Postnatal Consultations

Postnatal Consultations to give you informal reassurance & support.

Postnatal sessions can be crucial for parents who may be overwhelmed at times by different challenges. Expectations and pressure to get it right can create stress, so talking it through is beneficial.

Babies are always developing, growing and changing – as a parent, you are always learning and adapting to these changes. Good support, reassurance and simple coping strategies can make a huge difference to your confidence and ability to manage the different challenges.

Parents book postnatal sessions for many reasons…

  • new babies & new parents – practical support and reassurance
  • sleep for new and young babies
  • going back to work after maternity leave
  • being a mum – guilt, parenting challenges, juggling, loss of identity
  • feeling overwhelmed
  • meeting the needs of more than one child
  • managing stress & anxiety

You will benefit from

  • a calm knowledgeable approach
  • working with an experienced practitioner
  • notes & resources
  • ongoing information, support and reassurance
