My Postnatal Doula Services

Becoming a parent, and that postpartum journey is a HUGELY transformative time, but a journey that we're not always prepared for.

You have probably spent hours looking through all reviews about the best baby travel systems, which pushchair is best, which baby pram is the most comfortable.....but how many hours have you spent planning your first few weeks as a new mum?  Don't worry, I'm not judging's totally normal!

Parents focus and plan for their baby's birth, they educate themselves with childbirth classes, they prepare their home, buy all the necessary baby items, but planning for the postpartum period is often forgotten.

Those first few weeks of being a new parent can be quite lonely, it can all feel overwhelming, it can feel like a smack in the face!   You don't even have time or energy to take a shower (when did I last wash my hair is a common question new mums ask themselves!).  You don't have time to make meals or feed the dog. 


But do you know, when you plan for your journey into motherhood, you really let go and enjoy this time!  You can have a soft and gentle landing, feeling nurtured, supported and listened to.f


The way you enter into motherhood, will really have an effect on your whole family unit and home, with the effects lasting a lifetime.  Let that journey be full of love, support and gentle care, so that you can heal, recover and then grow into your role as a mother.  It really is the biggest, most tiring, but most AWESOME role out there!







How I can help you:

My postpartum support is really unique for every new mum.  We take some time during your pregnancy, to plan your postpartum.  I'll guide you and support you as you dig deep into what YOUR needs are and what brings you peace and joy and love.  We'll look into your support network, what practical help and emotional support you might need.  Basically, what makes you happy, what food you just love to gobble up, and which family or friends you REALLY don't want popping over for a visit.

Then after you give birth, I'll visit you in your home where I'll be your massage hands, your listening ear holding space for you, I'll hold your baby while you shower (yes, finally!  clean hair!) or while you take a much needed nap.  Every mum, baby and family are different, so my support is very individual and totally tailored for you.  This is why making a plan during your pregnancy, really means I'll support in the exact way YOU and your BABY need to thrive.

What the prenatal visits might include (you decide!):

You might choose to have 1 or 2 prenatal sessions, and they might include:

-  Making a plan for your postpartum

-  Digging deep to find out what brings you peace & joy, how can we boost your oxytocin levels to create a warm, love-filled bubble

-  Managing visitors in the early days/weeks (do you REALLY want your boss's boss visiting you on day 2?)

-  Looking at building your village, your tribe, where are all those new mums at?

-  Planning super tasty and nourishing meals ahead of time, maybe a meal train

-  Helping you to get your home organised for welcoming your baby

-  Being your listening ear for you to talk about any concerns you might have

What the postpartum visits might include (you choose!):

You can choose how many visits you would like (don't worry, you can add more if you need!).  Every journey into motherhood is different, so we make sure the support you receive is tailored to what you and your family need.  It might be some practical support, or more emotional support, or a mix of both.  Some of the ways I can support you are:

-  Holding space for you, listening compassionately and offering you emotional support without judgement or bias

-  Help you to find your own way, instead of offering you advice, I'll support you in making your own decisions

-  Helping you find ways to shut out the noise and reducing that overwhelmed feeling

-  Massage

-  Belly binding

-  Holding and caring for your your baby while you take a shower or while you sleep

-  Helping you with baby care (I'm great at bathing babies and changing poo-y diapers!)

-  Preparing light tasty meals

-  Helping with some light household chores (yep, I'll happily do your laundry and change your beds)

-  Grocery shopping/running errands

-  Providing you with warm tea so you can get comfy and cosy in your bed or on the sofa in front of Netflix
