Hello, welcome to Janine Smith Practice. Whether you need some additional support in pregnancy, more knowledge and better preparation for birth and baby or reassurance and ideas for 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.
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.
After working with expectant and new parents since 2002, I now specialise in personal consultations, small groups and digital courses.
Here are some quick links so you can find the right options for you…
These sessions are tailored to your pregnancy, your birth & baby preparation, you and your baby and for you as a parent.
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.
With postnatal sessions – online and face-to-face small groups for conversations and questions to gather reliable information, support and reassurance.
And an Online Membership
An exclusive way for expectant and new parents to gather information, ask questions and benefit from ongoing sessions, support and reassurance.
This is about having continued access to experience and knowledge and being able to ask questions during your pregnancy, as you prepare for birth and throughout the first few months with your baby.
It is about having a dependable place so don’t feel like you are doing this on your own.
Based in the North East, I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across Tyneside.
With digital courses and online video sessions 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.
There’s also a range of free resources…
- Sign up for: Notes for Parents – regular, short emails with information, inspiration & stories
- Read Mother Cuppa Magazine – with a foundation of knowledge and regular articles
- You can access a range of free online workshops
- You can follow me on social media for frequent posts:
And for women beyond the postnatal period, there are
coaching consultations to focus on you, the person behind the parent.
