Private Hypnobirthing Classes

Laura was amazing and always there with resources and answers to all my questions about giving birth and how best to manage the process to have the most positive experience.  The hypnobirthing techniques we went through definitely helped me during labour and my induction was an amazing positive experience.

Since becoming a doula, I've been lucky enough to support over 30 births, in a variety of settings. One thing I’ve noticed time and time again is that people who’ve used hypnobirthing tools during their pregnancy and labour have had a far more enjoyable, comfortable and empowering experience than those who didn't - whether their birth went to "plan" or not.

That’s why this year I decided to become a hypnobirthing instructor with The Calm Birth School, to help even more people have the birth experiences they deserve.

About Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing is a powerful tool. It has the ability to transform not only your birth, but every single area of your life, through deep relaxations, specific mindfulness techniques and carefully crafted visualisations. I will teach you and your birthing partner (if you have one) all of the techniques you need to stay calm, relaxed and in control throughout the remainder of your pregnancy, during your own unique birth and into your early days, weeks and months of parenthood - and beyond.

 

I will provide comprehensive, evidence based birth education, to help you understand exactly how birth physiology works, what your options are and crucially, how your hypnobirthing tools can help you embrace every moment. As an experienced doula, I will share the resources, tips and tricks I use when supporting my clients through birth.
