Emotional, practical, informational support to empower you in the postnatal period.
I can offer specialist and intensive breast-feeding support tailored to your needs. If breastfeeding feels a bit awkward at first, don't worry. Breastfeeding is a skill that you and your baby learn together, and it can take time to get used to. I can help you with positioning and attachment
I can guide you through what sleep patterns are normal and help with strategies to support better sleep for you and your baby. Understanding normal sleep rhythms and factors which affect sleep. Advice from birth to 5 years on night terrors, bedtime routines, any concerns that you may have
Introducing you baby to solid food can be a difficult and confusing time. I can advise you on all aspects of weaning, understanding when and how to transition to eating family food. Dietary advice, meal planning, portion control, supporting you with concerns around family meal times.
The most important part of my work is to really listen to you fears, concerns, and preferences and address them. Sometimes just talking things through can be like a weight lifting and you can think more clearly about what it is that you want. We’ve been doing this for thousands of years, but it can still feel like a monumental, scary, and an impossible thing. I want to build your confidence and let you know that you can do this.
