4th Trimester

4th trimester

The 4th trimester is a very special time – it is a time of adjustment and of getting to know your new baby. Some babies are born ready for the world and others need another 3 months to adjust.

Being a parent is very similar so it can be essential to give yourself another trimester to adjust to being a parent and to get to know your baby. You also need to give yourself some time to heal from pregnancy and birth. This can be a time to keep things simple and slow.

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.
