  • nausea and sickness
  • strong sense of smell and taste
  • sore boobs
  • exhaustion
  • a need to wee more often
  • headaches

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.
