Postnatal Support

Very often families don’t realise they need support until baby arrives, be prepared and look up what’s available before baby arrives.

All my services are available online or face to face.

👶 Postnatal Doula service where I support families in their own home in those early weeks as parents (face to face only)

👶Postnatal expectation workshops for Birth partners

👶Baby Massage – 4 week courses online or face to face

👶Starting Solids Workshops – 2hr workshop 

👶Beyond Birth New parent mental wellbeing sessions

Don't forget the dads / birth partners

So often Dads or Birth partners are left out of the whole maternity / parenting system.  I disagree with this, you are very much part of your family, and your role is so important before and after birth.

All available online or face to face, except dads stay and play sessions.

F.A.Q.

Commonly asked questions

Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancy. The ideal time to attend a birth preparation course is generally in the 3rd trimester.  Many of my previous clients have been between 30 – 35 weeks gestation, so they are prepared and ready as their baby will most likely arrive anytime from 37-42 weeks gestation.

Absolutely. I tailor all my courses to my clients needs, so whether you are going to be on your own, have a friend as birth partner, or are a same sex couple, I am there to support you all.

Absolutely not.  I totally understand that during the current climate and the vulnerability of pregnant and new families, many are not comfortable attending a face to face course.  This is one reason why I’ve developed the online courses.  I’ve run over 35 online courses since 2020, the content is exactly the same, but the way of facilitating is slightly different.

As a postnatal doula, I usually have a chat with the family before the birth to get to know them and for us all to discover if I’m the right person for them.  The family will then get in touch after the birth for support and we take it from there.  

If you haven’t been in touch, and decide after your baby is born that you need some additional support, get in touch with me and we can have a chat.

Firstly, I want to clarify that all support I give is inclusive and non-biased, throughout.  Non-pregnant female partners are generally more comfortable attending events, activities and groups that are predominantly female.  

When I completed my dissertation for my BA Hons in Childhood Practice, I specialised in support for Dads. I noted that male partners and Dads have very different needs to women and female partners, which is what I have addressed in my courses, workshops and dads only events.  

 

 

Please keep talking to your partner or any supporters you have about your feelings.  They will help to keep you grounded and keep an eye on you.

Why not come along to my Beyond Birth New Parent mental wellbeing sessions where you will learn skills and strategies to give you some breathing space and time for you.

Please get in touch, my services are flexible and I’d like to be able to support you with your needs too.
