Birth & Baby is run by Janine Rudin
As an experienced antenatal teacher, I specialise in running sessions with small groups of parents across Tyneside so the sessions are informal, friendly and supportive.
I have provided antenatal classes and workshops across Tyneside since 2002. I possess a Diploma in Antenatal Education and, to extend my support to new parents, I later gained a Diploma in Postnatal Education, in addition to becoming an Infant Massage Instructor. I am also a birth and postnatal doula, providing practical support and reassurance to expectant and new parents across Tyneside.
As a mother of three, I understand the excitement and concerns of being pregnant, giving birth and becoming a parent and my work reflects this. I am passionate about supporting expectant and new parents – I keep it simple and I listen, inform and support without judgement so you are better able to tackle birth and everything parenthood throws at you.
