Infant Feeding Specialist/Breastfeeding Support
I’m a Postnatal Doula and Infant Feeding Specialist. Since motherhood is such a huge adjustment, I aim to help you ease into it, whether or not this is your first child. Although I’ve helped thousands of new mothers reach their personal breastfeeding goals, I also help with safe bottle feeding. Supporting different parenting styles is important in enabling and empowering parents to enjoy this very fleeting and precious time in your lives.
Postnatal Doula sessions provide ‘wrap-around’ care to new parents. There are practical matters such as general tidy-ups and simple meals, which can make life with a newborn so much easier! A typical session lasts three to four hours and can be as frequent and as on-going as your family needs. There would be ample time for mum and baby to bond, for you to get plenty of rest and to recover from the birth, and to enjoy healthy home-made meals. Listening and empathy is part of the emotional support side, and can help prevent postnatal depression.
In addition to doula sessions, I also on offer:
