Hi I’m Laura, I’m a doula and hypnobirthing instructor based in Tonbridge. I work all over Kent and South London.
As a doula, I’ve been lucky enough to attend many births, with people from all walks of life, in a variety of settings. One thing I’ve noticed time and time again is that people who’ve practiced hypnobirthing during their pregnancy, birth and early parenthood 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 I decided to become a hypnobirthing instructor; to help even more people have the birth experience they deserve.
When I had my own children my world was turned upside-down. The experience of becoming a mum completely floored me. There I was, a seemingly successful woman, in a heap on the floor, struggling to process a difficult birth, unable to understand why I couldn’t get to grips with my new identity as a Mum.
Over time, I realised it wasn’t just me: that many new parents felt just as lost as I had and were being let down by a system and society that puts parental experience at the bottom of the pile. I wanted to do my bit to try and change things, which is how I discovered birth work and I haven’t looked back since.
My goal as your doula and hypnobirthing teacher is to help you find your own path as you make your profound and unique transition to parenthood. I believe this starts from the moment you find out you’re pregnant, right up until your baby is born and beyond. I passionately believe the more informed, empowered and in control you feel about your body, your baby and your choices, the more positive, transformative and powerful your experience will be. Hypnobirthing is the tool that can unlock all of this in a way that feels right for you.
