Antenatal classes

Antenatal classes

During my midwifery career I have been fortunate enough to run many antenatal courses, for the NHS, imparting valuable advice to many families expecting a new baby.

My courses are designed to prepare you for labour, delivery and for caring for your infant.

Breastfeeding support

Breastfeeding support

I pioneered the breastfeeding cafes in Lewisham, opening the Bellingham Green Café in the early 2000’s.  Both my daughters were breastfed for over 12 months.

My experience is both practical and knowledge based. During my career I sat on the committee working towards UNICEF baby friendly status for Lewisham Hospital.

I offer home visit advice and hope to empower you to be confident in feeding your baby.

Breast feeding support £60 per hour

Children under 18 months can be brought to the course.

Baby massage


"I have just finished a baby massage course with Suzanne and I cannot recommend her classes enough.

She is so knowledgeable and incredibly generous with her time. It's obvious that she has loved her career as a midwife and seems to really care about each mother and baby. She has a rare gift of being able to put people immediately at ease and these classes were invaluable in the first stressful weeks of motherhood. Great way to meet other local mums. Can't recommend highly enough" Charlotte

I believe with the right support and encouragement, we can all find the parent within us. My experience is both professional and personal; I am a Mum and Grandma."
