Information and reassurance for tired parents
This 4th Trimester Guide provides you with a foundation of knowledge, coping strategies, ideas and reassurance.
- an introduction to the 4th trimester
- common questions and comments
- the impact on you as a new parent
- preparing your home for your new baby
- your new baby’s needs
- your needs as a new parent
- looking after yourself
- potential challenges
- interaction & development

- what can help you
You can access this guide online and download resources to read and use at home
Here’s how it works:
- You can access the online guide and download the 4th Trimester worksheet to use in your own time.
- We will arrange a 90-minute 1:1 video session or phone call to go through your questions and to make sure you feel informed, supported and reassured about the early weeks with your baby.
As your 1:1 session is remote, I can work with parents from all over the country.
The benefits of these online sessions are:
- you can be comfortable at home with your baby
- you don’t have to rush and stress to get to the class
- you can meet the needs of your baby – feed, change, stand and rock
