The birthing programme is delivered in group classes in Brampton (CA8) or Carlisle (CA2) over two Sundays.

Alternatively I offer private sessions in your home at a mutually agreed time and can be more flexible in its approach and includes an introduction to breastfeeding.

I am happy to travel anywhere in North Cumbria and the Tyne Valley up to and including Corbridge (NE45).

Group classes £200 - Private Tuition £350

Please see calendar below for class dates.

Just Be: Breastfeeding

The first few weeks of your baby’s life are a melting pot of joy, exhaustion, apprehension and most of all… LOVE. As a new mum nourishing your baby is an overwhelming instinct and there is no substitute for breast milk. However something that is so natural can be tricky to establish. I offer you a breastfeeding antenatal session at home and/or support in the first few days or weeks.

Antenatal class £25

Breastfeeding support in your home £30
