In-Home Postpartum Care & Support
Nurturing Support All Mothers Deserve
Becoming a mother is one of the biggest life transitions you will experience. During pregnancy, there is so much support and excitement leading up to the birth, but once the baby is born and home many new mothers experience isolation, sleep deprivation and overwhelm.
With the focus mostly being on the baby and how they are growing, feeding and developing not much thought or time is put into the mother who is learning this brand new role.
I believe that it takes a village to raise a mother – and she will blossom with gentle reassurance, nurturing and support. Helping her to be the best mother she can be.
Becoming the Best Mum You Can Be
We will meet during your pregnancy to discuss concerns & discover family challenges. I will work with you to create a long-term self-care plan, set intentions, set up a meal registry for friends and relatives, and create systems and routines to assist household flow.
Once your baby has arrived I will provide breastfeeding support in your home with referrals to breastfeeding counsellors and lactation consultants if required. I provide comforting touch massage for the mother to increase oxytocin and help you relax and show you how to gently massage your baby. Supporting you with self-care, community mapping, infant care, parenting information, and light – housework allowing you time to enjoy and bond with your newborn baby.
My mission is to provide you with the nurturing care and support that you deserve during this special time of your life while helping you build up your confidence, your community and leaving you with all the tools to continue Motherhood with a strong foundation.
I will support you through your breastfeeding journey, to guide you and give you
encouragement. Research shows that mothers are more likely to meet their
breastfeeding goals when they are supported.
As a breastfeeding advocate (and after breastfeeding both of my daughters) I am apart
of a large Australian Breastfeeding Network, and where required I will connect you
with local lactation consultants and breastfeeding support groups (online and local).
PRACTICAL SUPPORT & COMMUNITY MAPPING
I take care of housework & help you with household admin while I’m supporting you
in your home. But even more importantly, I help you develop and set up efficient systems.
When I’m not with you, I want you to feel confident and on top of things. I also, give you my inside knowledge of the best local services so you can outsource tasks or access community resources.
When necessary, I refer you to specialists or
support you to access them.
Comforting touch massage for mother
Support with self-care, community mapping, infant care,
parenting information, and light – housework is included.
ONGOING ATTENTION & CARE
I understand that things may pop up in between our visits and you may need extra
support during those times, which is why I am available via email, and phone support
up until your babies first birthday!
It is important to me that you feel supported, nurtured and supported during your first year with your new baby.
