Hello, welcome to my practice. For information and support in pregnancy, more knowledge and better preparation for birth and baby and for reassurance and ideas in early parenting, you have come to the right place.

As expectant and new parents you might sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of information and advice offered to you. It is also easy to feel frustrated and lost with information that may be incorrect, inconsistent and just not right for you.

By providing reliable information – based on evidence and experience – and listening to you, I can focus on your questions and your need for knowledge, strategies and reassurance.

“You were awesome throughout pregnancy and afterwards – I learnt so much and I felt supported and listened to.”

Through my sessions, digital courses and on these pages you will find clear, practical and honest information to be an informed and confident parent and to find what works best for you.

After working with expectant and new parents since 2002 and making changes as a result of the pandemic, I now specialise in personal consultations, small groups and digital courses.

  • Consultations
    These sessions are tailored to you during pregnancy, for your birth & baby preparation, with your baby and for you as a parent.
  • Digital Courses
    A range of antenatal and postnatal courses to go through at your own pace, with personalised resources and follow-up emails to see how you are getting on.
  • Groups
    These face-to-face small groups for conversations and questions to gather reliable information, support and reassurance.
  • Mother Cuppa Magazine
    Practical articles, guides and posts with experiences and comment about pregnancy, birth, babies and being a parent.

Everyone who books consultations and courses with me will also be included in the my new online community group for ongoing conversation and reassurance.

My practice is about having a dependable place so don’t feel like you are doing this on your own.

“You really helped to turn what started as the scariest time of my life into the best 10 months of my life.”

If you have any queries about how I can help, just send me a message below. My website is packed full of information so please do take a wander.

Working with parents since 2002

Based in the North East, I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across Tyneside.
With digital courses and video consultations I am now able to work with parents everywhere.

You can access online sessions on your phone, tablet or computer and you can use the interactive resources in your own time to personalise the information for you.


My face-to-face groups are ideal for parents across Newcastle & Tyneside.
With video sessions and digital courses, I also work with parents and families from across the UK as well as internationally.

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
