home visits to help prepare for your new baby

When you have all the information you need about how I work, and we have had a good chat on the phone to answer any questions you may have, you can proceed straight to booking once you are happy with all the details.

 

Alternatively, you may like to arrange a Home Consultation so that you and perhaps you partner too,  can meet me face-to-face.

 

If you don’t feel you need this initial visit, you might like to go ahead with the booking to secure dates, then arrange a Baby Prep session: this entails my coming to see you in your home, a few weeks prior to the birth, to discuss how best to prepare for the baby’s first few weeks as the newcomer in the household. I will give you advice about practical nursery layouts, products that are worth buying (or not), making sure you have all you need (or at least have it on order) for the big day.  It’s nice way to get to know me a bit before the big day and an opportunity to ask some of those questions that may be rattling around in your head that were not covered in your antenatal classes.

 

I can cast an experienced and practical eye around your home to offer some stress-saving solutions to problems before they arise, as well has have some fun getting you involved in a bit of practice of techniques such as nappy changing, burping positions, safe handling of a newborn and swaddling/comforting – all using my dummy dolly baby, Sophie. A fun session to arm you with some practical tips.
