About Me

Hi mama /mama to be, my name is Lauren, and I'm a Lake Macquarie based tea loving, pink lover, low-tox/eco living pre/postnatal yoga teacher, birth mentor and Hypnobirthing Australia™ practitioner. I believe that all women and their birth partners deserve to step into their birth feeling confident and excited. I love being able to share amazing tools, knowledge, preparation with women and birth partners while being their supporter the whole way through their pregnancy journey. Pregnancy and birth can come with a lot of fears and unknowns, especially when it's how society has conditioned us to view birth, however birth doesn't have to be that way, and I certainly don't want it to be for you, because let's be honest there's a reason you've landed here, and it's most likely because you want a positive birth, to do things differently, to have birth partner support, and to really step into your own power. I am continually excited to watch a mama's to be and birth teams go through their own journey of changing perceptions about birth.

I have also used the same preparations that I share to prepare for both births which allowed me to step into my power, cultivate confidence and trust in myself and my body, while also giving me the tools to remain completely in the zone to birth my babies. For me, birth was a beautiful, empowering and transformative experience, and I honest believe that YOU can feel that way about your birth too. 


As well as being a certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie area I am also a graduate of the University Of Newcastle with a Bachelor of Business and am a qualified yoga teacher having completed both 300 and 200 hour programs plus pre/postnatal training.  I have been teaching students in the Lake Macquarie area for the last 9 years and have been blessed to witness the benefits of the practice to many. I am also an Optimal Maternal Positioning ambassador, and have loved sharing these techniques as well as using them for our second birth. 


Are you wanting to be as prepared and knowledgeable about birth as you can, or maybe you are fearful of the “pain” that your friends and family describe birth to be? Are you wanting to connect with your body and baby and even your birth partner on a deeper level? Do you know birth is all about choice but need some clarity in forming your preferences, or you have special circumstances and want to know your options? Are you overwhelmed mentally and emotionally about birth and need a little support to create a positive outlook? Have you experienced birth trauma or your previous birth experience/s haven’t gone to plan and you’d like to take back your power next time around? Even if you're just not sure but wanting to give something a go, this program is definitely for you. The way I see it, birth is like a marathon, you can’t just show up and expect to have the right tools to win the race.
