Sleepy Mother Cuppa

Having a baby is pretty hard work and sleep deprivation can be a huge part of that – it’s a very normal part of life with a baby but it can also leave you feeling like you are doing something wrong or that you are missing something. There isn’t a miracle answer for baby sleep – otherwise we’d all do it – but support, reassurance and discussing ideas can make a difference and make you feel less isolated.

This is why I am introducing Sleepy Mother Cuppa to give tired mums a much needed boost. It will be an informal & relaxed session with tea, coffee and cake to talk through sleep and lack of it and discuss ideas for sleep, naps and getting more rest. It’s also about providing a safe space for you to offload and to get the support you need.

It is going to run monthly to start with but I may introduce another session if that feels needed.

2020 session dates
January 16 – February 13 – March 12 – May 14 – June 11 – July 16 – September 10 – October 8 – November 12 – December 10
Mother Cuppa takes place in North Shields

With Janine Smith
specialist in pregnancy & birth, early parenting and parent wellbeing

I have worked with parents since 2002 and, as a practitioner with professional training and experience, I am trusted to provide a balance of reliable knowledge, non-judgemental support and much needed reassurance.

My approach is not to tell you what to do – it is to listen, to provide you with the opportunity to ask questions, it is about providing ideas and information, helping you to formulate plans and to find what works for you and for your family.

Just get in touch to book your place…

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.
