Postnatal care is hit & miss at the best of times. Add a global pandemic and far-reaching restrictions to the mix, and you have women who are feeling even more overwhelmed, isolated and confused.

Whether you reach out for support for emotional back-up or more hands-on practical help with the baby, around the home and things you may need help with; the aim of the game for the work I do is for you not to need me anymore because you are feeling differently and getting into your flow. Confidence has rocketed. Self-belief blossomed. Fog has lifted and you feel you have turned your corner moving onto the next phase.

Sometimes I meet women when they are expecting; this is ideal as we can begin to build the relationship, find out about your family dynamic, work on planning & prep for baby’s arrival and make sure the support is in the right area for you.

There are also families I met when baby is home and they realise they would like help. Again this is focussed on mum; one of the USP’s for doulas. We always keep in regular chats about how the support can best help you and how it changes with you; how you feel on week 3 is different to week 12.

Given the current times we are in, and how we are much more used to being online to get products and services we need, I am focussing on virtual support. And there is LOADS we can cover in these sessions.

One of the areas I talk about often is the Fourth Trimester. Something I feel we do not talk about nearly enough. If we understood this quarter it would make for a smoother, more positive ride for mum and baby.

And to help with that smoother ride, here are 5 must-have products to make your life easier and a better transition for your baby:

If you would like to talk more about the Fourth Trimester, baby norms, sleep, feeding, specific areas of help & emotional back up then Virtual Postnatal Support Sessions could be for you. To read more info on the package, you can use this link:
