For your pregnancy & birth

Congratulations on your pregnancy and I hope you are feeling well.

No two pregnancies are ever the same and this can be a time of new information, change and a range of emotions.

With a strong foundation of knowledge you can be well-informed during your pregnancy and as you prepare for birth and the arrival of your new baby.


Good information – based on evidence and experience – means you will know more about your pregnancy, your antenatal care, and your options, with a focus on your wellbeing.

Pregnancy Consultations

While pregnancy can be an exciting time, it is also normal to feel isolated, unsupported and in need of a listening ear. With pregnancy consultations, you can benefit from ongoing support to ask questions, gather information and talk through decisions as well as any worries.

Antenatal Courses & Guides

With digital courses and workshops, you will have a foundation of knowledge and strategies at your fingertips.

There is:

  • the relax & breathe course, to focus on an essential toolkit of techniques for pregnancy, birth and when your baby is here

With each of these options you will benefit from resources you can read and use in your own time.

You can also include consultations to talk it through, ask questions and focus on your individual birth and baby preparation.

“The self doubt I had about the physicalities of giving birth were immense. I can still very clearly remember our sessions – you were so reassuring, you listened to me so I felt heard and you gave me amazing, practical steps I could take during birth, whatever might happen.

I’ll always recommend you!”

“You made a massive difference to me! I can’t believe it’s been a year and I’m still forever grateful.

I couldn’t have approached labour how I did without the work you did with me following the trauma of my firstborn and the breathing techniques went an incredibly long way too!”
