Free Resources

There are several ways to access free resources about pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

Notes For Parents

Regular and brief emails, which won’t take up much of your precious time. They aim to be useful, giving you information, a boost, an idea, motivation and encouragement you to look after you.


This will be launching soon.

Mother Cuppa Magazine

I am on a mission to provide a range of really good, practical knowledge so you can plan, do, adjust and look after you and the needs of your family. Mother Cuppa Magazine is about you.

Guides & Checklists

There are 5 free practical guides for labour & birth:

  • Essentials For Labour & Birth
  • Going Over Your Due Date
  • Tips For Labour & Birth
  • Your Birth Bag
  • Your Birth Plan

There are 4 checklists:

  • Pregnancy
  • Labour & Birth
  • New Baby
  • Pregnancy, Birth & Baby Again


These challenges will feature on my social media, as well as with regular posts here on my website.

  • Relax & Breathe Challenge – for everyone to use, to focus on bringing simple and effective relaxation and breathing techniques into each day.
  • Do Birth On Purpose Challenge – for anyone who is pregnant, to think about about what might need for the birth.
  • Mother Cuppa Challenge – to focus on you as a parent, to think about what’s going well and where the challenges are and to look at how you can ease any stress and tiredness.

You can also sign up for Notes For Parents to be sent links to these challenges.

Social Media

You can also follow my social media accounts: Instagram | Facebook | Pinterest for regular posts and stories.

With a calm and knowledgeable approach, my aim is informed and confident parents.

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.
