Beyond Birth


Beyond Birth…antenatal preparation for you and your new baby

This is a brilliant little session for you as expectant parents to focus on:

  • what your new baby needs
  • what you need as a new parent
  • what to expect from your new baby – sleep, feeding, attachment – to take you through the essentials for the early days and weeks as parents
  • birth recovery – the first days and weeks
  • coping strategies and self-care as a new parent
  • support & services you can access if you need them
  • your need for information and reassurance

My aim is to prepare and empower you with good information, practical skills and discussion so you have had the chance to think about what to expect from your new baby and from yourself as a new parent.

This session is based on first-hand experience and up-to-date research and it has been designed to focus on the reality of the first few days and weeks with your new baby. I run small groups so you can ask all the questions you need.

It is accompanied by a toolkit of resources to use and read at home and you can be added to my private Facebook group for ongoing information and reassurance.

A specialist in pregnancy & birth, early parenting and parent wellbeing

I have worked with parents since 2002 and, as a practitioner with professional training and experience, I am trusted to provide a balance of reliable knowledge, non-judgemental support and much needed reassurance.

My job is not to tell you what to do – it is to listen, to provide you with the opportunity to ask questions, it is about providing ideas and information, helping you to formulate plans and to find what works for you and for your family.

The focus is on your wellbeing in pregnancy, for birth, as a parent and as you, the person behind the parent and I have created informal but effective small group and 1:1 sessions to benefit you.
