Antenatal education - SINGLE TOPIC SESSIONS
Limited size, friendly, informal sessions offering up-to-date, appropriate information on a range of subjects. These groups are focused on one topic per session (e.g., preparing for labour and birth, preparing for infant feeding) and are charged per individual session. Available to both individuals or couples.
Already parents? A while since you had your last baby? All births and babies are unique so these sessions are valuable for both new parents to be as well as those who have been there before - the updated information, support or reassurance may be all you need to feel ready.
BESPOKE BREASTFEEDING preparation session
A one to one session held in your own home to help prepare you for feeding your new baby. Breastfeeding is challenging and tiring but if you understand what to expect, you can take the harder days in your stride and have the confidence to keep going. Covering all aspects of breastfeeding your baby from techniques, baby's feeding behaviours, understanding what's normal and what's not to breast care.
POST BIRTH SUPPORT HOME SERVICE
Possibly the most important and often overlooked is the post birth period. The first few weeks after the birth of your baby is when you can be at your most vulnerable. We offer a home visit service, offering you support and information on infant feeding, emotional issues, confidence building or just a general 'you're doing ok' chat. AND its not just for mums, partners can also face some bumps in the road and need a helping hand too.
We can visit at home on an ad hoc basis or at pre-arranged times, its up to you. Just get in touch.
post-natal support social group (COMING SOON)
Open to all, this group is a place to get together with your baby and catch up with new friends, chat and have a cuppa in a relaxed environment. With a midwife on hand to offer support and to signpost you to the right people if an extra hand is needed.
If you prefer the privacy of your own home to groups or prefer days to evenings, you might want to know about our bespoke service. Charged by the hour, we can come to you and deliver, from a range of subjects chosen from our 'menu', as much or little as you like. You can have this in one session or you can opt for more - entirely up to you. Available to individuals, couples or small groups.
