The Birth & Baby Blog

For pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

After working with parents for 20 years, I wanted to create a trusted source of information, support and reassurance for expectant and new parents.

This is a space where you can read, learn and talk about the many different aspects of pregnancy, birth, babies and early parenting.

You can follow my posts here, as well as on Instagram, and you can also join the conversation over on Substack.

Hello – I am Janine, an antenatal and postnatal practitioner and writer.

I have three children, three young nephews and I have worked with hundreds of parents over the last 20 years.

I am passionate about working with parents and providing a solid foundation of information, skills and support. In a world of conflicting information and experts, my practice is based on evidence, experience and listening to parents.

My expertise as a practitioner lies in providing reassurance, a listening ear and confidence boosts so you can find what works for you and your family.

If you are pregnant or you have a baby, please take a wander around the website and I’d love it if you could share with other parents.

Thank you!
