New Baby Consultations


Becoming a parent and bringing your new baby home can be a bit daunting – these private sessions are all about helping you to find your feet as a parent in those early days and weeks with your baby.

This is about reassurance with feeding – breast and bottle; sleep; settling & soothing your baby; what to expect and what is ‘normal’ plus reassurance for you as you adjust to the responsibility of looking after your new baby.

It can also be about practical support for you when you get home from hospital – to make sure you are as comfortable as possible so you can rest and recover in those early days.

I am able to provide daytime, evening and weekend appointments to best suit you. I visit parents from across Tyneside & Newcastle.
£35 for up to 2 hours


“Thanks so much for coming out to see us  – we needed to speak to someone who could give us some practical support and reassurance among all the chaos of not knowing what we were doing!”

“I feel so much better after our chat, we’ve made a few changes in the house so I am more comfortable and I am now giving myself the chance to rest for a few days.”


with Janine Smith | a specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting

I have worked with parents since 2002 and, as a practitioner with professional training and experience, I am trusted to provide a balance of reliable knowledge, non-judgemental support and much needed reassurance.

My approach is not about telling you what to do – it is to listen, to provide you with the opportunity to ask questions, it is about providing ideas and information, helping you to formulate plans and to find what works for you and for your family.

The focus is on your wellbeing in pregnancy, for birth, as a parent and as you, the person behind the parent and I have created informal but effective small group and 1:1 sessions to benefit you.
