Every birthing person should have information and support to experience birth and parenthood in the way that they choose

My name is Mel and All Things Birth & Beyond is here to provide a safe & trusted organisation for you to access any service that you could possibly want or need in preparing for and welcoming your baby into the world.

Having a baby is about so much more than just Labour & Birth, & there are many moments along the journey where support can make all the difference.

Our services are designed to provide exactly that tailored support, from engaging in empowered online programmes to hiring a Doula, establishing optimal feeding, getting to grips with new-born sleep, postnatal recovery, & even meal delivery or pamper packages for the 4th trimester when self-care & healing is so vitally important.

Postnatal support, especially if your birth has not gone to plan, can make all the difference in your physical & emotional recovery. We offer a bespoke Birth Trauma Recovery service that considers your unique experience & supports you in your wellbeing journey.

Your wellness is our priority

Shared-Care Birth Doula Services
Online Programmes & Community
Motherhood Mentorship
Transformational Breastfeeding Coaching & Lactation Consultancy

Park Psychology Services provide specialist autism and ADHD assessments for both children and adults, and we also undertake cognitive and learning disability assessments. Alongside this, we also offer therapeutic support for people following a diagnosis, or for those who self-identify as neurodivergent.

Our team includes Clinical Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, and Consultant Psychiatrists. We are professionals who have worked both privately and within NHS services for a number of years. We also have personal experience of neurodivergence and know how difficult the process of seeking and having an assessment can be. We complete NICE Guideline compliant assessments and provide detailed reports that include comprehensive recommendations. For children, we are able to refer you onto our private Consultant Psychiatrist if you wish to explore medication options following an ADHD diagnosis. You are also able to share the report with NHS services to seek this support, too.

It matters to us that people are able to access the support that is right for them, and we are proud to be able to provide much-needed assessment and therapeutic support to our community. If you think we might be able to help, please get in touch with us.
