HB Doulas

Doula Services

HB Doulas provides support for birthing people and their whānau as they move through pregnancy, during labour & birth and as they transition into parenthood.

Couples have better birth outcomes when they are fully supported and nurtured through their experience. All information shared is evidence-based and delivered in a way that couples can make informed decisions.

Having a Doula in your team can help expectant parents find the confidence needed to make birth and the parenting journey a positive and rewarding experience.

Positive Birth

Birth Coaching Classes

Positive Birth classes help women and their birth partners learn and practice useful and effective techniques to prepare the body and mind for birth.


Using yoga, breathing, deep relaxation, body and mind awareness and expansion techniques, acupressure, massage, and homeopathy, women and their birth partners attain the confidence and capability to meet anxiety and fear and other challenges of labour and birth, to ease baby’s passage into the world.


Positive Birth classes are a great complement to pregnancy yoga, traditional antenatal classes and Hypnobirthing classes.

Bay Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing Classes

Bay Hypnobirthing classes are designed to give you more confidence in your body, to relieve fear and tension, and reduce the risk of intervention, postnatal depression and a traumatic birth.


Classes teach mums-to-be simple but effective techniques that they can use to help them achieve a more calm and peaceful birth. Most Hypnobirthing mums 
experience little or no pain,
and feel far more in control of their birthing experience.


Hypnobirthing classes are an ideal complement to both traditional antenatal classes and Positive Birth classes.
