Hello, my name is Jen and I have formed The Nurture Pad to provide parents with a one-stop shop for pregnancy, antenatal, birth and post-pregnancy services. With a full range of support and guidance, The Nurture Pad is able to support you through pregnancy, birth and beyond. Based in beautiful North Yorkshire, my services cover Stokesley, Yarm, Middlesborough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees. I also support Mums, babies and families in the villages, in-and-around North Yorkshire and the Tees Valley.
As a qualified, and registered Antenatal Educator, KG Hypnobirthing Practitioner, Early Years Professional, Teacher and Psychology graduate, I offer a range of specialised services. These all form part of a caring, nurturing, and holistic approach to helping your family grow and develop.
As part of The Nurture Pad, you will be guaranteed the highest level of service, outstanding support and a place to learn, grow and thrive. I am a member of KG Hypnobirthing, The Federation of Antenatal Educators and the International Institute for Complementary Therapists. I have qualifications in Hypnosis, Neuro-linguistic Programming, CBT and Mindfulness. My KG Hypnobirthing training and Baby Massage training is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives, ensuring the highest standards.
Here at The Nurture Pad, antenatal education covers many different aspects, including both your's and baby's physical, and emotional needs. Typically, antenatal courses guide you and your partner, during:
With many years experience working in the sector, I am able to support each stage seamlessly, allowing you and your partner to plan in pregnancy, and beyond. Research, and solid evidence, has shown continuity of care in pregnancy, birth and the early days of parenting provides the best outcomes for both Mum and baby. This is on a physical and psychological level. At The Nurture Pad, with a choice of individual and group support, you are able to take the approach, and access the services you feel most comfortable with.
Each service I offer, is tailored to meet the needs of individuals and couples. I take the time to listen to your concerns, your hopes and your wishes and encourage parents-to-be, to make contact in the very early stages of pregnancy as well as the latter.
Following on from antenatal classes and Hypnobirthing, the Nurture Pad's support and guidance does not stop once baby has arrived. Having trained Nannies, Maternity Nurses and Early Years professionals, as well as working each of these roles, I really understand the realities of early parenting. I have a huge interest in what is now referred to as The Fourth Trimester - a special, and critical time for Mum, baby and family. I am able to offer you short-term, and emergency Maternity Nurse services, helping you in the early days of parenting in your own home.
With The Nurture Pad, you are able to access a range of services to include Baby Massage, Baby Sleep Support and Maternity Nurse services. Guiding and supporting you through the Early Days of Parenting, and beyond, I offer non-judgmental care. My aim is to help you enjoy the early days with your family, your baby and to promote optimal health and wellness.
I love to get to know my Mum's, Partner's & Babies. Please feel free to contact me for an appointment to discuss how I can meet your needs.
Pregnancy, birth and parenting can seem overwhelming and an emotional roller-coaster. It does not need to be, and together we can tailor an approach to support your physical and emotional needs. With my support and guidance, you will be comfortable with your choices, well-informed and empowered.
