Pregnancy + birth
You can sign me up as soon as you get that positive or wait until you hit 12 weeks. We will have between 2 and 6 sessions depending which package you choose. We will tailor each meet up to be what you need, whether it’s birth education, mapping out your birth preferences or having a cup of tea and debriefing current emotions. I am then available on call for you from 38 weeks and when you need me, I'll be there supporting you in your chosen location. I’ll hold your hand, refill your water bottle and take pictures, I am there for you.Sign me up!
I will ensure your fridge and pantry are stocked, make sure you’re resting and eating, hold your baby whilst you’re showering and give the floor a quick vacuum. We can run through feeding positions, how to bathe your baby, and what poo colour is normal. We can debrief your birth and help ease your concerns. I’m here for you.Put the kettle on!
