The first few weeks can be the most challenging. Mums can start to feel very anxious and overwhelmed. This may be due to constant advice from friends or family or you might be reading every book you’ve been recommended or strolling the internet. 

It can take a little bit of time to adjust becoming a new mum. The first 2 weeks especially can be daunting, exhausting and also amazing. These first weeks are your bonding weeks. Getting to know your baby. 

This is when one on one  support to help you enjoy your baby and feel confident is important. 

Once your baby gets used to the outside world, challenges may occur. They become more curious and are very quick to develop patterns that may not be sustainable for the both of you and your family. 

Giving you gentle and holistic advice with hands on approach, working along side you both at home and online will help you trust your instincts and enjoy your baby wiht feeling anxious, second guessing yourself and I can guarantee no sleep deprivation. 

So how does this work and what is involved?

  • We start to chat before you have your baby around 36 weeks or we can dive straight into it if your little one has already arrived. 

-if you are breastfeeding, I can offer one on one guidance with

  • Positioning
  • Latching
  • Expressing
  • Lactation support
  • Nutrition Advice
  • Anxiety around feeding
  • Feeding patterns

-if you are bottle feeding

  • Recommendations on formula
  • Bottle feeding techniques
  • Amount of feeds your baby needs
  • Creating good feeding patterns
  • Help with mixed feeding

Supporting and encouraging you to gain confidence with

  • Nappy changing
  • Bathing
  • Swaddling
  • Settling
  • Recognising your baby’s sleep needs.

Getting help early will also minimise challenges that are very common in the first weeks

Such as

  • Reflux
  • Colic
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Tongue tie
  • Lactation issues

The support I provide doesn’t have to be limited to those early weeks. I provide ongoing support as your baby grows, including:

  • support to transition baby from bassinet to cot
  • feeding support when starting solids
  • dealing with sleep regressions and the anxiety they can cause
  • teething
  • all of the other challenges having an infant can bring

Because Mum is important too, I take a special interest in your wellbeing. With experience as a personal fitness instructor, training as a relaxation massage therapist, a professional and personal interest in women’s health, and a passion for natural and holistic wellbeing, I am well placed to provide the personal support and balance a new mum deserves.

All one-to-one support is tailored to the individual needs of mum, baby, and the family unit.
