Is your baby due in June, July or August?

If you are starting to think about preparing for the birth of your baby, here’s what I have coming up for you.

I run a range of birth preparation options to meet your different needs for information, practical skills and birth mindset. My aim is to prepare and empower so you can plan and know your options.

Individual Appointments

I see expectant parents for 1:1 sessions to focus on a range of pregnancy & birth issues: anxiety, birth debrief, birth refresher, labour & birth, induction preparation, caesarean preparation and to focus on any concerns you may have.

Daytime, evening and Saturday sessions are available to work around your schedule.
