My practice is about having a dependable place so don’t feel like you are doing this on your own.

From pregnancy and to life as a parent, I am here for you every step of the way.

“You really helped to turn what started as the scariest time of my life into the best 10 months of my life.”


For parents across Tyneside with my weekly postnatal group.

And for parents everywhere, I am creating an online space for you to ask questions and gather information.


Welcome to my practice

As a specialist practitioner, working with expectant and new parents since 2002, I focus on consultations, courses and content to inform, support and reassure.

As expectant and new parents you might sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of information and advice offered to you. It is also easy to feel frustrated and lost with information that may be incorrect, inconsistent and just not right for you.

By providing reliable information – based on evidence and experience – while also listening to you, I can focus on your questions and your need for knowledge, strategies and reassurance.

You will benefit from clear, practical and honest knowledge to be an informed and confident parent and to find what works best for you.

“You were awesome throughout pregnancy and afterwards – I learnt so much and I felt supported and listened to.”


These private sessions are tailored to you during pregnancy, for your birth & baby preparation, with your baby and for you as a parent.

Sessions can be in-person or by video call.

Courses & Guides

You can access a range of antenatal and postnatal courses to go through at your own pace, with personalised resources and follow-up emails to see how you are getting on.

Small Groups

These face-to-face small group sessions are for conversations and questions to gather reliable information, support and reassurance.

Content For Parents

The articles and posts I write are created to inform, reassure, empower and boost during pregnancy, for birth, with a baby and throughout life with a young family.

With practical articles, comment and experiences, there is something for all parents. While I do share knowledge, my aim is not to be the expert, I want to encourage discussion and a focus on you and your family.

As a parent, the core of it all is you. You are the person who is pregnant, you are the person who births and it is you who parents. You make the decisions, you feel the emotions, you live with the decisions, you get through the days and you try to do the right thing. My practice is about you.
