The Birth & Baby Network is 4!

I am so so proud of the Birth & Baby Network – it was set up four years ago as a small Network of trusted and respected practitioners in North Tyneside and, due to demand, it has grown across Tyneside and, this year, it is set to grow across the North East.

It is just run by me and the philosophy of the Network is to work with and to promote the best – information, links, support and practitioners – for parents who are pregnant or who have a young family.
