Janine Smith, Latest Posts, Welcome


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.

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.

“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
    These sessions are tailored to your pregnancy, your birth & baby preparation, you and your baby and for you as a parent.
  • Postnatal Sessions
    Online and face-to-face small groups for conversations and questions to gather reliable information, support and reassurance.

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 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.

You can also access free resources

“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 beyond the postnatal period, there are
coaching consultations to focus on you, the person behind the parent.

If you have any queries about how I can help you, you can send me a message here.

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.
