Hi, I’m Leah

Self confessed birth geek and complete mother lover

Hi, I’m Leah, a straight talking birth preparation teacher and huge fan of Mums, on a mission to give you and your partner all of the confidence, information, evidence, tools and techniques you need to have a positive birth on your terms, and then to ease your transition into parenthood.
I’m realistic and honest about EVERYTHING – we’ll prepare for every eventuality, you’ll be ready for any curve balls. We’ll put any worries or fears to bed so you can both spend the rest of your pregnancy looking forward to giving birth and meeting your baby.
We’ll talk about pain – yep that’s right, I’m not going to throw glitter and rose petals at you and tell you your baby will just fall out. I will however teach you and your birth partner some powerful and effective techniques to use to help you manage pain and feel more comfortable wherever you choose to give birth.
It is also important to mention here that if you’re planning on having all of the pain relief available to you, these techniques are still gold! You don’t have to be planning a birth without medical pain relief!

Private Birth Preparation Course

"Practising was like visiting a spa"

I felt so pampered whenever I took the time to practice hypnobirthing - it was like visiting a spa for me! I’d run a bath, lights some aromatherapy candles and play my hypnobirthing MP3s and would just feel so relaxed.

Pregnancy Relaxation Class

"Rare time out to focus on me"

It was a chance to take some rare time out to focus on me and my birth prep in the last few weeks of pregnancy. I learned some great techniques to help relax - the marble and tongue one was great for pregnancy insomnia and I use it multiple times every night now to get back to sleep after night feeds. It was also lovely to have a chance to meet other pregnant mums and to share experiences and get support. Leah is amazing and her support totally transformed my birth, she is inspiring and knowledgeable and goes above and beyond in all she does

Group Birth Preparation Course

"We felt fully prepared for whatever birth threw our way"

As a midwife I've seen the power of hypnobirthing and being well informed and prepared. My wife and I took Leah's Birth Preparation classes which we absolutely loved. Leah is so passionate and inspirational and her classes were the perfect combination of informative, fun and relaxing. We felt fully prepared for whatever birth threw our way and I was well prepped to be the best birth supporter ever! What could have been a complicated and scary induction of labour was a calm yet speedy beautiful experience - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

-Joycelyn & Emma

What is it like to work with me?

What they said

Obviously I can tell you how great my courses, groups and classes are, but you don’t have to take my word for it!

"positive and in control"

I started looking into hypnobirthing during my second pregnancy as my first wasn’t a very positive birth experience and I could feel it was effecting my outlook on this second pregnancy. I came across The Pure Peach and instantly could relate to so many of the feelings that Leah would talk about. Not knowing very much about hypnobirthing I was a little apprehensive about what hypnobirthing would be like. But I shouldn’t have been worried. Leah is so lovely and her absolute passion and positivity towards hypnobirthing shines through in her teaching. She is wholeheartedly the reason I went into the end stage of my pregnancy feeling positive and in control and ready for what labour would bring. I cannot recommend her course highly enough. Such a wonderful ambassador for what hypnobirthing represents.

-Charlotte, second time mum

Rachel Muir

"Informed and Confident"

The sessions were incredibly informative. We met with Leah during my second pregnancy and, despite having done NCT classes the first time around, by the end of our sessions with Leah I felt so much more prepared for labour and so much more confident in my ability to make decisions in a confident and well-informed way.

-Rachel, second time mum

Jen & Sarah

"Informal, impartial and very informative."

Informal, impartial, friendly and very informative. Really built on what we learned at NCT and provided us with lots more information and choices - regarding the birth - that we didnt know about. Was so useful to be shown how to do all the different hypnobirthing techniques and to be able to practice them and find what works for us.

-Sarah & Jen, first time parents

Jen & Sarah

"Informed and looking forward to birth"

Leah is both a wonderful person and amazing Hypnobirthing teacher! We went in to this birth preparation course feeling quite apprehensive about the birth but came away feeling positive, informed and actually looking forward to it. Thanks to Leah we feel ready now we are prepared with the tools and techniques we need to help make the birth a positive experience. I would highly recommend doing this course!

-Jen, first time mum

Beccie & Danny Sarlo

"I feel in complete control"

An absolutely amazing teacher. From the start of the course I had so much negativity about birth and saw birth itself as a horrorific procedure. I now feel in complete control of all situations and believe that I’ve got this. Leah is a caring, inspirational woman and has fed nothing but positivity into my mind in all aspects of birth. Honestly do not know what I would of done if I hadn't of done this course with this lovely lady. Such an amazing person who believes in all of us no matter what pregnancy complications or no complications we may have. Can’t recommend highly enough.

-Beccie & Danny Sarlo, second time parents

Anita & John

"Prepared for every eventuality"

Leah is really friendly and approachable and really knows her stuff. She is passionate about what she teaches and clearly loves what she does. I found the course really useful, even as a second time mum. I feel relaxed about the birth and feel I now have much better knowledge about my choices and am better equipped to prepare for every eventuality.

-Anita, second time mum

Clemence

"First time my husband got involved"

You made relaxation easy and accessible. Your course gave me the reassurance that I actually knew a few tools I could use on the day. It was also the first time my husband really got involved in the preparation - you must have put him at ease, well done!

-CM, second time mum

Steph & Ash

"REAL and funny."

We absolutely loved every single week with the birth guru, that is Leah. So inspiring, informative, REAL and funny! As well as learning we really had a great time with Leah and our crew. Nothing was off limits to discuss, we felt super comfortable and best of all I feel nothing but excitement and positivity about labour! Can't wait to share our positive birth story with you. Thank you.

-Steph & Ashley, second time parents

Catherine and Mark

"Toolkit to deal with anything"

This course has been so valuable to us as a couple. After unexpected circumstances during our first birth experience that left us feeling pretty shell-shocked and out of control, Leah's course has given us both so much more confidence in facing whatever this second birth brings. We had a lot of fun and plenty of laughs in our sessions too, and really feel that we've got an amazing toolkit to deal with anything calmly and positively. I've been able to deal with past feelings and now, instead of dreading a repeat of our last experience, we're both super excited for the arrival of this baby! Thank you xxx

-Catherine & Mark, second time parents

Gem & Liam

"Incredibly informative"

Leah is a wonderful teacher. Shes incredibly informative and has such a nice calming way about her that you cant help but take in what she says. I was unsure of what the course would entail but was very interested to hear about all the aspects of labour etc. We would definitely recommend her to our friends in the future. Keep up the good work Leah!!

-Gemma & Liam, first time parents

Kirsty EFT

"I feel great"

I had some EFT with Leah over the weekend and WOW – I feel great. I was a little sceptical at first…….I didn’t 100% believe that this could actually work for physical pain (which I have been having for months) – but as soon as Leah started to explain EFT to me it made total sense and after the session the pain was GONE. She have given me magical powers that I’ll use again and again.

"Good balance on birth partner of pregnancy and birth"

After attending an NCT antenatal course for our first pregnancy, I found the course content delivered by Leah to be much more practical, informative and tailored to our particular needs and also with a good balance on the male/birth partner aspect of pregnancy, labour and birth.

-Jon, second time dad

Kirsty and Steve, Brighton

"Surprised at how much we learned."

We were so surprised about how much we learned - about pregnancy, birth, even parenthood. There was so much information included in the course, but it’s delivered in a really nice environment and by Leah, who’s someone so fun to be around, so it doesn’t feel like you’re back in the classroom at all. We ended the course feeling so aware of all of our options that we were both so confident that we had everything it took to nail it - and we did!
