Postnatal & Night Support 

My Postnatal Doula Service

I am incredibly passionate in ensuring mothers have the very best support postnatally, and are able to relax and enjoy their new role without external stresses, or interruptions. I truly believe that too often new mothers are expected to be dressed, on school runs, cooking dinners, socialising and so on, after the birth of their new baby or babies. When in reality being in your pyjamas with your hair in a "Mum bun" at 3 o'clock in the afternoon is perfectly ok! The first 6 weeks after giving birth is a very important time and shouldn't ever be brushed aside or underemphasised.

As your Postnatal Doula I will be willing and ready to support you in anyway you may need me whether it be

*Running errands

 

*Accompany you to postnatal appointments.

*Support while feeding in public if needed.

*Ensuring your home is kept clean and tidy.

*Making endless cups of tea or coffee.

*Preparing nutritious breakfast, lunch or tea for you and your family.

*Looking after your baby / babies so you're able to have a shower, eat or have a well needed nap!

*Signposting you to groups and classes that may be of interest, while also being available to attend if desired. 

*Caring for siblings to allow you time to get to know your new baby, or alternatively caring for your baby/babies giving you the opportunity to spend some quality time with your other children.

*Practical baby care -helping you learn how to change a nappy/ dress your baby /bath your baby / supporting you with feeding and referral to expert help if needed / sharing baby calming techniques / knowing what is normal or when to seek help if needed.

Ultimately I will be there to help in any way you and your family need me, making sure I'm supporting you all the very best I can. I will stay for as long or as little time as you desire, you'll  likely become confident in your new role and will no longer need my support, this is where I shall go leaving you and your family to continue your journey together.

To quote  Nanny McPhee 

     "When you need me,

but do not want me,

   then I must stay.

When you want me,

    but do not need me,

     then I have to go."
