Hello Baby antenatal classes are led by Chloe (me!), a hypnobirthing teacher, together with Hannah, a qualified midwife. We are based in Bushey, Hertfordshire.
As a BirthMind hypnobirthing client you will receive a 10% discount on Hello baby antenatal courses and workshops.
The classes are fun, relaxed and interactive, and will leave you feeling excited, confident and ready for the arrival of your baby.
As well as preparing you for labour and birth, the comprehensive sessions will give you lots of practical tips to help you transition into life with a newborn. Informative and evidence-based, you will learn everything you need to help you navigate the first few weeks, as well as meeting a group of other local parents-to-be who can share the journey with you.
