Sometimes, after you’ve had a baby, you may need a bit more support; whether it’s some reassurance or help with breastfeeding. I offer postnatal support up to day 28 after having a baby.
My visits can be a one-off or you can book several visits. More importantly, they are flexible and designed so that I am there for you when you need me. You don’t need to book in advance and please call me for same day visits. You can find how to get in touch with me here.
There is no time limit placed on my visits as it is so important to me that you are recovering well from the birth and that your baby is doing well.
This service doesn’t replace the role of your NHS midwife, it is designed to complement your community midwifery visits or for continuing support after the visits have ceased.
Additional Postnatal Support
Your community midwife or health visitor may be able to signpost you towards other postnatal support in your area. These could include groups at your local health or children’s centre, via your GP or other local community groups. There may also be breastfeeding cafes, groups where you can borrow or try slings to carry your baby in and other social events.
