About Laura

After using hypnobirthing methods during my 1st pregnancy in 2017/ 2018 I was desperate to share everything that I learned along the way and that’s when The Yorkshire Hypnobirthing School was born! Hypnobirthing has changed my life in so many ways, not only my birth but my confidence too.

I have a real passion for mental health, am a member of the Airedale NHS Maternity Voices Partnership and have trained and qualified with KGHypnobirthing and have now tailored the classes to suit my style!

I have now taught many parents to be whether that be 1st-time parents or 2nd-time parents from a variety of different backgrounds the benefits of being prepared for birth.

Prior to using hypnobirthing techniques,I was extremely nervous about any type of ‘medical’ environment and the idea of having a baby terrified me. After listening to negative birth stories and watching unrealistic births on TV I had a skewed idea about how we gave birth.

When I became pregnant I knew that I needed to do something to help me overcome my anxieties in order to ensure that I, my husband and my baby had a positive birth experience.

Despite a hospital transfer via ambulance and a baby born at 36 weeks, I was able to use hypnobirthing effectively, birthing my baby after 26 hours of active labour without any interventions (this was something I was keen on due to previous phobias). This for me was the perfect positive birth because I felt like I had made the decisions and therefore taken ultimate control of Charlotte’s birth.

As a result of this positive experience, not only was giving birth and meeting daughter the proudest moment of my life. I was proud of me in a way that I cannot describe, I had changed from a woman who lived in fear, to a mother who felt like she could do anything. This is exactly how every parent should feel after the birth of their baby and that’s what I’m all about – giving you the tools to have the experience you deserve.

Reviews & birth stories

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

Hypnobirthing taught me everything I needed to know about labour and the birth, and gave me the tools to work with my body and my mind to stay in control so when the day actually came, I felt fully informed, excited and mentally ready to take it on!

Heidi's Birth Story, First Time Mama - Horsforth

We became parents last week to a baby boy who was born via caesarean, although this wasn’t part of our birthing plan the techniques we learnt in the classes helped keep Lisa calm and relaxed throughout the labour.

Daniel, Father - Bramley, Leeds

All in all a MUCH better experience and I really feel hypnobirthing made a massive difference to our mindset and birth.

Amy and Gary - 2nd Time Parents, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire

My partner and I took the private Hypnobirthing classes with Laura - she was so fantastic, we immediately felt at ease with her. She was patient, friendly, and had so much knowledge and advice to share.
