Welcome to Birth Prep with Joy, where the path to pregnancy and parenthood is guided by wisdom, wrapped in warmth, and custom tailored to you!


Pregnant women at Birth Prep with Joy Antenatal Course

 ... on your pregnancy. With more than 17 years of experience, supporting 1000s of expectant parents I reject the  one-size-fits-all approach to antenatal education. Instead, I embrace the unique path of every expecting parent.

Since 2007, I've created  in-person and online antenatal courses and hypnobirthing programs which are a departure from the class-room style approach. Think laughter embraces learning, all anchored in sold science-backed evidence with informed decision making at the heart of my courses.


Ready to experience pregnancy and parenthood in a whole new light?

Welcome to this exciting new chapter ....

The thrilling and occasionally nerve-tingling journey towards parenthood is an emotional rollercoaster ride, whether you're in a couple, embracing single parenthood, or anywhere in between. I'm proud to be an LGBTQ+ friendly space, where everyone is welcomed with warmth.

Whether you're joining me in West Lothian or cosied up online, my birth preparation courses offer more than just knowledge; they offer connection, empowerment, support and a non-judgemental approach to your antenatal care. 


Let's embark on this life changing journey from pregnancy to labour, and birth into early parenthood, all with a personal touch.
