HD Hypnobirth


BSc(Hons) Dip Hb(KGH)

Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy!

My name is Angela Rogers and I’m a mum, a practising midwife and qualified hypnobirthing teacher.

I’m passionate about supporting mothers, preparing their mind and body for labour and birth in a calming, relaxed way.

Hypnobirthing reduces the fear surrounding childbirth, providing techniques to help your mind lead your body towards a positive birth experience, whatever that experience may be.

You will learn breathing exercises, deep relaxation, visualisations, massage, how to release fear and build confidence, and more.

You will also gain the knowledge to understand your options and the implications of the choices you make.

I also offer one-off sessions on baby basics and feeding your baby, as well as bespoke postnatal care packages, tailored to your needs.


  • Private hypnobirthing classes to couples in the comfort, familiarity and privacy of their own homes. 12 hours, split over 3/4 sessions.
  • Group hypnobirthing class sessions (four couples per group)
  • Group pregnancy relaxation classes for mums-to-be
  • One-on-one sessions on feeding your baby and baby basics
  • Bespoke postnatal care packages

I can travel within a 15 mile radius free of charge, and offer a FREE taster session or telephone consultation.

Hello and congratulations!

I am a practising midwife with over 10 years’ experience. I have a passion for promoting normality and supporting women and their birth partners to have a safe and positive birth experience. I am a registered Pregnancy Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher.

I run weekend workshops and retreats combining pregnancy yoga asana (postures), pranayama (breath control) and meditation techniques with in-depth sessions on birth preparation and antenatal/postnatal education.

The workshops cover traditional antenatal parent education alongside a wealth of gentle and natural coping techniques to assist and empower mums and birth partners through pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond. No further antenatal classes needed! The courses also offer an introduction to the use of Rebozo for pregnancy and labour.

Discover how yoga asana mirror active birth positions, how pranayama can aid breathing and relaxation in pregnancy and labour, and find empowerment and confidence through education, allowing you to have a positive birth experience, wherever and however that may take place.

Upcoming Dates:

Fri 27th – 29th September, 2019: Nab Cottage, Lake District

Sat 26th – Sun 27th October, 2019: Calderdale Yoga Centre, Hebden Bridge
