A few words about why I offer birth preparation consultations…

After running group antenatal classes for many years, I started to be asked for individual sessions by expectant parents who struggled to commit to a course, didn’t fancy a group or had a specific focus.

I now specialise in running consultations – they give you the time to properly focus and ask questions and they can work around your schedule.

Labour and birth is very personal and it makes a difference to have personalised sessions that are tailored to you.

Please feel free to message me here with any queries.
