I want you to have a dependable place so don’t feel like you are doing this on your own.

From pregnancy and to life as a parent, this practice is 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.”

Notes For Parents

You can also sign up for the free Notes For Parents newsletter.

From pregnancy to the teenage years, these notes are short but useful so you can read them in bed, as you make a brew or on the go.


For knowledge & confidence

This practice is a place for you to read and talk about pregnancy, birth, babies and early parenting.

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.

With information – based on evidence and experience – and sessions which focus on you, you will be:

  • listened to
  • well informed
  • able to find what works best for you and your family
  • reassured and supported

You can arrange 1:1 sessions and support, use a range of resources and read posts in your own time.

“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.

Digital Courses & Guides

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

Weekly Group

This small group is for expectant and new parents across Tyneside. With conversations, company and a place to ask questions you can 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. 

You can also follow me on social media for more information, discussion and to be part of the conversation about pregnancy, birth and early parenting
