Supporting Your New Adventure
As a Postnatal Doula, I’ll provide you with any support necessary so that you and your baby can concentrate on bonding, feeding, and rest. My aim is to increase your enjoyment and confidence in your new role as a mother, without taking over.
Postnatal work is very individual and so my role will be tailored to your needs. There are many different ways I can support you. Some examples of the things I do include cooking, light housework, shopping, washing and/or tidying. I can also walk the dog, play with older siblings, or watch the baby so that you can sleep. For some people, I may just be a source of encouragement, support and a friendly face when you need someone to talk to. I can help you to debrief your birth experience and assist with feeding or anything you are unsure about.
I will never make any decisions for you, or try to influence your views on any of your options. Instead, I will make suggestions in line with my experience, and encourage and support you in whatever you decide is best for you and your baby.
I offer my Postnatal Doula service within a 30-minute drive from Birmingham city centre, mostly in the evenings and on weekends. If these times are not suitable for you, I am happy to discuss tailoring how we work together to meet your specific needs.
