Welcome to our monthly complete support package for the Newborn Period! We can't wait to help you. We provide the following:
Most importantly, a chance to be listened to, heard and offered
confidence boosting expert guidance on newborn issues like:
crying (you or the baby!)
worries about establising routine
Your mental health (overwhelm, difficult thoughts, challenging birth
Supporting your physical postnatal recovery (tummy gap check, pelvic
floor strengthening and posture checks)
In person weekly meeting with 3 specialists in a relaxed setting (sofas, hot drinks and biscuits). This session is 2.5h long to enable you to come when you can and leave when you must - we know how hard it is to get out of the house with a newborn! We will respond to the women in front of us and may use group discussion, one on one chats, little demonstrations (soothing techniques, paced feeding, baby reflexology points etc), short talks (Mum resilience, Handling difficult thoughts postnatally and so on) or whatever that particular group of women need. NB We cannot offer Medical, Midwifery or Health Visiting advice
Babies are expected and welcome. It may be possible for a support person to come with you (depending on space), please ask.
Private WhatsApp group with regular encouragement and short teaching videos posted from time to time. Chat to other Mums to support each other in between meetings. Liz will be on hand to answer questions within 24 hours.
Opportunities to book extra 1-to-1 services with Kathyrn, Liz and/or Sarah (further cost).
