CARE WHEN IT'S CRUCIAL

I'M OPEN!!!!

I am so thankful to be continuing to serve new families. Feel free to get in touch via text message on 07403198152 or use the booking form in the menu above to book a free, no obligation 30 minute consultation. 

 

You can't put a value on continuity of support, and with my packages, I will give you a daily thorough assessment, visits using PPE, and sign post to  or other professionals if necessary.

There is nothing worse than exhausted and stressed out new parents who do not have practical help or emotional support. After the arrival of a baby, you need to have a well deserved rest, the chance to recover, and to bond with the new addition. With my support, you will be able to look back on this time as being one of the most precious of your whole life. I'm providing support digitally, as well as with safe home visits.

Usually time is of the essence. Don't hesitate to call me on 07403198152

Breastfeeding Support Care Packages

Platinum

Get off to the best possible start with this package which covers the first 12 crucial weeks - which means both mother and baby will go on to have a lovely experience with breastfeeding for the following weeks, months and sometimes even years to come!

“Erin has been an amazing help and support. I am extremely grateful as thanks to her knowledge and understanding of babies she identified the problem of my baby’s tongue tie which helped a lot. If it weren’t for her, baby would have continued to struggle to feed. Her positive, friendly and bubbly personality helped so much.” ADM

“I was struggling with my health and one twin in the hospital and one at home. Erin gave me the space/time to recover, and I was able to visit twin in the hospital without having to worry about George at home. She did some cleaning, cooking and washing which meant I, my mum and my husband didn’t need to worry about those chores. Erin was cheerful and empathetic. Her desire to please shines through. She clearly loves babies, and took lovely care of him and was very attentive.” KJ

"Our family is still sane (well, almost...) thanks to Erin swooping in like Wonder Woman during the postnatal weeks. And I have to admit we couldn’t bear to let her leave us until the ‘newborn’ was well over a year old!! Seriously, she is not a luxury but a necessity. Every woman should have a postnatal doula, especially if you don’t have family support." LC

Postnatal Doula Support 

Postnatal Doula sessions provide ‘wrap-around’ care to new parents. There are practical matters such as general tidy-ups and nourishing meals, which can make life with a newborn so much easier! A typical session lasts approximately three hours and the '40 day package' below can be extended if necessary. 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. 

Each session is different because new parents  have needs that change drastically from day to day. For example of what a session might include - it's an extra pair of hands around the house.

  • meals (as mentioned above)

  • entertaining a toddler or older child 

  • helping with a school run 

  • changing nappies 

  • bathing baby

  • winding baby (I have an excellent method!)

  • holding baby while mum has a rest or a shower

  • helping with pets 

  • laundry

  • grocery shopping

  • driving to an appointment if necessary 

 

It's also a listening ear and usually reassuring parents about normal newborn behaviour. This can save an enormous amount of anxious worry. My aim to to have parents look back at this period of time as being one of the best of their entire lives!
