£300 for 20 hours | £16 per hour
The first few weeks following the birth of a new arrival is often a bit of an overwhelming whirlwind. As your postnatal doula, we will provide non-judgemental practical and emotional support for you and your family, helping you to adjust to life with a new baby.
We offer a free, no obligation meeting where we can meet face to face (most likely over a cuppa!) to get to know each other a little more. During this initial meeting we’ll probably touch upon your birth experience, a little background information and discuss how you would like a doula to help and support you. The most important thing is to make sure we are the right fit for each other and you can get a better feel for whether we are the right doulas for you.
20 Hours of Postnatal Support
Our postnatal package includes 20 hours of postnatal visits usually spread across a number of weeks. Lauren is a postnatal doula, and our aim is to support you in your choices so you feel confident as a parent of a new baby. How you use our time will really be guided by what you need but below are some examples of the kind of postnatal support we can offer. It is by no means an exhaustive list so if there is something else you have in mind do contact us and we can have a chat about how we can help.
- Support with newborn care
- Breastfeeding support
- Keeping an eye on your baby to allow you to rest/shower/bathe
- Light housework
- Cloth nappy advice
- Babywearing support
- Fourth trimester information
- Understanding normal newborn behaviour
- A listening ear so you can be honest about your expectations and how you are adjusting
We charge £300 plus expenses for 20 hours of postnatal support. Beyond this you can either book another block of hours or additional visits can be arranged at a rate of £16 per hour (minimum 2 hours per visit).
