Welcome to The Yorkshire Hypnobirthing School!

Congratulations on your pregnancy & welcome to the world of hypnobirthing! I'm Laura & my mission is to support you to feel calm, confident & excited about the birth of your baby. So many of us already have an idea about what we think birth will be like, maybe it's from stories you've heard or from a previous birth - hypnobirthing is about starting afresh. I'm here to tell you that any type of birth can be a positive experience, it's all about how you prepare.  Birth doesn't need to feel like something that has to be endured to have a baby. After having a life changing experience using hypnobirthing in 2018, I'm now supporting parents prepare for birth through online and face to face antenatal classes plus doula work. I've now worked with over 100 across Yorkshire and online to prepare for the biggest day of their lives!

Hypnobirthing techniques help you to feel confident & in control to have the positive birth experience you deserve

Hypnobirthing is a full antenatal programme which teaches you why & how to feel calm in order to have a positive birth experience. If we feel anxious during labour, the birthing hormones that are crucial for labour to progress struggle to work. Hypnobirthing not only provides you with techniques to feel relaxed, it helps you to understand your body, work with your birth partner as a team and make choices that work best for you.

Is hypnobirthing right for me?

100% Yes! Hypnobirthing is for EVERY single type of birth! It's for sceptical birth partners (I'm confident they will change their mind by the end of the first session!), 2nd time parents and those who have already started looking into positive birth techniques!

Reviews & birth stories

We set up all my tools and anchors, Put the tens machine on, I sat on a birthing ball and simply breathed her out - no pushing required! The midwives arrived about 5:30 after we called them and I was already 9cm dilated so all that was left for them to do was catch her when she came out.

Lilys Homebirth

Your open and friendly nature made us all feel at ease immediately, it felt like a very personal session, and many members have commented on how they felt that they could ask questions confidently, with nothing being too much trouble for you.

The Leeds Student Midwifery Society

I just wanted to say thank you for the role you also played in our pregnancy and labour journey! I never felt any anxiety since your course and felt super confident in our decision to home birth even though we were first-time parents.

The Story of George's Homebirth

I thought Laura was mad when she said you can still have birth preferences with a C-Section – how much say do you have when you’re numb from your toes to your chest & in my mind, at their mercy; but she was absolutely right & due to how things panned out, I was even more grateful for having spent the time and money on the course.

It was such an amazing and surreal experience and I know that the knowledge and techniques we learned in Hypnobirthing contributed hugely to having a positive birth experience both where and how we wanted.

Natalie - 1st Time Mams Positive Birth Centre Birth Story

The contrast between my two births couldn’t be more pronounced, but in a heartbeat, I would choose my second birth every time. I want to shout from the roof tops how amazing it is to birth in your own home and be surrounded by the things and people you love.

Stacey 2nd Time Mama - A Home Birth Story

was facing the unknown with the birth of my first baby, listening to my hypnobirthing tracks and focusing my mind really helped, including spraying my favourite calming perfume, to help me relax into it.

Georgie's Birth Story, 1st Time Mama

Overall, I cannot thank Laura enough for not only providing ongoing support during my pregnancy and afterward, but also having the passion and knowledge in hypnobirthing to help encourage women to take control and be the boss of there own births!!!!

Laura's classes really helped me to understand the birthing process and what to expect so I could have a calm birthing experience.

Elizabeth, First Time Mama – Farsley, Leeds - Group Hypnobirthing Class Review

I am currently offering all my hypnobirthing classes online as well as 1:1 classes face to face (if prefered) in order to suit the ever-changing COVID- 19 restrictions.

If you’re living in Yorkshire, perhaps, Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate, Ilkley or Skipton the online group classes are proving popular with parents to be forming social groups after the classes. If your further afield, I’d love for you to join us too! Face to face group classes will be reviewed in early 2021 but for now, enjoy an interactive and fun session from the comfort of your own home.

Private classes are currently offered face to face with social distancing and all other COVID restrictions in place, I am able to travel 1 hour each way from LS19, Leeds wih an additional charge for further afield.
