Mother Cuppa


Mother Cuppa
an informal session with conversation, discussion, practical information and reassurance for mums on maternity leave – from pregnancy and with your baby.

This is a small, friendly group, run by an experienced postnatal group leader and a specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting, so we can talk about. a range of issues…


recovery from birth | sleep & exhaustion | feeding | growth spurts | what’s normal & what to expect | being a mum | loss of identity |feeling isolated | relationship changes | low mood & anxiety | how tough it can be | how bloody brilliant it can be | how amazing you are!

It is all about a warm welcome, a cosy and safe space with conversation, tea, cake and fresh coffee. It has been designed to be supportive and friendly so you can sit back and unwind – there is nothing else like it for mums.

“It’s an oasis of calm in the middle of the week, to chat, to offload and get a bit of boost during tough weeks.”

Mother Cuppa runs on Newcastle Street in North Shields and it is attended by mums from across Tyneside, Newcastle and Northumberland.

With Janine Smith
A specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting

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 approach 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.
