*Covid-19 Update: I will be recommencing in-home support in July 2020. New premium postpartum care packages will also be available. Please sign up to my mailing list below to be the first to find out more!
Are you preparing for the arrival of your baby, but worried about how you will cope with the exhaustion, heightened emotions or simply just the unknown? Do you value the importance of slowing down, resting and receiving help as you make the transition into motherhood?
So much focus is on the pregnancy and safe arrival of baby with much less thought often given to what happens when you get home and your new life begins. Imagine knowing how to best set yourself up to reduce stress and nurture yourself in the fourth trimester so you all you need to do is focus on healing, feeding and bonding with your baby?
The time immediately after the birth of your baby is the time for you to rest, be nourished and cared for. You are not meant to mother alone. This is where I can step in and give you the support, guidance and reassurance you need to help you feel confident and empowered in the choices you make for your family. It might be warming, nourishing food, clean sheets on the bed, someone to hold the baby while you take a bath or long hot shower or sharing resources to help build your village – whatever it may be – my job is to meet you at your point of need so you can ease into motherhood feeling supported and prepared.
“Justine made us feel comfortable straight away. She is gentle, caring, passionate about infant care (and the motherhood journey) and wise. Her experience and knowledge combine to deliver a holistic, nurturing, strategic approach to the postpartum period – from helping us navigate bottles and the crazy number of different teats on the market, making lactation cookies and tea, helping us plan ahead and keep our baby safe – she was our saviour. Looking back, the small, smart changes she made to our set up, would have taken us months to work out! Justine started with us when Harry was five weeks old – the only thing I’d change would be engaging her sooner!” Kate
