Individual Antenatal class

We meet in your home at a time that suits you and can cover whatever you would like... birth preparation, breastfeeding or specific areas. This could be a one off or we could plan a series of sessions.

Individual Antenatal visit

We meet in your home at a time that suits you and includes a full antenatal check as well as time to discuss any concerns and birth preparation.

Individual Postnatal visit

We meet in your home at a time that suits you and includes a full mother and baby check as well as time to discuss any concerns.

Breastfeeding support visit

I can usually be flexible with the timing so that my visit coincides with baby's feed to make the most of this visit.

Newborn Examination in your home

I have additional qualifications to carry out the full examination of your newborn baby and completion of the child health record "the red book".

This ideally should take place within 72 hours of the baby's birth. If your baby was born at home with NHS midwives, you are often asked to take your baby into hospital at this early stage for the newborn check. I can come to your home at a convenient time and carry out the examination with minimal disruption for you and your baby.

Mexican Rebozo Honouring the Mother Ceremony

It's difficult to describe what a profound effect having a "Rebozo" can have. It's a simple ceremony, honouring all that you have given during your pregnancy, birth and in the initial few weeks afterwards to your baby. It acknowledges your strength and courage and the journey you have been on emotionally, physically and spiritually. You lie on the floor or bed and I and a close companion chosen by you, wrap the Rebozo shawl around you, opening and closing it until the ceremony is completed. After a Rebozo, women have reported feelings of closure, peace and well being. It can be carried out any time ideally between 2 and 6 weeks after the birth but it can still have an effect months or years later.
