The Birth, Baby & Family Centre is a unique space for parents – with plenty of room for toddlers to run off some energy, comfortable space for parents and babies, a sensory den to relax in, a therapy room and a kitchen area for tea, coffee and cake.

It is a haven for parents from pregnancy and throughout life with a young family, with a range of brilliant courses & workshops, practitioners, drop-in sessions and support.


The Birth, Baby & Family Centre in North Tyneside provides…

  • a range of antenatal classes
  • postnatal workshops
  • sensory den
  • toys and activities for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers
  • family café drop-in for anyone with a baby, toddler or pre-schooler
  • the baby session drop-in for mums and babies
  • Baby Massage for parents, grandparents and babies
  • Tots Play and Sing & Sign for babies and toddlers
  • Action Tots for pre-schoolers
  • the North East Sling Library
  • Tumbles & Grumbles First Aid
  • tea, fresh coffee, cake, conversation and an informal, comfortable space


I am an experienced and well trained practitioner in pregnancy, birth and early parenting and I set up the Family Centre for parents to access supportive chat, tea, cake, professional reassurance and information. It’s about love, support, friends, community, laughs, reassurance and being listened to. Parents, grandparents and childminders from Newcastle, Durham, Gateshead and across Tyneside access sessions at the centre.

“It’s been a lifeline for me – no pressure, no cliques, just good chat, reassurance and information. I have also made some
fantastic friends.”
