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 150 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 now offer both antenatal and postnatal doula support & a Preparing for Postnatal Workshop. 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 and courses
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!Find out more
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.
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.
Hypnobirthing & my C-Section birth
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.
