As an experienced antenatal & postnatal practitioner, I have worked with parents since 2002

As part of the first year with your baby, there are some postnatal options:

    • you can book 1:1 sessions with me to talk it though, ask questions and to feel more informed, supported and reassured
    • a range of postnatal guides are available: the 4th trimester, baby sleep, how babies work, being a mum and going back to work

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
