The Birth, Baby & Family Business Network

Birth, Baby & Family Business Network

The Birth, Baby & Family Business Network is a pool of specialist knowledge, services and practitioners.

As a reliable resource of information for parents and families from pregnancy through to teenagers, it is essential for me to be able to provide information about and links to the best local services, products and practitioners. This means that they are established, qualified, professional and have also come recommended to me.

Supporting brilliant small businesses is important to me and this is a network of wonderful people who are passionate about what they do, who are excellent at what they do and I recommend them to parents…

About Janine 634 Articles
I am an antenatal teacher, doula, baby massage instructor, postnatal educator, life coach, writer, mum, wife, friend and, sometimes, just me. As an experienced and qualified practitioner, I specialise in pregnancy, birth and early parenting - my aim is to listen, inform, support and reassure when needed. I have worked with parents since 2002 and I set up Birth, Baby & Family in 2011 to provide good information, a different perspective and links to the best products and services for families. I set up the Birth, Baby & Family Centre in 2014 to provide a welcoming, friendly and supportive space for parents across Tyneside.
