Hello, I am Janine. I am a mum of three and an experienced antenatal and postnatal practitioner. Whether you need some additional support in pregnancy, more knowledge and better preparation for birth or reassurance and ideas for early parenting, I can help.

Expectant and new parents can often be overwhelmed by the amount of information and advice available to them, which can sometimes be incorrect and is inconsistent.

My philosophy is based around providing a foundation of knowledge – based on evidence and experience – with personalised resources and sessions so you can focus on strategies that work best for you and for your family.

Through my sessions and on these pages you will find clear, practical, honest information. With a calm and knowledgeable approach, my aim is to provide the knowledge, support and reassurance you need to be an informed and confident parent.

My practice is here so you have a professional space to ask questions and to talk through your experiences, fears or concerns, as well as to develop realistic plans and strategies for you and your family.

I specialise in working directly with expectant and new parents through personal consultations, online groups and digital courses.

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

Here’s a quick guide so you can find the right options for you…

  • 1:1 Consultations
    Working with you as an individual to focus on you during your pregnancy, for birth, with your baby and for you as a parent.
  • Online Postnatal Sessions
    Small groups for conversations and questions to gather reliable information, support and reassurance.
  • Digital Courses
    Antenatal and postnatal courses to go through at your own pace.
  • Online Community
    A safe space for expectant and new parents for ongoing information reassurance, to have conversations, discussions and to ask questions.

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

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

And for women during and beyond the postnatal period, there are 1:1 consultations for you to focus on you, the person behind the parent.

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.
