Midwife, yoga teacher
& childbirth educator
Being a midwife isn't just Laura’s job, it's also her primary passion in life.
Early on in her career, Laura decided she wanted to support pregnant women and their partners in as many ways as she could, so she also trained as a childbirth educator and yoga teacher.
After years of offering in-person classes, Laura decided to combine all three passions into one. She wanted to create an education-based yoga programme that could be made available to pregnant women and their birth partners all over the world, no matter where they are, or their level of experience.
