Postnatal and Newborn Support
Practical and emotional support during the postpartum period
I offer bespoke postnatal support to ensure you and your baby get off to the best possible start. Today's society and expectations of parenthood and newborn behaviour could not be further from the reality. I value the importance of providing holistic support - that suits you and your family's needs. Ideal for those who don't have family support close by or wishing some extra support.
If birthing in hospital, I can be available to meet you at home on the day of your discharge and help you settle in at home. If booking during pregnancy, 1 antenatal session is included to make plans for your postnatal support. So stay in your pyjamas, let me make you a cuppa and tell me what your physical and emotional needs are for this time.
Although I am a midwife, please note that postnatal home support does not include clinical midwifery care or medical advice. Postnatal and Newborn support includes practical and emotional support during the postnatal period and also...
- Reflecting on your birth experience
- Baby care whilst you catch up on some Zzz
- Feeding support
- Building your confidence as a new parent
- Baby Massage
- Light housework and meal preparation
Where do I cover?
I can provide ongoing support through your postpartum journey as individual appointments or remote sessions. I'm based in Glasgow and cover most of central Scotland. However, my remote support options allow me to provide support worldwide as long as you have a phone or internet connection. I provide support from birth until 3 months postpartum.
