My postnatal sessions are held in North Shields and they are attended by parents from across Tyneside and Newcastle.


 

I am a specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting. I am a mum of three and I have worked with expectant and new parents since 2002 and I have taught 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 parents on pregnancy, birth, babies and early parenting. 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 and baby information, I specialise in being parent-focused so I can provide support for specific issues such as anxiety & worries, babyloss, birth debrief and being a parent.

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