New Harrogate pregnancy and wellness clinic to open
Last updated Feb 1, 2024

A pregnancy and wellness clinic called Cocoon will open on Victoria Avenue in Harrogate on Saturday (February 3).

The clinic will offer private scans and midwifery care to families in Harrogate and surrounding areas, as well as support. 

Mother-of-two Sam Naughton founded Cocoon after experiencing her own difficult path to parenthood. 

In 2022, Ms Naughton gave birth to son Alby but previously lost her baby, Willow, at 10 weeks, meaning she had many private scans during her pregnancy with Alby. 

This appointment process inspired her to create Cocoon as a means of nurturing parents at every and any stage of pregnancy. 

Ms Naughton said:

“While on maternity leave, I couldn’t shake the feeling that there had to be a better way. I imagined a clinic that nurtured and supported parents at every stage.

“I wanted to create somewhere that was inclusive and accessible to all families, all emotions and all outcomes.

“We’re also hearing from women who are feeling anxious or worried in the weeks and months after their baby has been born – and this is something we are here to help with.”

The business will provide ultrasound scans alongside bereavement therapy, life-coaching and mentoring. 

The Cocoon team consists of five specialists, including sonographers and midwifes.

The clinic has also partnered with local midwifery organisation Taking Baby Steps, which will be on-site two days a week to provide support to families pre, during and post pregnancy. 

Cocoon also offers scans throughout pregnancy, starting from six to 11 weeks through to 36+ weeks, as well as gender and 4D scans.
