Meet Hannah+ Hailey

They're friends who are both Midwives.

After years of working with expectant families in India, Costa Rica, Uganda, London and Dundee we decided to bring together our experience in midwifery, yoga and hypnobirthing and co-founded Grow and Gather.


We are both now settled in Edinburgh and work with pregnant women and their families in our roles as NHS midwives. Hannah is a hypnobirthing teacher and Hailey is an antenatal and postnatal yoga instructor and we met whilst working in the same community midwifery team.

We are both passionate about antenatal education and want to make sure you are equipped for labour and parenthood; a journey that is both exciting and daunting.

We bring together local parents within relaxed and informal settings, ensuring you get the chance to meet other expectant parents in an atmosphere that is friendly and informative. Regardless of whether or not you join us for antenatal classes, hypnobirthing or yoga; our classes are honest, evidence-based and great fun.


I’m Hannah and I’m an NHS midwife and co founder of Grow + Gather.


I’m a mum to 2 year old Arlo and when I have some free time I love cycling and swimming.

During the classes I will be helping you to feel prepared with honest advice and guided hypnobirthing sessions too!

I love supporting families through pregnancy, labour and parenthood so I am looking forward to meeting you!

I’m Hailey, the other founder of Grow + Gather.


I’m a midwife in the NHS by day (and sometimes by night), an auntie of 2 toddlers, wannabe baker, traveller and lover of mountains in my free time.

Fun fact... there has yet to be a birth I haven’t got emotional at.

Alongside Hannah, I will be offering real, honest and refreshing classes as well as yoga for birth.
