It is important to me to return to some face-to-face sessions for ongoing information, support and reassurance when it is needed.

My small group sessions are about a warm welcome and a safe space for conversation, questions, support and reassurance.

These are face-to-face sessions so they ideal for parents from across Newcastle and Tyneside.

Mother Cuppa Groups

There is a Walk & Talk session on Wednesdays at 10am at North Shields Fish Quay, followed by a cafe session at 11am.

Baby Workshops

From January 2022 I will be running small group sessions at the Wow Centre in Newcastle.

These will include:

  • how babies work
  • baby sleep
  • weaning
  • going back to work after maternity leave

How do the group sessions work?

I always keep group sizes small with up to 6 people so the sessions are informal and welcoming.

My sessions are about conversation, discussion, questions and peace of mind.

Everyone who books consultations and courses with me will also be included in the my new online community group for ongoing conversation and reassurance.

“You provide such a welcoming and supportive environment for parents.”

“I totally recommend Janine – she has so much knowledge and she really reassured me that it’s all normal, and we’re doing great!””

“Probably without realising it, you have made a huge difference to my first few months as a mum.”

“Thank you for all your support – you brought me reassurance and calm in the early weeks and months with my baby.”

With a calm and knowledgeable approach, my aim is to provide the knowledge, support and reassurance you need to be informed and confident.
