Group Hypnobirthing and Classes in and around Leeds

If your looking for hypnobirthing in and around Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate these 5 star rated group hypnobirthing and antenatal classes are a brilliant way to learn everything there is to know about preparing for the birth of your baby.

Not only are they a great place to make new connections, they are a safe space for you and your birth partner (if you choose to bring one along!) to really prepare for your baby’s birth through exploring a variety of topics over the course of the sessions.

As an experienced hypnobirthing teacher, my sessions have been created around the feedback I’ve received from parents about what they felt worked best and how they enjoyed to learn the content too.

Sessions are relaxed, involve a variety of group and one-to-one (along with your partner) activities and there is always an opportunity for tea and cake.

My ethos is always to support families to prepare for a positive birth, regardless of whether you are planning for a home birth, an induction, or a caesarean birth.

My laid back style works well for all parents, I’ve no doubt you’ll walk away having really enjoyed the course!

So what do we cover in the class?

  • Why it’s crucial to understand how your mind can impact your entire birth experience
  • Everything you need to walk into birth feeling calm & confident in your ability to birth your baby! You’ll create a ‘Relaxation Toolkit’ specifically for you. This can also be great for any birth partners, can be adapted for different environments and scenarios, and can even be used during the 4th trimester to support with feeding and bonding.
  • Intervention in childbirth – we will then look at ways to use your hypnobirthing skills, support from your birth partner etc should this be a path that you take 
  • Birth partner role – how they can best support you and work best as a team to birth your baby
  • You’ll learn how the maternity care system works and how to feel confident about requesting more individualised care, ways to feel confident making informed decisions & the confidence to go with your gut instinct
  • You’ll also learn how your body tends to work in labour through going through the birth process & how to work with your body to stay comfortable
  • Creating birth preferences that focus on your ideal birth yet taking other birth scenarios into account 

As part of the class, you’ll also get these awesome benefits

  • Support from me, an experienced hypnobirthing teacher and doula, birth and postnatal expert on WhatsApp or phone leading up to the birth of your baby – many clients may ask for a chat or support should birth preferences change, signposting and going back over elements of the course
  • A wide variety of relaxation and hypnosis MP3’s all recorded by Laura to use during pregnancy and birth – This includes MP3’s for homebirth, caesarean and anxiety 
  • A parent handbook that you can refer back to and use to start building up your birth preferences
  • A Preparing for Baby Gift Bag
  • A variety of additional video lessons exploring a variety of antenatal topics
  • Videos which you can use to practice your breathing techniques and other prompts from the live course

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.

Lilys Homebirth

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.
