Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy!
Welcome to HD Hypnobirth. My name is Angela, I am a mum, practising midwife and qualified hypnobirthing teacher serving the West Yorkshire.
Whether this is your first or subsequent baby, it is 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 the baby shower - these are all things you soon start to think about.
BUT, how do you prepare your minds and bodies 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.
The HD Hypnobirth course teaches 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".
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.
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.
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.
Group pregnancy relaxation classes for mums-to-be are also available and are a one hour session on a weekly basis.
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.
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 being privileged to be able to support you at this special time in your lives.
