Soraya Paterson-Byrne – Sage Birth

Heaton, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear NE6 5QN, England


My name is Soraya and I run Sage Birth in Newcastle upon Tyne. I am so excited for you that you are looking for a hypnobirthing teacher! I am currently delivering 1:1 hypnobirthing classes in the comfort of your home, other preferred location, or online. Group hypnobirthing class dates coming soon!

My background is in Psychology and mental health, so I have complete understanding of the mind-body connection and understand how to work with clients empathetically and sensitively regarding any anxieties, or previous trauma, you may have had. I have also completed post-graduate research and understand research literature, statistics, and how to critique a study; this is vital in picking apart the meaning and quality of things being referred to as “evidence based.” I will help you navigate this minefield and understand the clinical guidelines and recommendations.

I look forward to supporting you, and your baby, in having a positive birth experience.


I am a mum to two lovely young children and have fallen in love with birth work and antenatal care. I’m so excited to empower and inspire women to have the best births possible and to have a great start to life with their baby. I studied Psychology at the University of Glasgow and two Masters degrees, at the University of Edinburgh, focusing on Children’s Mental Health and Psychological Practice. I completed my Diploma in Hypnobirthing in 2023. In my spare time I also love playing with my children, stretching out on a yoga mat, cooking, walks, podcasts, and obsessively soaking up birth knowledge.

Currently offering 1:1 classes in the comfort of your home, preferred location, or online.

Group classes available and St Gabriel’s Church, Heaton.
