Are you about to become a parent for the first time?
Are you confused by the choices of postnatal support on offer?
Perhaps your baby has already arrived, but you are finding things rather more challenging than you expected.
Would you like to feel more in control, more confident and calm with your baby?
If you are on this site for any of the above reasons, then you have taken one significant step towards finding some answers.
All parents benefit from seeking some form of guidance or coaching during the early weeks of their newborn’s life. They say it takes a village to raise a child. But when you live far from your family circle the first weeks with a newborn can feel like a lonely, exhausting and isolating time. Therefore, getting the right level of support and coaching at this pivotal point in your relationship has never been more crucial.
Thousands of people become new parents every day, and all of them feel hugely overwhelmed at some point during the weeks that follow.
By teaching you how to read and understand your new baby, I will help you gain confidence and feel more empowered as new parents. Having worked with over 5,500 babies over the past 24 years, I have plenty of tips and tricks to pass on. By offering you encouragement and reassurance along the way you will build a strong and instinctive bond with your baby.
Spaced coaching is a far less invasive option than hiring a maternity nurse who may live with you for 24 hours a day, often for up to 6 days a week.
I was catapulted into the world of newborns 24 years ago when my brother’s wife gave birth to triplet boys, and I offered to help them out in whatever ways I could. Well, in truth – I was working as a scuba diving instructor/underwater photographer in the Indian Ocean and my own mum volunteered me for the job – but that’s a story for when we meet!
The criticisms, opinions and judgments which rain down on new parents are legion, and this sometimes makes life hard as they fumble their way through early those first wobbly weeks.
When my nephews reached 8 months old, I made it a life choice to continue working with Newborns back in my home city, London. I work with parents to empower rather than take over. Together we build your confidence rather than knock it down.
Postnatal Coaching Packages can be tailor made so you can pick one that works for you. Perhaps a week or two, simply get you settled. Or you could opt for longer periods to support and help you adapt to your baby’s on-going development.
By showing you what needs to change and how to tweak routines to accommodate your baby’s ever-changing demands, I can continue visiting you periodically until your baby reaches 3 months old.
I listen to the wants, needs and concerns of each individual family, offering solutions that work for them. I can arrange a home consultation where we discuss everything in a relaxed environment, then put together a bespoke Postnatal Package proposal for you.
By choosing a Postnatal Package, spacing the visits so that you receive information in a continuous but measured flow, you have time to adapt to the changes that a new baby brings to your life.
My visits will scale back as your confidence grows, so you will have time to bond with your baby in private, yet feel secure in the knowledge that I will be returning at just the right points to move you forward until it is time for me to let you go.
