With pregnancy consultations, you have an opportunity to ask questions, gather information and talk through decisions as well as any worries. While pregnancy can be an exciting time, it is also normal to feel isolated, unsupported and in need of a listening ear.
You can talk through:
- your antenatal care
- where to have your baby, including at home
- a previous birth
- the loss of a baby and the anxiety that can come with being pregnant again
- any anxieties about having a baby and the changes that can bring with it
- any worries or concerns
- low mood or anxiety
- managing stress
Pregnancy Consultations: what parents say
“It was great to be able to focus on my anxieties during my pregnancy, I felt quite isolated and I just needed the space to talk it all through and make sense of it.”
“My husband and I met with Janine to discuss having a home birth and for general advise and guidance. Janine was so knowledgeable and gave us a wide range of information and points to consider in preparation for the birth. Janine made us feel totally relaxed and at home during the session and we can’t thank her enough for her time. We have since attended postnatal sessions with Janine because she has such a wide range of support available.”
“I have had three sessions with Janine and it was really useful to talk through my anxiety, to have a birth debrief and to think about what I need to feel calmer, more supported and making decisions for labour and birth again.

A few words about why I offer pregnancy consultations…
Pregnancy can sometimes be isolating, when parents can benefit from some time to ask questions, to feel supported and to work through worries or practical issues.
Having worked with expectant parents for almost 20 years it feels important to provide a space for these sessions, which are often additional to birth preparation and can focus on issues around anxiety and mental health.
Please feel free to message me here with any queries.
My face-to-face groups are ideal for parents across Newcastle & Tyneside. With video sessions and digital courses, I also work with parents and families from across the UK as well as internationally.
