Pregnancy & Birth Wellbeing

20190408_124141_00003175002836543152951.pngIf you are pregnant and you are preparing for the birth of your baby, these sessions are for you. With professional antenatal classes, relax & breathe sessions and individual appointments you will benefit from good information, practical skills, discussion, the chance to speak and to ask questions.

In pregnancy I can see you to talk through any anxiety, to have a birth debrief or to talk through pregnancy after babyloss. For birth I run small group antenatal classes for effective birth preparation, which can also take place as individual appointments. The aim is for me to listen, to prepare and to empower and that is all about your wellbeing in pregnancy, as well as your wellbeing during the birth of your baby.

I see parents face-to-face and I am also in the process of developing on-line and phone sessions.

You can read more about the range of antenatal classes here and if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.

A specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting

I am a specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting – I have worked with expectant parents since 2002 and I have taught antenatal classes almost weekly since 2005.  Due to being NCT-trained, my knowledge and experience, I provide good information, practical skills and discussion for all expectant parents. My sessions are friendly and informal – not like a classroom – with small groups and individual appointments so you can ask questions and gather all the information you need to be prepared and empowered for the unpredictability of labour and birth.
In addition to general birth preparation, I specialise in being parent-focused so I run sessions for specific issues such as birth anxiety, giving birth again, being induced, planned caesareans and arranging a homebirth. I am a mum of three and I have also worked as a birth doula, so I have attended a number of births.
