Practical and emotional support during the early days and weeks with your new baby. We support you to nurture and bond with your new baby as you develop your own mothering skills for your new and important role.
Having a postnatal doula to journey with you at such a special time in your life allows you time to get to know your new baby in a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
Postnatal Support is currently offered by Lisa. I offer a free consultation for you to meet with me and ask any questions. Alternatively, I am happy to chat on the telephone or by email. I look forward to hearing from you and would like the opportunity to support you in such an important role…
My postnatal doula support can include:
- Support with feeding your baby – by breast or bottle
- Assistance with caring for your baby
- Information and support on routines, sleep patterns, bathing, changing, swaddling and calming techniques
- Help to trust your instincts with regards to parenting
- Accompanying mum and baby to appointments
- Assistance with light household chores - laundry, house-keeping, grocery-shopping and meal preparation
- Assistance with caring for older children
- Driving you to appointments or school drop off – especially useful after a Cesarean birth

I prefer to support you for a minimum of 20 hours to be used in 3 or 4 hour slots between 9.30am – 2.30pm. However, do let me know what your requirements are and I will endeavour to be as flexible as I can. Please contact me for my availability.
Sometimes, you may like some support overnight. This can be to help out with bathing and implementing a routine for your baby or support with night feeds to allow you to catch up on much needed sleep.

“Knowing I had Karen and Lisa’s help at home took a weight off my shoulders while I was exhausted from the recovery pain of a C-section and lack of sleep. Their help at home meant I had more rest which I am sure had an impact upon my good a quick recovery. I would definitely have a postnatal doula again and I would choose Karen and Lisa.” New parents
“Having had a C-section, I was unable to lift, push our double-pram or drive, Lisa was indispensable, as she drove me around and did the school run with me, enabling me to be there for my eldest daughter as she started primary school. Lisa is fantastic at seeing what needs to be done and doing it, sometimes without me even realising it has happened until later! I felt that Lisa was able to understand the type of person I am quite quickly and therefore appreciate how I needed to be supported.” Tina & Mike with baby Freddie
