Janine Smith practitioner

My practice is about listening to you, not telling you what you should be doing. It is a safe, comfortable, helpful place for you to gather all the information, support and reassurance you need for pregnancy & birth, for your baby and for you as a parent.

I am a warm and down-to-earth practitioner and I am a professional listener – so you can talk through your experiences, fears, challenges and struggles – and I also know a thing or two about pregnancy, birth, babies and supporting parents.

If you would like more information about any of my sessions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
