Welcome to the new Birth, Baby & Family

parent support

Birth, Baby & Family is a small practice, providing a supportive and personalised service for parents. I have made a few changes to focus on the work I love – birth preparation, being a birth doula, baby massage and providing 1:1 parent support for a range of issues.

I want to continue to provide a drop-in service for parents and this will now just run on Wednesdays.
