Hi and welcome..
I’m Christine, if you’re browsing my website you’re probably looking for information and support in relation to pregnancy, birth and the early days of parenthood. Why wouldn’t you be? Research has demonstrated that families report positive feelings about their births if they feel well informed, supported and respected. So, here at Leto Birth Therapies I aim to ensure that my clients experience of their natal period is a positive one.
As a former midwife with 13 years experience, I’ve had the privilege of supporting hundreds of families in welcoming their babies into the world. Now my passion is to provide a personal and professional birth service to women and their growing families in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
So, take your time to look around the site and all I have to offer, and don’t forget to check out the testimonials and birth stories, so generously shared by people just like you..
Now you may be asking yourself ‘Exactly what is hypnobirthing?’ Hypnobirthing is an enjoyable birth preparation course that leaves you feeling calm and confident about your birth. Let me reassure you, there’s no hocus pocus or mind control involved. So despite some common myths you won’t find yourself barking like a dog!

There’s no doubting the evidence that receiving continuous support improves birth outcomes. It helps you feel safe and this shortens labour, makes it less painful and more satisfying. You may be asking yourself, what can I expect if I hire a doula?
Receiving a massage is really beneficial for you (and your baby!). It can be an indulgent treat but also provides huge health benefits. Aromatherapy offers women more choices for coping with the physical symptoms of pregnancy and the postnatal period and for easing the discomfort of labour.
A quick and effective process that neutralises the distressing emotions linked to any event that might be described as traumatic. I’m really excited to be able to offer this technique to those who describe their birth in this way. Once the process is completed you'll be able to recall your birth without the distressing feelings previously experienced.
