About

Hello, my name is Lara and I live in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside with my two teenage boys and our Cockerpoo, Molly.

 

Ever since I was little, I have been drawn towards birth, little people and their families, and so it was only natural that this would then become my chosen career. 

 

This began at age 18, when I attended a prestigious college near to Reading to train to become a living breathing Mary Poppins which I loved every second of. Once qualified I worked as a private nanny in London and the Cotswolds.

 

I then returned to Worcestershire to start my own family, and during that time I worked at a large Early Years Centre in Worcester. I managed the large Baby Care Department within the centre, alongside a team of Nursery Nurses and working within safeguarding. I loved putting the families at ease and supporting them with the transition back to work and in nurturing their baby.

 

In 2018 I began studying a full – time degree with the National Childbirth Trust called ‘Birth and Beyond’ at The University of Worcester, and here I became qualified as a Postnatal Practitioner, Baby Massage Teacher and a Birth Doula. 

 

Right now, I am studying for a BA Honours Degree in Midwifery, which is a life – long dream.

 

During my time of studying, I have had the honour of supporting women and their birth partners at both Worcester Royal Hospital and on the postnatal ward at Birmingham Women’s Hospital.  I have spent time discussing birth with partners and getting a sense of their perspective of pregnancy and birth, as well as supporting them with their feeding choices – gaining an in – depth knowledge into life postnatally, for a couple and their baby.

 

I am in complete awe of women and their innate ability to birth their baby. I am really passionate about hypnobirthing and how it can help women overcome fear and anxiety, leading to a woman feeling she has choice and is in control of her birth and her body. 

 

Whatever direction birth takes a woman, whether it is in a pool or an emergency caesarean, there is always a place for hypnobirthing to empower and to lead to a positive experience.
