The first weeks after the birth are crucial for the mum to recover from giving birth and bond with her new baby.
Often these wonderful first weeks can be a challenging time. As a postnatal doula, I’ll come in and focus on your needs as a new mother. I’ll be able to offer you a helping pair of hands, emotional support and non-judgemental suggestion, giving you the time to enjoy those precious first few weeks - whether that means you spending time with baby while I get on with all the ‘stuff’ that builds up in house, or taking baby while you get some precious ‘me time’.
I have supported first time mums, mums with more than 3 children, parent with newborn twins.
I am happy to do whatever is needed when I visit which often includes
- baby care,
- support and signposting with newborn care including feeding,
-listening and supporting you as you make the transition to motherhood,
- light cooking for you or family,
- take you to appointments like baby health clinic, breast feeding
- sibling care,
- school run and homework support,
- pet care,
- food shopping
My fee for postnatal support: £14 per hour, min of 2 hours per visit, 50p/mile over 5 miles
