  • Welcome to My Calm Birth

    West Yorkshire’s independent midwifery and hypnobirthing services.

Your labour and birth experiences matter to me.

No, REALLY matter to me.

This will be one of the most important things you ever do, so let’s make it right! I want you to have the best time of your life as you plan for and experience your birth journey and early parenting days.

Together we will explore what an amazing process your body is going through;

  • We will chat endlessly about your pregnancy and birth choices (over copious amounts of tea)
  • We will explore the most up-to-date evidence, teasing out what “fits” for you.

You will have the benefit of my 35 years’ midwifery experience and specialist hypnobirthing knowledge and can be sure that there is no such thing as a silly question.

Let’s get excited about your birth.

Let’s get your partner excited about your birth.

Let’s get everyone around you excited about your birth!

Planning your calm birth

My Calm Birth is a place where you can explore the options available to you all the way through your pregnancy, birth and those vital first few weeks of your baby’s life.

I provide independent midwifery and hypnobirthing services across the West Yorkshire region and some areas in North Yorkshire, including: Airedale, Bingley, Bradford, Haworth, Harrogate, Ilkley, Leeds, Keighley, Skipton, and Wharfedale.

My birth plan was followed in every way and I laboured for a long time in the pool without pain relief, something I could never have done without Amanda’s support and belief in me.

Sam

The calming reassurance and advice from Amanda all the way through made the whole experience so much more relaxed.

Amy

I would recommend it to all mums, dads and babies. It kept me positive all the way through. This programme is amazing and all women need to know about it!

Fiona & Baby George

To have someone believe in you make’s all the difference to a birth experience, five weeks on and we can remember everything like yesterday and we hope we will forever.

Kathie

The course has benefited us beyond birth itself, keeping both of us, as well as our baby, so calm and relaxed…….!
