Postnatal Doula Services
My packages are tailored dependant on the needs of each individual family. If we get to meet before the birth than we will have an hour or so together to discuss what your ideas are around how your life will look after having a newborn baby, what type of care you think will suit you and if you have any food allergies or preferences
Once baby is born, I will come for 3 hour blocks of time, generally two to three times a week but again this can be tailored to you and the babies needs.
The first visit will focus on you debriefing the pregnancy and birth, this is of course unless baby has other plans! It’s a nice time for you to reflect on how everything went and where you are sitting with your emotions at such an emotional and hormonal time. Outside of this, we take each day as it comes, this could look like some rest for you whilst I look after baby and cook a meal or two for you or it could be some guidance on babies sleep and feeds.
Each day when I leave I hope that you feel a little more relaxed and rested, with a fridge full of nourishing food to keep you going through the rest of the day and night. My main goal is to let you get the rest required to raise a newborn and to help you to trust your own instincts as a mother and to listen to your gut. No one will know you baby as well as you will, sometimes it just takes time and a supporting hand.
Baby Shower Gift
Instead of buying more bibs and gloves for baby, how about a gift that will never be forgotten? Even just a week or twos support will give the new parents the space and time to adjust to their new roles as parents for the first time or adjusting to life we with a baby and sibling(s)
In this modern world we rarely live near our family anymore, this is hard for the entire family when a baby is born, so being able to send in some help during the birth of a grandchild is a thoughtful way to support from afar. As mentioned above, my visits are in 3 hourly blocks, below are the blocks you can purchase. The blocks have to be used within 6 months of the baby’s birth
