Infant Feeding Specialist/Breastfeeding Support
Hi, I’m Erin and I STILL love my job! Since lock down, sadly I’ve had to suspend my face to face support with families.
However, my Antenatal Breastfeeding Course had kicked off to a great start, as well as offering Breastfeeding Support via zoom/facetime for mothers who might be struggling. You can have a look at the course here-
If you are feeling overwhelmed, or breastfeeding isn’t going to plan I can still help. Please do not hesitate to get in touch. I offer a free phone consultation, and very reasonably priced face calls and courses. I really do care and want every mother to look back at this time as being a very precious one.
I’m a Postnatal Doula and Infant Feeding Specialist. Motherhood is a huge adjustment, and I aim to help you ease into it, whether or not this is your first. Although I’ve helped thousands of new mothers reach their personal breastfeeding goals, I understand if your family decides that alternative feeding works best for you. 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:
Breastfeeding Support Care Packages- please see my website www.mummyminder.com for details and prices
My services also make a perfect gift for a new mum, and I have been ‘gifted’ several times.
