Pregnancy consultations can be valuable because, in addition to being an exciting and brilliant time, pregnancy can also be a time of gathering information, making decisions and managing any worries and concerns.
At some point during your pregnancy, you may need to talk through:
your antenatal care
where to have your baby, including at home
a previous birth
the loss of a baby and the anxiety that can come with being pregnant again
any anxieties about having a baby and the changes that can
bring with it
Pregnancy can be a time where you may feel isolated, unsupported and in need of a listening ear, reassurance and some thinking space.
These sessions are for you to focus on your need for information, support or reassurance and they can be arranged at a time to suit you:
Monday: 10am, 4pm & 7pm
Wednesday: 4pm & 7pm
Thursday: 10am, 4pm & 7pm
Friday: 4pm & 7pm
Saturday: 10am & 1pm
Appointments can take place in my teaching space in North Shields or it may be possible to come to your home. I also provide phone and video sessions if you live further away.
£50 | up to 2 hours
£40 | 90-minute follow-on sessions
“It was great to be able to focus on my anxieties during my pregnancy, I felt quite isolated and I just needed the space to talk it all through and make sense of it.”
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 about telling 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.
Just get in touch to find out more about the pregnancy sessions…
