Spending time connecting with others, sharing experiences and making time to bond with your baby is an incredibly worthwhile activity during pregnancy.
I don’t know about you, but I often found in pregnancy that I just needed some time to really open up and chat with other people who were going through pregnancy at the same time.. whether its about how your pregnancy feels or how you feel towards your baby’s birth – these sessions are a great way to connect, listen and support others having a baby at a similar time.
The sessions are a safe space for you to talk, let go and really connect with your baby.
We will explore a variety of different mindfulness activities such as journaling, breathing techniques, pregnancy relaxation and hypnobirthing techniques.
Throughout the sessions, I will offer a variety of refreshments – including cake (and plenty of it!).
Feel free to book all of the sessions, just one or feel free to book again if you’ve been to one before.
Week One – The Mind
Week Two – Oxytocin
Week Three – Connection
Week Four – The Body
Week Five – Self Doubt
Week Six – Preparation
Each week will have a different variety of activities available with each circle offering the opportunity to connect with others.
Each week, we will cover:
I will provide a variety of refreshments, yoga mats, pens and paper for the session. If there is anything else you would like to bring such as a cushion or a blanket, please feel free.
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.

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.
