Laura Abba – Founder
Mind the Mother has been created by Laura Abba, a mother of 2 children, living in South London. In essence, it is a Maternal Mental Health service, that has started after seeing how mothers at some point during motherhood, or even from pregnancy, they feel lost and have serious struggles.
Importantly, she has experienced it at first hand on what the strong feelings of overwhelmed can do to a family when caring for 2 young kids.
Without a doubt, Motherhood is a game-changer, reconciling a new identity can be challenging. And because we live in a society where we work in a reactive way, having the opportunity to be proactive is a benefit for the long term.
Laura Abba is a Cognitive Hypnotherapist & Maternal Coach working in London, Surrey & Spain. She is offering her expertise in the maternal mental health field, focusing on empowering women to have a positive pregnancy and motherhood experience.

Hypnotherapy can double the chances of a successful IVF/ET, it can go along with you through your journey. For a more relaxed, treatment, you could opt to be supported from IVF to childbirth. Working with your unconscious mind to work on achieving what you are looking for.

Most women will come to Mind the Mother to work on positive childbirth through hypnobirthing, maybe because they are scared of giving birth or even suffering from tokophobia. However, the support that can be provided for pregnant women goes beyond birth. Consider the preparation to one of the major shifts in your identity you will ever experience in your life. And so, being ready for it, from a mental perspective, it is essential for a positive postpartum and beginning of motherhood.
