It’s been a busy month seeing mums on my Monday & Wednesday bump & baby sessions
There have been many conversations about being a parent, juggling, tiredness, how unique life with a baby is and finding what works.
Feeding has been a big issue – breast-feeding, bottle-feeding, combination feeding, reducing feeds in preparation for work – along with baby weight gain and sleep.
I see mums in pregnancy, as well as with new and older babies so the conversations are varied as everyone supports each other and I offer as much reassurance as I can.
My sessions are often about just listening, providing a safe and supportive space to share and offload.
Conversations have included:
- friendship changes as well as relationship changes
- making it up as you go along
- feeling like you are getting it wrong
- never having a break
- feeling emotional
- being overwhelmed
- having bad days
I am always here to inform, support and reassure – it’s what I am trained to do and it’s what I am passionate about.
