Why have postpartum support?
It doesn’t matter whether your baby was early, on-time or late; whether you had a straightforward pregnancy and birth or there were complications; whether you have a partner to help or you’re a single mum.
We're not meant to struggle through this alone.
The 'villages' and communities that supported & nurtured not only the emerging new life, but also the emerging new mother are all but gone.
Many of us come out of the other side of our birth experiences feeling like we've been hit by a car. We're trying to get our head around the physical changes, and society's telling us to 'bounce back' to normal. Whatever that is.
Mental health issues such as postnatal depression are majorly on the increase, regardless of gender.
But it doesn't have to be like this.
We might not be able to get the villages of the past back, but we're building new ones.
Postpartum support isn’t something just reserved for your first baby either - in fact it often happens that second or third time mums will seek out extra support because they didn’t have an enjoyable postpartum the first time around.
Below you'll find details of a couple of in-home support packages I offer. Together we can redefine postpartum.
You'll also receive the following:
12 months membership to the EMN Circle (worth £84)
Automatic enrollment into our support group for new mamas
Your Postpartum Gift Pack (worth £60)
This includes a number of Weleda Mother & Baby products to get you both off to a great start, as well as a recipe book

The One-Off Package
If you've already had your baby or they've come earlier than expected, the One-Off Package is for you!
Whatever the circumstances, this package is adaptable to fit your needs - but generally it includes:
- One 3-hour visit at home (I can try to arrange a visit to you if you're 'rooming in' at the Lancaster NNU, but this would be a shorter visit)
- Bodywork including instruction on self-massage & intuitive baby massage
- Home-cooked food & herbal tea
- A tailor-made mix of practical & emotional support as outlined above
- Email/Messenger support for 4 weeks
We can also include crystal healing and/or Reiki treatment in with any massage - and I can recommend some crystals for you. Just let me know when booking if this is something you would like!
