£525 for 20 hours | £30 per hour
The first few weeks following the birth of a new arrival is often a bit of an overwhelming whirlwind. As your postnatal doulas, 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 to get to know each other a little more. During this initial meeting we’ll probably touch upon your birth experience, get 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.
After this initial chat, if you decide that you’d like to work with us, we would also offer a free holding space session in order for us to get to know more about your birth, postpartum and feeding plans or journey so far in order for us to really understand what support you are looking for from us.
20 Hours of Postnatal Support
Our postnatal package includes 20 hours of postnatal visits usually spread across a number of weeks. Amy and Sarah are our postnatal doulas, 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 feel free to ask us about this.
- 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
If you decide that you would like more support after these initial 20 hours, we would suggest a check-in holding space session so we can make sure we’re all on the same page with the support you are after and just take stock of where you are at emotionally and physically.
We charge £525 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 £30 per hour (minimum 2 hours per visit).
We offer a free, no obligation initial chat with us either via Zoom or in-person so that you can tell us more about the support you are looking for, and we can decide together whether we will be a good fit. You can book this here.
