Pregnancy Support


Pregnancy support can be valuable because, in addition to being an exciting and brilliant time, it can also be an emotional time with additional worries and concerns.

At some point during your pregnancy, you may need to talk through a previous birth, the loss of a baby or any anxieties about having a baby and the change that can bring with it. It can be a time where you may feel isolated, unsupported and in need of a listening ear and some reassurance.

Private pregnancy support sessions can be arranged at a time to suit you – daytime, evening and weekend appointments are available to best suit you.  Appointments can take place in my teaching space in North Shields or I can come to your home (if you live outside North Tyneside there may be an additional travel fee).

“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.”

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.
