Did you know that the World Health Organization (WHO) states that 'The postnatal period is a critical phase in the lives of mothers and newborn babies. Yet, this is the most neglected period for the provision of quality care.'
We are passionate about providing holistic, modern midwifery services to the women of Adelaide! Quality postnatal support is a necessity, not a luxury. This is such an important time in your life, and you deserve to have someone supporting you every step of the way.
Breastfeeding is natural, but it isn't always easy!
We have a 6 week program that will support your transition into motherhood and prepare you successfully breastfeed your baby. You will receive professional support and guidance every step of the way.
As Endorsed Midwives we are trained to provide care to both you and your baby - our care has a holistic focus, however we are trained to provide prescriptions for medications and order blood tests if required. We 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 their private midwife is only at the end of the phone if any questions arise between appointments is very reassuring.
You will receive continuity from one of our incredible midwives during this time. I have hand picked my team in order to provide you with the best support possible. Georgina and Nerissa are experienced midwives and all round lovely humans - we look forward to working with you on your journey!
The Postnatal Package includes:
- 1 x 90 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.
- 5 x 60-90 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 for any breastfeeding, settling or sleep questions 8am-6pm during the 6 week postnatal period - this comes in super handy and is great for between appointments!
- PLUS you will receive access to my Online Positive Breastfeeding + Postpartum Course to assist in your preparation for breastfeeding and parenthood (valued at $97)
You don't have to feel overwhelmed, uncertain and lost! Those first few weeks with your baby are likely to be some of the most challenging, but also the most rewarding of your life. Let’s work through this together!
You are the perfect client for us if:
You are overwhelmed when you think about the responsibility of your new role as a mama.
You want to avoid lots of conflicting advice from different health providers, and to avoid having to retell your story each time you meet a new midwife/nurse.
You're freaking out about taking your baby home and don't know what to do!
You want someone there every step of the way with you who will provide judgement free, modern and solutions-focussed advice and support.
Hannah and Georgie
