With Your Baby

Post Natal Midwife Care in Your Home

Most people underestimate the value of postnatal care. Much emphasis is placed upon antenatal care and preparation for the birth of your baby. It can be quite daunting coming home with your new baby, not knowing where to get support from.

The support you receive can make a big difference in your adjustment to parenthood.



Lauras Testimonial re Private Midwife Care

I had known Julie from attending her groups at the hub and hypnobirthing day with our first child, so when I realised she was now offering private midwife care at home it was an easy decision for us to make.
I had some breastfeeding challenges with both children, having Julie on hand for our second with support, guidance and advice was invaluable. There were so many advantages, having one person visit at home, and the consistency of care made such a difference to us as a family, as well as Julie’s flexibility on the timing and frequency of visits. The reassurance for all things post birth for both me and my son was incredibly helpful, and kept me going on my breastfeeding journey. I am so glad we decided to invest in Julie’s care, if we have any more children we’ll definitely be doing the same again, I couldn’t recommend it enough. Laura March 19
