With Janine Smith | A specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting

As an experienced antenatal teacher, I have taught antenatal classes and birth preparation sessions since 2002.

As part of your effective birth preparation, these are your options:

  • you can book 1:1 sessions with me to talk it though, to ask questions and to feel better equipped for birth and the arrival of your new baby.
  • you can complete the antenatal classes, which is a complete course for labour, birth and baby.
  • a range of digital birth workshops are available.

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.
