What do we do when we come to visit you? Usually start by putting the kettle on, and then…

  • Check in with you and baby, how was the night ? How are you feeling?

  • We can do a casual birth debrief if you would like, at any point.

  • If you are recovering from a C section we can go over what may be best to support your physical recovery and how we can help with that.

  • Find out how best we can support you each visit, we will always follow your lead, some days we may just talk and have a little cry or even a laugh and some days may be more practical. That is fine.

  • We can cook and sort for you, focus on getting some snacks in the fridge for the week ahead or cooking dinner for that evening.

  • We can babywear while you shower, take a nap, walk around the block.

  • We can help you get baby washed and ready for the day, assist you with bathing the baby or simply support you while you get you both ready.

  • We can go over feeding, make sure you are comfortable with how it is going and answer any queries you may have.

  • We can collect / drop off other children from school / nursery.

  • We can do a food/ clothes/ boots shop for you, make sure you have everything you and baby need.

  • We can take your dog for a walk or walk with you all.

  • You may want us to clean and hoover while you snuggle with baby or you may feel like getting some cleaning done and I can take care of baby.

  • Our number one priority is taking care of you, however that is most helpful for you.
