Welcome, thank you so much for being here. I'm Laura & I'm passionate about supporting people like you to feel calm, confident and in control of your baby's birth & postnatal period. After having a life changing experience using hypnobirthing to overcome birth anxiety in 2018, I've now worked with over 300 parents to prepare for birth & beyond. I'm the last person who thought would do this sort of job..! Not only do I provide hypnobirthing classes, I am now a qualified doula who is able to support you with preparing for birth and once your baby has arrived. 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.Find out more
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.Find out more about hypnobirthing
My 5-star rated hypnobirthing classes are focused not only on supporting birthers but birth partners too. The classes I offer are all about what works best for you and your family. They are interactive and informative and are run both face to face and online. The main focus is that you feel confident and in control when it comes to your baby's birth - the classes work in such a way that you learn a variety of tools & techniques in order to decide what works best for you.Classes, courses and workshops
100% Yes! Hypnobirthing is for EVERY single type of birth! I myself have used hypnobirthing in a vaginal birth and caesarean 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!Find out more
The difference hypnobirthing played in the birth of my 2nd child compared to my 1st is unbelievable.
Laura, 2nd time mama, Cookridge
As soon as I heard that Laura has trained as a hypnobirthing teacher, I had said to my husband that I would be doing classes with Laura if and when we got pregnant-it was a non-negotiable for me.
Vikki, 1st time Mama, Harrogate
I just wanted to say thank you so so much for everything, you really helped me so much take back control of my body, I feel powerful and amazing, we're all home now and doing really well, breastfeeding well and he is a chunky monkey! 8lb 12oz!! Thank you so so much!
Elle, 2nd Time Mama, Harrogate
We were very lucky to have the birth we had hoped for but I really believe being equipped with the skills and knowledge (and knowing it’s OUR birth!) made a huge difference.
The Birth of Toby - A Positive Hospital Birth Story by Tessa, 1st time Mama, Saltaire
Our birth story definitely wouldn’t have been as smooth without Laura. We really weren’t sure about Hypnobirthing but wanted to know more about it.
Fiona, 1st Time Mama - Harrogate
It made a huge difference in how I am feeling about my upcoming birth and equipped us both with lots of helpful, practical tools to advocate for our choices and face the whole process with more confidence.
Tessa, 1st Time Mama - Saltaire
I booked a refresher class with Laura before the birth of my second baby. I can’t recommend her enough, she made both me and my husband confident in our birth decisions
Sarah, 2nd Time Mama - Eldwick
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.
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.

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.
