My mission is to support you to feel confident and supported when it comes to making decisions about the birth of your baby – I don’t care what type of birth you want. I care that you feel like you are doing what is best for you.
What makes The Yorkshire Hypnobirthing School classes stand out from others is that they have been specifically designed by me, an experienced hypnobirthing teacher and newly trained doula.
After supporting over 200 parents prepare for birth, I have been able to really understand what’s important to you when it comes to birth preparation.
All classes are interactive, with a variety of different learning techniques in order for you to get the absolute best out of our time together.
“Put quite simply, you couldn’t be in better hands. Laura has clearly found her calling and is not just incredibly knowledgeable and personable, she leaves you feeling empowered to face whatever your birth experience throws at you.”Julie, 1st Time Mama
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.
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.

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.

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.
