My name is Lauren, I am a mum of two young boys, a Midwife, a 'Yogabirth' pregnancy yoga teacher and Hypnobirthing practitioner.
I first became interested in Yoga when I went to University in Bristol in 2003. I enjoyed the exercise, but never really experienced anything more than a physical connection with yoga. I practised yoga on and off over the years however, it wasn't until I was pregnant with my first son, that I really became passionate about yoga. I enjoyed Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and then later I discovered Scaravelli inspired yoga through 'YogaBirth', when I decided to train as a pregnancy yoga teacher in 2014. The YogaBirth Teacher training course is a 300 hour programme, founded by a group of fantastic 'Active Birth' teachers and yoga teachers with over 30 years experience. The course combines Pregnancy Yoga with Childbirth preparation.
I also work part-time as a Midwife in the NHS. I absolutely love being a midwife, its equally a very rewarding, but challenging job. I have a passion for homebirths, waterbirths, breastfeeding but most of all supporting women to feel in control during childbirth and help them achieve their birth choices.
