“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. ~ Osho
I am passionate about providing holistic midwifery support to women and families during this time, and would absolutely love to support you on your journey! Women deserve to be supported and nurtured during this time.
Breastfeeding is natural, but it isn't always easy!
You know that breastfeeding your baby is one of the best things you can do for their health. If you want to breastfeed your baby past the crucial six week milestone, you need to educate yourself now before they are even born, and secure your own professional breastfeeding ally so that you are able to handle any challenges that come your way.
I have a 6 week program that will support your transition into motherhood and prepare you successfully breastfeed your baby. You will receive my professional support and guidance every step of the way.
As an Endorsed Midwife I am trained to provide care to both you and your baby - my care has a holistic focus, however I am trained to provide prescriptions for medications and order blood tests if required. I work in collaboration with your GP and/or midwife/obstetrician (if applicable) and ensure that they are kept in the loop!
Feedback from previous clients is that they have loved having one person providing consistent advice and support during this time, and knowing that I am only at the end of the phone if any questions arise between appointments is very reassuring.
The Postnatal Package includes:
- 1 x 60 min antenatal education and planning session to get you off on the right foot where we discuss everything you can do now to prepare for a successful breastfeeding and postnatal recovery. Your questions will be answered and we will create a plan for your postpartum care.
- 3 -8 x 60 min in home postnatal appointments (beginning in the first few days after your baby is born and continuing throughout the first 6 weeks) where we will work together to ensure you are confident with feeding your baby, settling, sleep, physical and emotional recovery and also how your partner is feeling as this is a huge transition for them too!
- Unlimited phone and text support 8am-6pm during the 6 week postnatal period - this comes in super handy and is great for between appointments!
- PLUS you will receive an invitation to join my live online 2hr Positive Breastfeeding + Postpartum Course OR access to the recording (whichever you prefer) to assist in your preparation for breastfeeding and parenthood.
Each appointment is charged individually so you get to decide how many appointments you need (most clients find around six appointments is perfect!).
Due to current COVID 19 concerns some of your appointments will be able to be via telehealth (over Zoom video or phone) and these appointments will be bulk billed.
