Business Network

business network 3

The Birth, Baby & Family Business Network is a pool of specialist knowledge, services and practitioners.

As a trusted source of information for parents and families from pregnancy through to teenagers, it is essential for me to be able to provide links to the best services, products and practitioners for children, parents and families across Newcastle & Tyneside. I only work alongside businesses who are experienced, professional, recommended and who fit in well with the supportive ethos of Birth, Baby & Family.

Supporting small businesses is important to me and this is a network of wonderful people who are passionate about what they do, who are excellent at what they do and I recommend them to parents…

The Core Team of Specialists is made up of…

The Birth, Baby & Family Practice – antenatal classes, postnatal support, baby massage, weaning an ongoing parent support
