Postnatal Support

It is important for mums to rest and recover after giving birth, and my time with you is to care for and support you emotionally, physically, practically and to provide evidence- based information for answers to any questions you have in the early weeks.

By taking some of the day-to-day pressures away, supporting you with newborn tasks and to be there as your non- judgmental safe place, my aim is to help you be able to focus on your needs and bonding with your baby so you can enjoy and cherish this special time within your family bubble.

I will support you to build confidence in yourself, to trust your instincts and to become the new parent that you know you can be or help with easing your newest arrival into your eagerly awaiting family.

I feel very passionately about the special time mother and baby have together after birth, the moment from meeting each other for the first time to growing and learning together in this early stage is precious.

If you are having a C Section, have a partner who is away or who has to get straight back to work, if you are going solo or your family are not as close as you would like to help support you at this life changing time, this could be the package for you.


What I offer

Package support will depend on your needs, but might include:

Debriefing your birth experience - this can be beneficial to have someone hold space for you without judgment whilst you recount your baby entering the world

Help and support - with feeding/bath time/nappy changes

Caring for baby whilst you have a well earned nap/take a shower/bath/spend time with other children 

Light housework, preparing simple meals and drinks and snacks 

Signposting to reliable information sources, your local baby groups and support groups

Booking and payment

This package can be booked as soon as you are ready, ideally in pregnancy so that you can guarantee my availability in the days and weeks after your baby has been born.

I will prepare a Letter of Agreement and request 50% as a non-refundable deposit. Once the agreement has been signed and deposit paid, this will secure your requested support. The final 50% of payment is due before the first appointment.

Each visit normally lasts 3 hours (3 hours minimum) and will be between 9:30am - 2.30pm.

Ad hoc support is £20 per hour and can be booked on a week to week basis for flexibility.

The postnatal planning session will take place in your home and can be booked for a time convient to you.

If you feel this type of support is what you need to help you and your family get off to the best possible start, please contact me so we can tailor a package that will suit you.
