North East Birth & Baby

Where you can read, learn and talk about pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

After working with parents for 20 years, I am developing a trusted source of information, support and reassurance for parents across the North East.

I am building a space where you can read, learn and talk about the different aspects of pregnancy, birth, babies and early parenting.

You can follow me on Instagram and Facebook so you get all the posts and updates and can take a wander around the website, which is packed full of useful articles and guides.

Content for parents

With essential posts, resources, tips and experiences, North East Birth & Baby is about good information and reassurance – all based on evidence and experience.

North East Birth & Baby will…

  • provide knowledge with a solid foundation of trustworthy information
  • talk about the reality of pregnancy, birth, life with a baby and early parenting
  • give you information about North East maternity units as well as links to other local support and services for parents

North East Birth & Baby is part of the Janine Smith Practice

And then there’s me – I am Janine, an experienced antenatal and postnatal practitioner and writer.

I have 3 children, 2 nephews and I have worked with thousands 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 best for you and your family.

If you are pregnant or you have a baby, please do take a wander around the website. And please do share with other parents – that’s the only way I can reach as many families as possible.

Thank you!

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.
