Newborn & Parenthood Prep - £85

This is a fantastic workshop for first time parents who want to know more about what to expect in the Fourth Trimester. If you have not been around babies much or even held a newborn… then this workshop is for you!

We cover the following topics to get you more prepared for new parenthood;

  • Postnatal changes in the body
  • Finding your village of support
  • Newborn Care
  • Nurturing holds to calm and soothe baby, as well as how to read newborn cues
  • Babywearing

I have gathered all my training into making one fully loaded course about new parenthood. As a first time parent, you may have attended birth preparation courses already but it’s also very important to prepare for the early weeks of finding your way as new parents. If we are informed about what may come up in the fourth trimester, the transition will be alot smoother both for you and baby.

Classes are held in a beautiful studio at Station House Health & Wellbeing, St Nicholas on the A48. There is easy access from Barry, Cowbridge, Llantwit Major, Bridgend and Cardiff.

If you would like more information on preparing to breastfeed your newborn, there is a separate course for that on my services page.

Mindful Breastfeeding - £85

This is a one-to-one Antenatal Course specifically for expectant parents who are planning to breastfeed. My aim is to hold space for you to explore and learn about feeding in a clear and relaxed way. I am a fully certified practitioner through the Mindful Breastfeeding School, led by Anna Le Grange IBCLC. Our goal is to bring quality, up to date knowledge about breastfeeding as well as giving you the techniques to encourage relaxation and mindfulness in the fourth trimester.

As many of us are aware, stress and anxiety can pass on to baby when it comes to feeding, so we try and limit this by giving you quality breastfeeding information about three key areas; MIND, BODY & CONNECTION.

You will find out about breast anatomy, how to get a good latch and positioning baby for feeding but also how our mind plays a big part. Knowing how positively our brain reacts to relaxation breaths, calming music or a quiet environment gives you tools to use throughout your parenting journey… not just the newborn phase. When we as mothers feel calm and confident, our baby will also feel the benefit, and breastfeeding will be off to the best possible start!

Classes are held in a beautiful studio at Station House Health & Wellbeing, St Nicholas on the A48. There is easy access from Barry, Cowbridge, Llantwit Major, Bridgend and Cardiff.

A one-to-one course that covers different topics each session (mind, body & connection).

If you would like more information about the fourth trimester and newborn care, there is a separate course for that on my services page.

Classes are held at a beautiful studio based in Station House Health & Wellbeing on the A48.
Each 90min session is tailored to include everyone, I try to create a safe space where parents feel able to open up about their journey to parenthood and their experiences so far. It’s not only a supportive space for sharing information, but a place to make lasting friendships with people on the same path as you. There is time for a cuppa and cake too!

I have previous experience of supporting all journeys to parenthood, which includes fertility treatment and adoption, so please give me a call and we can build a bespoke package together. I am happy for any of my packages to be broken into monthly payments and each one can also be scaled to suit different needs, so please do get in touch to discuss your preferences with me!

As your Doula I use my training, knowledge and experience to provide continuous support for you and your birth partner in planning and preparing for your baby’s arrival. I also assist you in navigating the South Wales Maternity trusts, most of which I have extensive experience working in. I cannot make decisions for you, but can give you up to date evidence-based information so you and your partner can make informed decisions that are right for you both… it’s all about working as a team! I am also happy to show you relaxation techniques, make suggestions for positioning and other comfort measures during your labour.

If you are considering asking me to be your Doula, the next step would be to arrange a free, no obligation initial chat. At this meeting you can ask questions and get to know each other better. We can either chat over the phone, meet in person at a local park with a coffee, or via Zoom video call.

 

POST NATAL

Postnatal Support - From £30 ph

Tailored to those who want emotional, practical and informational support for both themselves and their immediate family following the first few weeks after birth or adoption.

Price typically includes any of the following:

  • Give mum time to rest and recover
  • Assist with breast/bottle feeding/ pumping
  • Encourage mum to grow in confidence with her new baby
  • Allow mum time and space to de-brief her birth experience
  • Provide emotional support for both parents
  • Spend some time with older siblings
  • Assist with baby care
  • Provide company when partner goes back to work
  • Make tea, coffee or light lunches

Parents often find it reassuring to know they have my support in their home or even on the end of the phone. I have supported parents in the postnatal period after birth and adoption, so my role within your household can be tailored to what you require at that time. It may be that I can take over care of the baby while mum takes a nap or has a bath, or free up time for dad while he goes shopping or takes some time out. I can entertain your older child while you establish feeding your newborn, or look after baby while you spend some quality time with your older child. Many women don’t take the full amount of time needed to rest and recover during postpartum… I am there to make sure you do!

Having someone who is calm, relaxed and used to dealing with newborn babies and toddlers can really help create a calm, relaxed atmosphere and family! I am primarily there to support and encourage so that I leave you as a close family unit with a confident mother who trusts her own instincts.
