Tyneside Antenatal Classes

preparing for birth

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I am here to help prepare you for labour, birth and life with your new baby with a range of antenatal classes and sessions.

Due to my training and experience I am able to provide good information, practical skills, discussion and an opportunity for you to ask questions, so the sessions are tailored to your needs.

Reasons to book my antenatal classes

My antenatal classes are held in North Shields and they are attended by expectant parents from across Tyneside and Newcastle. 1:1 sessions can take place at your house or mine.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.

Booking onto any of these antenatal session also includes:

•The Labour & Birth Handbooks
•Email/phone support in early labour and during the first week with your new baby
•10% discount on a baby massage course

I am a specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting – I have worked with expectant parents since 2002 and I have taught antenatal classes almost weekly since 2005.  Due to being NCT-trained and my knowledge, training and experience, I am able to provide information, support and reassurance for all expectant parents. My sessions are friendly and informal – not like a classroom – with small groups and 1:1 sessions so you can ask questions and gather all the information you need. In addition to general birth preparation, I specialise in being parent-focused so I can provide support for specific issues such as birth anxiety, giving birth again, being induced, planned caesareans and homebirths. I am a mum of three and I have also worked as a birth doula, so I have attended a number of births. If you have any queries, just send me a message. Janine x
