Preparing for
Postnatal

6M3A1453.jpg
I started off my doula'ing career helping mums and families in the home once baby had arrived. We worked through situations and issues as they arose. Working reactively whilst also day to day of baby, mum and the rest of the family.  

Having worked with countless families I began to realise where families were having challenges, when they thrived, when they didn't know to expect a certain thing, or had a huge mental load. 

Having been fortunate enough to be in the homes of these families, I can say with certainty there are things you can do to
Prepare for Postnatal life. 

"So focussed on the birth I didn't realise what was in store for me postnatally"

"Why don't they do more emotional and mental health work in Antenatal classes"

" I want to get as ready as I can now I'll have two kids"


Getting your ducks in a row - practically and emotionally - will be a
game-changer. 

 

What did Becca say about
her session...

"April made us think about things we hadn't really considered & think about things in more depth. Thinking about how we want our experience to be rather than thinking about how it 'should' be.

 

Realising how things will work for us & our lifestyle. Knowing that everyone has different ideas about how to handle such a life-changing event & that it's ok to do things exactly how we want rather than how someone else thinks we should".
