Practical & emotional care and support, providing reassurance for the early days and
supporting the whole family on their journey into parenthood.
As your postnatal doula I will ensure you and your new baby are given all the time and space you need to get to know each other whilst you find your feet as a new family, all in the safety of your own home. I will be there to ease your concerns, support you through those early challenges, hear your joys and be your shoulder to cry on. This is your baby, your family and I am not there to tell you how you should care for your baby or make judgements, but to walk alongside you as you journey through those precious first few days and weeks in the way that feels right for you.
I can offer support with feeding, however you choose to feed your baby. Whether breastfeeding or bottle feeding, I will be there to ensure you feel totally supported in the choices you make. I will provide reassurance, ensure you are comfortable, have everything you need and feel totally cared for so that you can focus on you and your new baby.
Perhaps over the days or weeks when you feel ready, I can support you as you venture out into the world.
You might like to take a short journey with the pram or try out going for a walk with your baby in a sling. Perhaps you have an appointment you need to attend with your baby and would like some support or maybe to make that first step to join a local parent and baby group..... all at your own pace and with your doula by your side.
It is so important that you feel a connection with the doula you choose to nurture and support you. There is a doula out there for everyone!
Before you decide if I'm the doula for you, we can arrange a no obligation face to face meet or online video chat so that you can be sure you feel comfortable and I can answer any further questions you might have.
