knowledge to leave you completely prepared for your precious birth journey.

My HD Hypnobirth course shows you relaxation techniques and covers a full antenatal education programme which aims to reduce the fear surrounding childbirth. The use of hypnotherapy in labour and birth is based on work by obstetrician Dr Grantly Dick-Read carried out in the 1920's. He developed the theory that "where fear is not present, pain is not present". Just think about those mammalian mamas - they have no fear of birth and they follow their natural instincts with great success.

Hypnobirthing is, simply put, the use of words to induce a state of relaxation allowing enhanced capacity for the subconcious mind to respond to beneficial suggestions towards achieving a calm and comfortable birth of your baby. It's just science !

This is an all encompassing birth and parenthood preparation course. Education is knowledge and knowledge means empowerment. Your body is led by your mind, so by practicing hypnobirthing techniques, your mind will be equipped to lead your body towards a positive birth experience, whatever form your baby's birth takes. Hypnobirthing is for ALL births. Every. Single. One. 

HD Hypnobirth offers private hypnobirthing courses to couples in the comfort, familiarity and privacy of their own homes and also group hypnobirth workshops with a maximum of four couples in each group, held in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire - or if you prefer you can join in digitally over TEAMS.

Also on offer are one off sessions on feeding your baby and a baby basics session too! If it's your first time as parents, there is so much to learn and get to grips with. Preparation is the key to success. You do not need to feel daunted. I am here to help you.

If you need some extra one to one support in the early postnatal days I can provide bespoke postnatal care packages, tailored to meet your needs. 

I look forward to the privilege of being able to support you at this special time in your lives.

Please do contact me for further information, I will get back to you to answer any questions you may have. Alternatively, book your FREE telephone consultation today to find out more.

Best birthing wishes,

Is it better to do 1-2-1 or group sessions?

There is no right or wrong. It is whatever you are comfortable with. Feel free to call me to discuss this further.

At what gestation should I start the hypnobirthing classes?

Again there is no right or wrong. When would you like to start? You may want to come to a workshop as soon as you find out you are pregnant if you have many worries about the pregnancy. You may want to come later on in pregnancy if you have only just heard about hypnobirthing.
Most mums come between 25 and 36 weeks of pregnancy, but it is entirely up to you.
Please give me a call and we can discuss this in more detail. 

What do we get with the course?

You will receive a copy of the parents pack which accompanies the course, along with digital downloads of relaxation scripts recorded to use at home.
You will also receive a lovely goody bag with lots of essential items to aid relaxation and preparation.

Can we do a shorter course than the full 12 hours?

Not usually recommended, however, we can do an intensive private course if necessary. The course is a complete birth preparation programme and all parts are essential to ensure that you have the best possible opportunity to have a positive birth experience.
I offer a refresher course if you have used a hypnobirthing method for a previous pregnancy. Please contact me for further information on an intensive course or a refresher course to suit your individual needs.

Can we join in digitally?

Yes! Of course! I want you to feel comfortable and help you to achieve a calm and comfortable birth wherever you are in the world! Please get in touch to have a chat.
