SERVICES

Free Consultation 

We can meet face to face to discuss what you and your family feel you may need and to get a sense of each other. This can take place in your home, cafe or wherever suits you best.

What I Offer

- Antenatal visit. During this optional session we can discuss feeding options, baby equipment, sleep and any concerns or doubts you may have before the baby arrives. Also, it's a space for us to get to know each other better and for me to understand of the dynamic of your household.

 

-Emotional support. Debriefing the birth, talking and listening are some of the most essential things some women discover they need after having a child.

 

-Support with breastfeeding, bottle feeding, mixed feeding. I have experience with feeding babies with reflux, paced bottle feeding and basic breastfeeding knowledge.

 

-Light cleaning and cooking. I am happy to put a load of washing on, hoover your living room and do general tidying. I am a good cook and enjoy it enormously, so am more than happy to prepare as little or much food as you would like.

 

-Assistance with older siblings.

 

-Night time and weekend care.

 

-Caring for baby while you rest or have some time to yourself.

 

-Provide up to date information about anything related to the postnatal period. This can relate to safe sleeping, feeding, parenting styles, current NICE guidelines.

 

-Signposting to local services. This can include lactation consultants, yoga teachers, osteopaths, baby groups, perinatal mental health services, breastfeeding cafes, massages and so on.
