Many parents prepare nurseries, shop around for baby gear and attend birth classes, but have you thought about how life will be once baby arrives?
I can help you think through recovery, managing relationships, support and other areas essential for your postnatal time.
I can support you in preparing for your postnatal time, either over the phone, online or in person. A one-hour session costs £25, or you can book this as part of your Postnatal Support time.
Once your baby arrives I can support you at the hospital or at home to settle in with your new baby.
This might include baby care, supporting feeding, some light housework, cooking, debriefing your labour, supporting your rest and recovery, and other ways I can walk alongside your family during the early weeks.
Ideally, before your baby arrives we meet to explore your postnatal plan and so I can get to know you and your family better.
I am currently a mentored postnatal doula so I offer a discounted fee of £20 an hour.
We all make different choices about how we feed our babies. I'm here to support you in how you would like to feed your baby. I have experience in breastfeeding, bottle feeding and expressing.
This support will be offered as part of my normal doula services.
I am currently training as a Breastfeeding Counsellor with the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (ABM).
I do not offer and charge for standalone breastfeeding support.
