Conversations, Janine Smith

Here’s what we talked about this week

These are some of the questions asked and conversations with parents this week.

  • baby sleep
  • toddler sleep
  • epidurals, managing them and your options
  • being induced and your options
  • moving and using positions in labour and for birth
  • birth debrief
  • how to use your breathing so it makes a difference
  • birth expectations

No two weeks are ever the same and consultations with me are booked for very different reasons.

I have worked with expectant and new parents for abut 20 years and I know there are very few solutions – it is too unique for that. What makes a difference is good information – based on evidence and experience – with good support and a good dollop of reassurance. This is what I do, this is the foundation of my practice.

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.
