Postnatal Doula support
Your baby’s here! What wonderful and beautiful news! This is an exciting moment in your life, but it can also be a trying time as you and your baby will be learning your new rhythms and shared world, all whilst you recover and integrate your birth.
As such, I’ll be there to provide help with breastfeeding, and also in keeping you nourished by providing you home-cooked meals. I'm also happy to look after older siblings, to help with some light housework, and to look after your baby as you try to catch some sleep or simply have a shower.
I'll share with you relevant information and resources that might be relevant to you, empowering you in your first steps as a parent, while ensuring your new family is comfortable and cared for.
I will also sit and offer you the space and a listening ear as you process your birth story, and to answer any questions or doubts.
See below for different ways in which I can support you in the postpartum period.
Postnatal doula support
Regardless of whether or not I’m your birth doula, I’m always happy to support you and your baby in those first few weeks (or months).
Postnatal support may include (but it’s not limited to):
- Debriefing your birth story
- Support with feeding
- Cooking and baking for you and your family
- Watching over your baby while you get some sleep
- Looking after siblings
- Pointing you in the direction of useful information
Each postnatal visit is charged at a rate of £15 per hour, with the minimum duration per visit being 2 hours.
Birth Debrief Only
After your birth you may feel like you want to chat it through with somebody who will listen and understand. It's important to create space to process and digest such a momentous experience in your life, and I'm here to hold that space for you.
I will listen as you piece together and unfold your birth story, supporting you in processing any feelings and emotions that may arise, and without judgement.
This can be for you the mother/birthing parent only, for your birth partner only, and/or for the couple together.
These sessions can be in person or online.
£25 for 2h
