about us

Being both a mother and qualified midwives, having experience in all areas of antenatal care and a background in counselling and group work, we understand the challenges of preparing for labour and birth, not to mention becoming a new parent.

With a passion for sharing comprehensive, balanced information in a fun and friendly environment, we hope you leave feeling equipped, confident, supported and excited.

Whether you choose an evening group session, weekend setting, one off supplementary group, post-natal support or even on a one-to-one basis in the comfort of your own home, our modern approach to delivering accessible antenatal education, the information shared is up-to-date, evidence-based and appropriate to you.

We believe knowledge and information are powerful tools when it comes to understanding and preparing for what lays ahead. The subjects are extensive and thorough, providing an insight to all aspects covered, encouraging discussion and strategy building.  

Our holistic approach recognises that, from the beginning of labour right through to a new life as a mummy or daddy and the postnatal period - with all it entails - your physical and emotional health and well-being are equally important.

Its all about getting you off to the right start, ready for the next step in becoming a family and able to enjoy every minute.

What will it be like?                                                                                                                  What to do.                                                                           Who can I ask?                      

                                                                                                           Is this normal?        

                                            What can I expect?                                                                                                       Being a new parent.

Our Services

 

Antenatal Groups

Friendly, informal small groups held over four weeks, in an evening, covering a comprehensive list of subjects from preparation for labour and birth through to the transition to parenthood and everything in between.  Available to both individuals or couples.


Weekend sessions

If you can't make an evening, we can offer a weekend session to cover the same content in one go. 


supplementary one-off sessions

For some, it may be you prefer to brush up on some information picked up in previous pregnancies or want to add on extra sessions to your four weeks. These sessions may be just right.  They are one off supplementary groups available for a single payment and covering a single topic.  

 


post-natal support social group

Open to all, this group is a place to get together with your baby and catch up with new friends, chat and have a cuppa in a  relaxed environment.  With a midwife on hand to offer support and to signpost you to the right people if an extra hand is needed.

 

bespoke services

If you prefer the idea of doing any of this in private in your own home or prefer days to evenings, you might want to know about our bespoke service.  Charged by the hour. we can come to you and deliver, from a range of subjects chosen  from our 'menu', as much or little as you like.  You can have this in one session or you can opt for more - entirely up to you.  Available to individuals, couples or small groups.

 

I have been using The Walking Rovers since they trained my husky, Cyrus, as a pup. Cyrus is now five years old. The faces sometimes change, but each dog walker and sitter has been consistently compassionate and diligent.
