During postnatal sessions I will come to your house and we will have a birth debrief, and work together and find out what you need from me based on your individual needs. These include -
Helping to build your confidence looking after your baby
Some household chores like cooking* for you and your family and light cleaning such as doing the washing up
I can make batch meals to stock your freezer*
Light childcare for older siblings or holding the newborn so you can have some quality time with your other child/children
I can offer support with breast/chest and bottle feeding
Signposting what services and support is available in your area
I can also just be a non judgemental listening ear over a cuppa, you can share any struggles you're having as a new parent or talk about any feelings you have around your birth or new parenthood.
I can look after the baby while you have some time for yourself, to have a nap or a shower.
I can accompany you on your first trip outside with baby if your feeling overwhelmed, or just prefer the company.
I can come along to postnatal appointments with you if you feel you need the support
