Research underpins everything I do as a Birth & Baby practitioner and I often refer to the the NICE Guidelines as they are a reference to maternity research and NHS policy.


The NICE Guidelines include:

Antenatal Care

Weight Management in Pregnancy

Caesarean Section

Diabetes in Pregnancy

Postnatal Care


Multiple Pregnancy

Preterm Labour

Care for High Risk Women




About Janine 556 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.
