Should you want me to provide further postnatal visits to provide support and help with staying on top of things (other family members may be feeling a bit left out and in need of attention) I can arrange to do this for you. Mothering skills take time and practice but a relaxed, stress- free atmosphere helps these to develop.
I may offer suggestions and help around infant feeding, handling and bathing. I will give you space to discuss any concerns and issues that may be worrying you in complete confidence, and I can offer information as well as companionship.
If you need to rest or go out, or need help with preparing a meal or caring for your other children, I can help. The most important thing is to bond with your baby, but that’s not easy to do when you are overtired or perhaps there is more than one baby to bond with!
You can call or email me for advice whenever you need to, before and after birth; I will always be happy to encourage and offer support and suggestions.
