For Your Pregnancy

Pregnancy Consultations – Giving you the opportunity to ask questions, gather information and talk through decisions and any worries. Pregnancy can be an exciting time but some women can feel isolated, anxious and in need of a listening ear. These sessions have been developed to provide you with ongoing support and reassurance.

Based on experience, evidence and proven skills & strategies, this is a thorough course to reassuringly prepare you for labour, birth and life with your new baby.
This course is not about birth or babies being easy, it is about good knowledge, managing challenges, knowing your options and what you can do.

It comes with resources to read, listen to and use at home in your own time, including the Relax & Breathe Course.

Relax & Breathe Course – the complete guide to using your breathing

What parents say

“Before I went into labour I was pretty scared but it was ok. I knew to go with it, to work with my contractions. I was much calmer that I expected – your course was invaluable.”

“Janine is calm and supportive and she gives confidence when you doubt everything you do.”

With a qualified & experienced antenatal teacher

As a qualified practitioner, I am trusted to provide reliable knowledge, non-judgemental support and reassurance.

My approach is to listen, to provide an experienced perspective, to help you to formulate plans and find what works for you and for your family.

I don’t have any agenda about what you ‘should’ do or about what type of birth is best, my role is to use my experience to provide you with good information so you are better equipped to navigate the unpredictability of birth as well as the chaos of early parenthood.

Based in the North East, I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across Tyneside. With digital courses and online video sessions I now work with parents everywhere.
