The Birth & Baby Network

With Janine Rudin – antenatal educator, doula, postnatal group leader, baby massage instructor

As a birth practitioner who is professionally trained to provide antenatal education I run small groups so you can benefit from informal sessions with discussion, a place to ask questions and gain practical knowledge along with greater confidence about giving birth.

These sessions aim to give you the knowledge and skills to prepare for the reality of birth. I have worked with expectant and new parents for 15 years and I am dedicated to providing good support and reassurance and to focus on your individual needs.

I provide ongoing support after the course has finished and when your baby is here at The Birth & Baby Family Centre.

About Janine 596 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.
