Postnatal Doula

Helping you care for your cub from birth

 About Postnatal Doula Services

 

Bringing your baby home for the first time is a wonderful and life-changing experience but it can often feel a daunting or overwhelming.

I can be there to give you help after the birth and to ensure you are supported both practically and emotionally, allowing you to adjust at your own pace to life with a new-born.

A postnatal doula supports families in the early days (and sometimes beyond!) when they are finding their feet with their new family member.

It may be your first baby, or perhaps you have older children at home. A postnatal doula helps slot things together whilst everyone recovers.

Postnatal doulas provide emotional as well as practical support. We hold the space as you explore your new roles, and provide a helping hand where required.

After getting in contact with me I offer a free 1-hour consultation in your home or over the phone/video call so we can talk about the kind of help you think you need or will need when baby arrives. This gives us time for you to ask questions and see that we get on, and you feel comfortable with me. This is usually done antenatally, but if you find me once you have had the baby then it can often be a bit easier to pin point what you need help with!

I operate within a maximum 20 mile radius of Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.

My postnatal doula services vary depending on the kind of support you require but below are just a few examples of how I can help you care for your cub in the early days.

I can accompany you on baby’s first outings, i.e. to the clinic, the shops or even for a coffee and a chat.

I can offer a friendly non-judgmental ear supporting you emotionally and practically.

I can do light tidying e.g. putting a wash on, tackling the washing up in the sink.
