About Me

Hi! My name is Leanne (DipHb), I am a mum of two Hypnobirth babies and a badass birth nerd! I am a proud hypnobirthing teacher, doula, Pregnancy/Postnatal yoga teacher and a 3 Step Rewind practitioner.

Born and raised in Leicestershire, I now reside in NW Leicestershire with my 2 daughters, my dog Ron and my cat Albus!

My core values are that everyone is entitled to person centred care, immeasurable support and education that means they can feel in control throughout their perinatal experiences.

Why I chose Hypnobirthing?

I first became interested in hypnobirthing when I started to research birth stories when I was expecting my first baby and found how positive it could be, much different to the scarefest I'd been treated to before this from everyone around me. I found a course, which I left feeling extremely informed, calm and confident about my birth. I found my passion, something I wanted others to feel, the 'I CAN DO THIS' moment.

I am a HUGE advocate for Hypnobirthing and want to help enable parents to have the birth they want, being aware of their choices through delivering a full antenatal programme.

 

 

 

Following working with over 100 families, I was regularly approached to attend births, which was something I'd always dreamt of.

This led me to following my dreams to become a doula and I absolutely adore what I do every day!

Doula assisted parents,  who received continuous support 'were more likely to have spontaneous vaginal births and less likely to have any pain medication, epidurals, negative feelings about childbirth, vacuum or forceps-assisted births, and Cesareans' (Bohren et al. 2017) which is one of the many reasons I am so passionate about the care I provide to my clients and why my support is unequivocal.
