North East Birth & Baby

Making a difference to expectant and new parents…

After working with parents for 20 years, I want to develop 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.

My practice gives you:

  • a range of digital courses and guides plus access to posts and articles to read in your own time
  • face-to-face & video consultations
  • a membership for ongoing information and workshops
  • a regular newsletter

It is about good, realistic information, support and reassurance – based on evidence and experience.

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

North East Birth & Baby aims to…

  1. Enrich early family life
    With trustworthy information based on evidence and experience
  2. Inform and educate
    With a solid foundation of knowledge
  3. Listen and reassure
    To ensure that you are heard, so you can ask questions, share your challenges and feel supported
  4. Empower and boost
    So you have the confidence to find what works for you and your family

good communication

North East Birth & Baby
where you can talk and read about pregnancy, birth and early parenting

I have worked with parents since 2002, providing a range of pregnancy, birth and postnatal sessions. My practice is about good information, support and reassurance, along with a friendly welcome and a calm, knowledgeable approach.

If you are pregnant or you have a baby, please do take a wander around the website – it is packed with information and tips – and you can send me a message here to ask about any of my sessions.

And please do share with other parents – that’s the only way I can manage the algorithm and 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.
