Beyond Birth

baby preparation

Beyond Birth is about having good information, practical skills and reassurance as you adjust to life with your new baby.

Based on my experience as an antenatal teacher, a doula and postnatal group leader, I have designed this informal session to focus on:

  • what to expect from your new baby
  • preparing your home for your new baby so you are more comfortable
  • birth recovery
  • coping strategies and self-care as a parent with a new baby
  • links to postnatal support & services

This session will give you the chance to think what you might need for you and for your new baby during those early days and weeks. You will also know more about some of the normal new-born challenges and how to manage them.

You will benefit from:
*a calm knowledgeable approach
*personalised sessions with an experienced practitioner
*practical resources and downloads to use in pregnancy, during labour and when your baby is here
*ongoing information, support and reassurance


“With your knowledge, experience and empathy you make a difference to new parents.”

“It was really great to focus on being at home in those early days with our baby – we wouldn’t have thought of some of your simple suggestions and they really did make a difference.”

Your 1:1 sessions can be in-person if you live on Tyneside or by video call. Appointments can be made at a time to best suit you.
