Hypnobirthing Antenatal Classes & Doula Services

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 who has used hypnobirthing in both a vaginal and caesarean birth. I’m also a qualified antenatal, birth and postnatal doula – having this extra knowledge helps me to support you with more than just your course.

After supporting over 350 parents prepare for birth, I have been able to really understand what’s important to you when it comes to birth preparation.

All of my classes are interactive, with a variety of different learning techniques in order for you to get the absolute best out of our time together.

So what do people say about my classes? 

“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.”

Reviews & birth stories

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.

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.
