My antenatal classes are held in North Shields and they are attended by expectant parents from across Tyneside and Newcastle.

Here’s some reasons to book antenatal classes and some client feedback.


I am a specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting. I have worked with expectant parents since 2002 and I have taught antenatal classes almost weekly since 2005.  I am NCT-trained and, due to my knowledge, training and experience, I am able to provide information, support and reassurance for all expectant parents. My sessions are friendly and informal – not like a classroom – with small groups and 1:1 sessions so you can ask questions and gather all the information you need.

In addition to general birth preparation, I specialise in being parent-focused so I can provide support for specific issues such as birth anxiety, giving birth again, being induced, planned caesareans and homebirths.

I am a mum of three and I have also worked as a birth doula, so I have attended a number of births.

If you have any queries, just send me a message.
