The first few days and weeks at home with your baby are equal parts challenging and wonderful for most families.
The support and information you receive before and during this time can make the difference between feeling stretched yet satisfied or feeling out of your depth.
I am so fortunate to work with mums to be and their partners, families and loved ones to prepare you for this amazing time.
Balancing your emotional and physical needs, your relationship, your baby's physical and developmental needs while experiencing one of the steepest learning curves imaginable is no easy task!
We can work together in your pregnancy to prepare and plan for this time, and help give you the tools you need to absolutely rock this time as a new parent!
